Is there a difference in Distilled Water vs. Drinking Water when buying it from the store?
No, Not really. It has been proven that these bottled water companies are making false statements about how much purer their water is. I saw where they did a study and busted several of them for doing this. It is a huge waste of money.
Distilled water has many great uses, but drinking is not really one of them. This is because it is void of any natural salts and minerals - which makes it great for steam cleaners and radiators, but bad for IV bags and drinking. If you try drinking it you'll notice it has an odd flavor and doesn't really quench your thirst. Stick to water designated for drinking, or better yet, drink filtered tap water.
Jthomp42 is correct in that most bottled water companies have been making false claims. Studies have shown that bottled water is no better for you than tap water and in many cases could actually be worse for you. There are a lot of reasons for this but one is that municipal tap water is more highly regulated than bottled water is.
I concur... Filtered tap water is better than most bottled water products on the market today.
I agree, so much so that I wrote a hub on filters, and several about the value to our bodies of drinking water. Here is the one on filters: http://watergeek.hubpages.com/hub/Home- … -Purifiers
Distilled water is pure water. It is great for humidifiers and steam irons, but it just does not taste as good as mineral water. Unfortunately, with the problems we have with water quality it is something you can rely on. Try using it to make tea and coffee, or chill it with lemon, cucumber, mint or fruit.
Drinking store-bought bottled water is simply dangerous. You have no idea if it's just tap water (in which case it's chlorinated), or if it's been baking in the sun or in the back of a lorry for hours on end (in which case it's full of toxins from the plastic leaching into the water). As for distilled water, it should only be used for de-tox for a short period of time and is not meant to be consumed long-term, as long-term use can pull electrolytes from the body and increase the body's acidity, leading to higher risk of osteoporosis and a host of degenerative diseases. So, better to stick with filtered tap water.
