Does softened water have an unnatural, slippery feeling?

Softened water feels different when compared to hard water, because it doesn’t leave deposits on your skin. It is important to remember that when using soap you can reduce the amount you use, as softened water makes detergents work more efficiently.

Any residue you feel on your skin is often a layer of soap, this occurs if you have applied slightly too much when washing. Simply rinse it off more thoroughly and you will get used to using smaller amounts.
