Just to add to medusa...the biggest difference I have w/ my mildly hard water is it takes soap longer to suds up, and my skin gets "squeaky" clean. I get build up of minerals in my hair too, and use Neutrogena's clarifying shampoo once a month 2 remedy the prob. When I had softer water (my hair is much better w/ this) it makes skin and hair more slippery, and much less soap/shampoo is needed. You could buy some ph strips/hard water test kit to see for sure...or anyplace that sells water softeners usually gives them out for free. HTH!=)
