Lies the telly told me.

“Washing machines live longer with Calgon!”

Actually they don’t!

Have you seen that advert? Warning you about how your washing machine gets damaged by limescale if you live in a hard water area!

Well what Calgon don’t tell you is that all major washing powder and most generic store brands come with a water softner and as long as you use the correct amount of powder (too much is fine but not too little) you’ll never have a problem!

Lying bastards!
