I was thinking - rather than buying distilled water for an iron (or other appliance), is there a way to remove the minerals?
Remember - in the olden days - there was a tube filled with copper-colored filter material that was stuck into the top of a plastic water bottle (not the drinking kind). I'm thinking that the filter was essentially "distilling" the water (not exactly but perhaps close enough).
My mother would have killed me if I'd ever filled the iron without passing the water through the filter. Just tripping down memory lane...They don't make those kinds of gizmos any more, do they?!
Other than buying distilled water, what are our options today?
