Keep Your Summer Lemonades Tasty With Clean Water


There is one drink that is almost synonymous with the word summer. Lemonade. Just one drop can bring back memories of firefly catching and sitting on grandma’s porch.

Everyone knows the three special ingredients needed for this summer treat: water, lemons, and sugar. But that first ingredient doesn’t always get the attention it deserves.

It’s important to use filtered water or else you’ll end up with a whole lot more than three ingredients in your lemonade. Keep reading for some tips on getting the water just right so your lemonade is as good as grandma used to make...maybe better.

Avoid Hard Water

A device called a water softener removes the calcium and magnesium that gives the water this taste, making the water safer and more tasty to drink.

Once the softener removes the hard water ions, it replaces them with sodium, a necessary mineral for health and wellness. While hard water can build blockages in your pipes over time, water softeners can also aid with household cleaning and can make your hair and skin softer and cleaner.

There are many things to consider when choosing the proper water softener for your home. A very important aspect is the size. To find this size, multiply the number of people in your home by the number of gallons they use daily, then multiply that number by the grains of hardness in your water.

This number is the number of hardness grains that must be removed per day. Making the switch to softened water can help you save in the long run by keeping your pipes clean and supplying safe water to your entire family. Try using softened water for your next batch of lemonade, and taste the difference!
