Okay, this is going to sound like a stupid question....but here goes anyway - what is the difference between distilled water and drinking water? Is distilled water okay to drink? We just realized that we bought distilled water by mistake.

  • distilled water is more than okay to drink! the difference is that distilled water (and please correct me if i am wrong) is steamed water. But it's safe and healthy to drink. (from what i was told anyways)

  • yes distilled water means it has been purified by distillation to remove impurities such as minerals. it's actually the best water to drink

  • I read somewhere once that if you drink it long-term that it can make your hair fall out and cause high blood pressure. Don't know if that is true though.
