The water supply in my neighborhood is very hard, and as a result, we installed a water softener. However, now I find it difficult to rinse off when in the shower. I rinse and rinse and rinse and I still feel like there is soap on my skin. In researching the problem, I have come across the notion that soft water actually rinses quicker, and the slippery sensation is not caused actually by soap. ("Soft water reduces the surface tension of the soap, which changes the way the water “wets” your skin, making you feel more “slippery”") However, the stinging in my eyes makes this very hard to believe that there isn't still soap there!
Is there a trick I can use to rinse off as quickly as with normal or hard water so that I don't get soap stinging my eyes after thoroughly rinsing off my head?
