Random information on the term “SCUM”:

In this reaction, the sodium ion in soap is replaced by calcium ions to form insoluble compounds.

Lime soaps are ineffective in washing dishes or clothes or hair. Thus, hard water needs large amounts of soap to form a lather, and in hair washing, the soap scum sticks in the hair. Synthetic detergents are less susceptible to the effects of hard water.

Although soap scum is generally considered a nuisance, its components, calcium stearate and magnesium stearate, when produced intentionally, are very useful materials in the polymer and pharmaceutical industries.
