Samsung Dishwasher - Removing Hard Water Buildup
Chalk reminds you of drawing pictures on the sidewalk as a kid. But you don’t get that same feeling when you see chalk in your dishwasher. That white residue is from hard water, but you can learn how to make your appliances look young again.
Hard water contains a high amount of minerals like calcium and magnesium that build up over time and leave a scaly residue. Most homes in Canada have hard water. Even though you have an amazing Samsung appliance, the white grime can still accumulate. In a washing machine, it can build up on the drum and choke the filters; it can also build on the inside of a dishwasher and cause clogs. In both cases, your items won’t come out as clean. Maybe you didn’t care about dirty clothes or dishes as a kid, but you care now.
The best way to prevent hard water buildup is to buy a water softener or a whole home filter. With one of these, you’ll have soft water throughout your whole house.
If your budget doesn’t allow for a water softener, there are some cleaning tricks you can do - even if you still hate doing chores.
