A study conducted for the Water Quality Research Foundation looked at the impact of water hardness on automatic dishwashers. Soft water was found to be 12 times more effective at cleaning dishes than increasing the amount of detergent used. Researchers also found that the most important factor in removing stains from clothing was water softness. Reducing water hardness was up to 100 times more effective at stain removal than increasing the detergent amount or washing with hotter water.
