I moved to Williamsburg, Virginia about two years ago, and since living here have found it very hard to rinse soap off my skin and find that dishes just washed often need to be rinsed out as a little soap remains. I have experimented with different soaps for me and different detergents for the dishes and nothing has worked (it doesn't help that all the soaps now have built in moisturizers). I am a bit phobic about chemicals and like them off me, which means that I rinse my hands for the longest time until they feel clingy. If I just rinse like I used to they have a slippery feel and seem to still have soap. So I finally got a strip that tests the hardness of water and found that the water here is soft. My question is: what do other people with soft water do? I know it's an odd question as most people complain about water being too hard. I'd rather have hard water thought if it rinses the soap off better.
