Bottled Water

Bottled water drinkers give 3 main reasons for their choice: 

  • Taste: Many claim their tap water tastes bad, but a simple pitcher filter can probably fix it.

  • Convenience. A decent filter and a reusable bottle or stainless-steel flask can replace bottled water.

Reusable or DIY Dryer Balls can be used as an alternative.

You don’t have to spend money on the big brand names.
