What is Distilled Water?
Distilled water is water that has been gently heated, then condensed, and collected into a container. It’s very similar to the process of evaporation, condensation, and rainfall. Distillation machines mirror the hydrologic cycle. This is the best water purification method because it is the most natural. As the water is heated, contaminants like viruses, bacteria, lead, and arsenic are left behind. Clean steam is condensed and collected. It is this pure, contaminant-free water that we call distilled water. [Read our full article titled What is Distilled Water?]
