    Red face In the mean time..

    Hello all! I just ran out of distilled water last night and won't be able to get more until Thursday. So my question is, what kind of water can I use until then? I live in the city so I presume it's heavily chlorinated. Could I boil my tap water to take the fluoride, chlorine, and all other harsh chemicals out? I just need some safe water to mix CGD and mist with until Thursday. Thanks!

    My understanding is that if you leave chlorinated water out for twenty four hours, the chlorine will evaporate. I would just do that Hopefully someone else will have better suggestions!

    You're supposed to use special water? Huh.

    And everyone's right about just leaving it to sit for a day or so. I don't see why boiling it wouldn't work as well. That would probably be better, actually, but I've never had a problem with my tap water.

    A lot of people think chlorinated water is bad. I use water from my brita filter pitcher just to play it safe.
