Can I Use Water From My Dehumidifier In My Iron

If you’re like most people, you probably have a dehumidifier in your house. Maybe you use it to keep the air dry during the winter months or to keep your basement from getting too damp. But did you ever think about using the water from your dehumidifier in an iron? That’s what I did! And now I’m sharing my findings with all of you so that we can all be happy and healthy (and maybe even rich!).

Tap water

Tap water is safe to use. It does not get mineralized, meaning it’s not a good source of minerals. Tap water contains chlorine and fluoride to keep your teeth healthy and prevent cavities, but there’s also bacteria in it that can cause an infection if you drink too much of it.

Tap water may be chlorinated if you live near a big city or if you have a well close by where people dump their pet waste into the ground (this happens). Chlorine kills many harmful bacteria so tap water isn’t as dangerous as distilled water—but still worth thinking about before buying bottled stuff!

Tapwater may also be filtered with carbon filters like Brita filters so the amount of stuff being removed from these types differs slightly depending on brand/model used.*

Distilled water

Distilled water is a type of water that has been purified by boiling, cooling and then condensing the steam. It’s usually used in laboratory equipment and other scientific applications. Distilled water is not recommended for drinking or cooking, but it can be used in an iron as long as you make sure there are no chemicals added to tap water before it reaches your tap.

Tap water may have minerals and other impurities added to it during processing at home or at work; this means that distilled water will have fewer contaminants than city tapwater (which also varies from house-to-house).


Dehumidifiers are used in many different places, including homes and offices. They’re also used in vehicles to remove moisture from the air inside your car or truck.

In order to create water from dehumidifier, you must first turn on the fan of your device. As the fan pulls air into the unit, it passes through a filter that removes dust and pollen from it before moving into another tank where condensation occurs as a result of heating up water molecules (H2O). This process creates more space within an enclosed container so that more moisture can be removed before being re-used for any other purpose such as watering plants or washing laundry clothes!

You can use the water from your dehumidifier in your iron, but know that it may not have all of the minerals.

You can use the water from your dehumidifier in your iron, but know that it may not have all of the minerals. Tap water is usually fine for use in an iron because it contains many minerals—but not all tap and well water are created equal. If you’re using distilled or reverse-osmosis (RO) filtered tap water, then there are certain things to keep in mind:

  • Distilled water may be too pure for your iron’s purposes.*
  • Dehumidifier water might be too pure for your iron.*

You should only use distilled or RO filtered tap/well waters if you have one available at home and don’t mind buying more expensive bottled waters (and risking cross contamination).


We hope we’ve been able to answer your question and give you an idea of whether or not it would be safe to use the water from your dehumidifier in your iron. If you have any more questions, please let us know!
