The Water In London Is The Worst Thing About It And I Don't Understand Why No One Is Talking About It
This is a city built on limescale.
Look, London is an incredible city, there is no debating that.
I mean, yeah, rent is absurdly high, you're never more than 10 feet away from a rat, and you only see the sun five times a year, but it's still incredible!!
However, there is a downside to this city that no one ever seems to talk about, and that's just how gross the water is.
London is a super-hard water area, which means our water has way more minerals in it.
Which means that everything you love and hold dear will be covered in limescale.
All tea in London tastes of delicious, delicious limescale and leaves these beautiful deposits.
It makes your hair feel gross and coarse because it leaves a weird residue.
You never really realise what you're missing until you go up north and experience wonderful, soft water that isn't determined to make your hair look shit.
London water means your iron always leaves lovely gifts of limescale residue on your freshly cleaned laundry.
And the water doesn't lather, so bath bombs just mean you'll be sitting in a tub of green water.
Also, the water pressure is always crap and you can never get it the right temperature??
And there is nothing we can do about it, because the Romans just decided that this gross water area is a good place to set up camp, and we just stuck with it ever since.
On the bright side, at least hard water has more calcium, so even if it makes our hair look gross, our teeth are better off!!
