Do you think it’s strange that there is chlorine in the drinking water in the United States? I know that when I traveled to another city recently, I could smell the chlorine in the tap water there and it made me not want to drink it. I understand that chlorine kills germs, and that’s why it’s in our drinking water, but it’s also dangerous to ingest chlorine. While we probably aren’t going to be able to change the fact that the chlorine is added to the water, we can do our best to filter our water and remove the chlorine naturally.
There are many different levels of quality water filters, and anything from a basic faucet mount filter to the Big Berkey is better than nothing. If you don’t want to spend any money at all on a water filter, that’s fine. There are other free options available.
1. Leave a water pitcher out uncovered overnight. In the morning, you’ll discover that all the chlorine has evaporated from the water! Of course, this method only removes chlorine.
2. Boil a gallon of water at a rolling boil for one minute. That will help remove chlorine and other organisms.
No matter what method you choose to filter your water, something is better than nothing.
