whiter and brighter results and extend linen life while reducing detergent bills
Whether it is hardness, iron,
or turbidity, water quality directly affects the cleanliness of the wash and the
life of linen. Hard water does not clean as effectively as soft water. It may

Our savings were between 25 % and 35%."
