What do I to use so well water with a lot of iron won't discolor laundry?
By Maggie from St. Augustine, FL
At our last home we had a well with alot of iron in the water and we installed a water softner and used iron removing softening salt. It worked very well. Just don't run out of salt or you are back to the same dingy look that just won't come out of clothes.
Thrifty Fun has been around so long that many of our pages have been reset several times. Archives are older versions of the page and the feedback that was provided then.
My daughter has well water and it has a lot of iron in it. This stains all of her white clothes and makes her colored clothes dull. Does anyone know how to remove these stains and prevent this from happening again? Thanks for any help.

For laundry, I use Sunlight instead of the Tide I used to use. This may not be available outside of Canada, check the label. My dishes would get a brownish stain on them. Electrasol solved the problem. It does not contain bleach.
Good luck. (04/11/2008)
