Lye not dissolving

I used softened water - will that effect my lye water mix? It does not look dissolved, there are chunks in my water.


Sometimes there are hard, white flakes in the lye beads that take forever to dissolve. I usually try to crush them with the back of my plastic spoon until they are very small and then keep stirring until they disappear.

I try to do this when I first mix the lye and water. It seems to be easier while the lye water is very hot.
