Lovelies, do you drink tap water? Do you filter it?
Balazs and I’ve been using different water filters on and off for years. It seemed like a good option for healthier and tastier water and we even tried overlooking the weird aftertaste it left at times. Did that happen to you too?
Anyway, for the past several months everyone around kept telling me to try binchotan charcoals, but being a bit sceptical about it, I wanted to wait till it felt right. So after reading and seeing how well it works, last week I got it and started to use it daily.
Basically, Binchotan charcoal is a black stick made in Japan that has tons of uses - like purifying drinking water. When you get it, simply follow a few instructions. (Adrianna has a great how-to). Afterwards you can just stick it into your water jug and let it do its magic for up to a few weeks. The surprising thing is that the water tastes so much fresher and with no aftertaste or smokiness of any kind. Plus, it looks pretty and one stick can last for up to a few months if you follow the re-juicing routine correctly.
If you haven’t tried it yet, you totally should! You will be surprised how tasty your tap water will get! Thoughts? Have you tried it already? xo
P.S: I use those after Erin's recommendation - they seem great!
