Distilled water and wipes
05-19-2017, 10:59 AM
I can't locate distilled water in my area of the UK. Is it ok to use bottled water in my humidifier? Also, what brand of wipes does anyone recommend for daily cleaning of my pillow face mask?
Thank you for any help.

Distilled water is not required. It will help keep the tank clean from mineral deposits. That is not a problem if you wash the tank on a regular basis. A refrigerator with a filtered water dispenser will also provide a good source of water.

I agree with Crimson Nape on the water question. I use distilled water because I need it anyway for another use. The main thing to avoid is water with high mineral content (hard water).
Johnson's Baby Shampoo does a good job on cushions but can be a little messy for traveling. I will be interested in responses you get on wipes.

I use bottled water and generic un-scented baby wipes when we travel with good results.
Thank you for the fridge info. I have a water filter in mine so that will work well.
Bottled water is easy to get and I will try the unscented baby wipes. Thank you so much.

Thank Hi .Stan,
Looks like a vote for unscented baby wipes!

Is your kettle (if you even use one) covered with deposits from the water source that you use with it? If no, then that water source should work fine. Else bottled spring (still) water will work just fine.
I don't use special wipes, but just wet a kleenex/tissue and wet wipe the contact areas, followed by a dry tissue wipe. The facial oil residues will usually come off the pillows by then.
Fridge filtered water will work well too!
The doctor says coffee does not affect my tinnitus and it's got lots of antioxidants....

I have to clean out the kettle frequently as I live in a very hard water area, so I think I will continue using bottled water. A wet Kleenex sounds good too, so thank you for the tip.

The above is my opinion. It is just possible that I may, occasionally, be mistaken.
I am neither a Doctor, nor any other kind of medical professional.
