If you’re looking for a way to get rid of excess moisture and save money, then a dehumidifier might be just what you need. But what about drinking the water that comes out of one? Is it safe for humans to drink? In this article, we’ll explain why dehumidifier water isn’t exactly sterile and why it’s actually good if you’re looking for something other than tap water.
Dehumidifier water is actually safe to drink (in moderation, of course), even though it’s not the freshest tasting drink you’ll ever have.
The reason dehumidifier-generated drinking water is so much more palatable than other types of tap water is because it has been boiled and cooled before being bottled. Boiling kills bacteria and viruses that could make you sick if they were in your cold, hard tap water. Cooling the same water again makes it less acidic and therefore easier on your stomach.
There are several ways to improve the taste of dehumidifier-generated drinking water:
Buy a reverse osmosis filter system at a local home improvement store or online retailer like Amazon or Lowe’s (if you don’t want to pay for an expensive model). They’re very effective at removing all minerals from their filters, so you’ll get purer tasting water without any added chemicals or additives.* Make sure your fridge door doesn’t close tightly enough around these filters when installing them inside your fridge compartment—this can damage them over time if left unattended!
Unlike tap water, which is filtered and treated with chemicals to remove bacteria and other contaminants, dehumidifier water isn’t exactly sterile. It does have some benefits for you if you drink it in small amounts:
- Dehumidifier water can help patients with an open wound or skin condition that causes swelling. The minerals in the chlorinated water can help reduce pain and inflammation from these conditions, says Dr. Xavier Caulfield of the University of Auckland in New Zealand.
- Dehumidifier water can be good for your health if you don’t have any other problems besides having too much body moisture (commonly called “dampness”). Drinking too much could cause dehydration, which leads to low blood pressure and headaches—and that’s not good! This effect is most pronounced when drinking hot beverages such as soups or hot chocolate because they’re higher in fat content than cold beverages such as tea or coffee which contain more carbohydrates instead; thus leading us back full circle…
If you’re thinking about drinking dehumidifier water, it’s important to understand what exactly is in it. You might be surprised by how much of the mineral content is actually good for your health and how little is actually bad for your health.
Dehumidifiers are capable of removing moisture from the air, but they don’t remove all of it—they leave behind some moisture that can be harmful if consumed in large quantities (which is why we recommend buying a dehumidifier). The minerals contained within most brands of bottled water are safe to drink on their own; however, many brands also contain other substances such as fluoride or arsenic which could lead to adverse reactions if consumed in large quantities over time.
- Use a water filter. If you are concerned about the safety of drinking dehumidifier water, it’s best to use a filter on your tap before using the water for cooking or drinking.
- Don’t drink from the dehumidifier itself. It is recommended that you do not give any type of stored material (including condensation) directly into your mouth or eyes—especially if there are any foreign objects present in this material that may cause an infection or irritation in those areas.* Never use a humidifier as an alternative source of drinking water! There are some people who believe that their pets can drink this type of “dehumidified” liquid but this is false; pets should always be kept away from anything potentially harmful like chemicals and cleaners so don’t try giving them any kind of diluted version either!
There are alternatives to using a dehumidifier. The first is to drink from the tap and use filtered water for cooking and cleaning, but this isn’t necessarily an ideal solution because you’ll have to wait for your tap water to be purified before consuming it. Another option would be buying bottled or filtered water, which can get expensive depending on where you live. If you’re looking for something cheaper and more convenient, consider investing in a pitcher with built-in filters instead of purchasing several separate ones separately; they’ll save money while still providing clean drinking water!
You may have heard the term “dehumidifier water” or “humidifier water” before, and most likely you thought it was a bit of a joke. But the truth is that dehumidifier water is actually perfectly safe to drink—as long as you remember that it isn’t as fresh tasting as tap water! If you’re looking for something healthier than tap or well water without sacrificing on taste, consider using one of these other options instead.
