  • It's water that has been purified through distillation. They boil it and collect the steam. It doesn't have the extra minerals and things that regular purified water contains. Yes, you can buy it by the gallon.

  • I actually have a home distiller. You fill it with water, and the water is heated so that it condenses into another container, removing all impurities. You should see the gunk that comes out of regular old tap water!!

  • Yes. I have to drink it bc my body manufactures kidney stone. I worry it will screw up my electrolytes but the doc says drink it. I have only seen it in gallon size but it's normally every where you see regular bottled water by the gallon.

  • distilled water is water that the impurities have been removed like heavy metals, by steam method and they collect the steam and keep it as water and the remaining calcium, copper, lead, and sediment is collected someplace and don't know what they do with that.

  • Yes you can get bottled water that is distilled. although i think all that means is the watter was left out in the air. i believe the you can get jugs of distilled water

  • Exactly as the first poster said. Equiptment like irons and steamers suggest distilled water because it greatly reduces the minerals that eventually clog up the inside. I''ve never seen it ijn anything smaller than a gallon

  • Distilled water is sold most places, but I find it the least available. I see much more reverse osmosis water available, it's done by a less involved process.

  • yes it is better for you, and typically what most facial rooms use. (distilled water, because it's better for your skin, less chemicals and minerals to effect the facial procedure).
