Re: Tips on reducing the taste and odour of chlorine in tap water.
I had to laugh at the idea of filling a jug of water, putting it in the fridge overnight, and magically the chlorine will "leave the water overnight."
I was never good in science, so can someone tell me how this is even remotely possible? A sealed jug of water in the fridge for eight hours will remove the chlorine? I think not! And with a family of four or six, who's got extra room in the fridge for a huge jug of water!
The next tip is to drink the chlorinated water cold. I don't know about you, but I prefer water at room temperature.
Most of the time, I travel with water so generally it is not cold when I drink it.
Try this test, take four glasses of water: untreated, natural pure water; store-bought bottled water; Brita filtered water; and our newly chlorinated tap water.
Try drinking them when cold, and then at room temperature. There is only one that will taste the same at all temperatures.
Water should taste like water at any temperature.
How's does this grab you? Two children I know lost all of their teeth by the age of 10 from drinking only bottled water. And that's in Toronto.
I also agree with an earlier writer, if you're going to do this (chlorinate our water), at least put fluoride in it.
