having a water softener in the bed and breakfast is cleanliness. With soft water, it is easier to clean things, and things stay cleaner.
Take for instance the glass-walled shower in the Florence Myrna room. One of the former cleaning helpers who went on to sell water softeners for a time, had great success because of the conviction in his voice when sharing his personal testimony of the first time he realized how great soft water is. It happened when he was confronted with cleaning the Florence Myrna room shower. He didn't believe he would ever get that glass to shine again. But much to his surprise, the soapy droplets dried on the glass wiped off easily, and the tile soon looked like new.
The same benefits apply to linens washed in soft water, and of course dishes. Notice how the glasses and flatware sparkle at breakfast in the morning at Dreams of Yesteryear.
And of course the waterman has to have a reverse osmosis filteration system in his house too! So the bed and breakfast has RO water on tap at the sink and chilled from the refrigerator, and the ice is made from RO water too. But where you really notice the difference between regular tap water and water treated with reverse osmosis is when you're drinking coffee or tea made with it. You are going to love that morning cuppa at Dreams!
I am happy that when you stay at my parents' bed and breakfast you will be able to reap the benefits of water softeners and reverse osmosis like I do in my home. Maybe you already enjoy them in your home now, in which case--well--Dreams of Yesteryear will really feel like home.
So have a drink of water on me when you come. And here's to your health. Cheers!
