    Default Bottled Water

    With the summer heat, we are buying cases of water a week. After guests

    leave, I find partically empty bottles all over. With costs rising all

    the time, I hated pouring all that money down the drain. So, I've

    started recycling water; I have an ivy on the top of a wall unit;

    really hard to reach with a watering jug, but, easy to tiptoe and pour

    bottled water in the top, haven't spilled a drop. I use some in my

    steam iron, easier to pour than from a gallon jug of distilled water.

    and the cheapest yet; I wash and sterlize an empty water bottle, fill

    it 3/4 full of tea and freeze. When the kids go 4-wheeling, fishing or

    working outside, the tea is a big hit, lasts a long time, the plastic

    bottles can take a beating and don't leak. thanks

    We wash and refill water bottles, too. We also do soda

    bottles. They can be washed then filled with water, tea,

    juice. When my niece was a very independent very young lady, her

    mother would have a bottle in the bottom of the kitchen door with

    just enough milk in it for her cereal. She had her bowl on the

    counter, along with a container with just enough cereal for her

    breakfast beside the bowl. When my niece was ready for breakfast, it

    was easy for her to fix her own. Was it a bit more washing for Mom

    to do? Yes, but her daughter was really proud of being able to fix

    for herself.

    This is a good idea and I do it to for school.

    We have been saving $ when we go out to eat by ordering water to drink.While

    visiting in NC at a China Buffet I ordered water. He gave me a bottle of

    water for $1!!!!!!!!!!!Guess they are learning also.

    Bottled water sure beats buying sweetened drinks both cost and health-

    wise. It's also a good idea to teach your family to drink water in

    Restaurants (including fast-food places). A big money saver in the

    course of a year.

    Has anyone read the dangers of refilling water bottles? Buy a type

    that can go into the dishwasher and be sterilized if necessary. A

    great brand is SIGG. They sell different sizes and they can be washed

    properly whereas the plastic type that water comes in cannot be washed

    properly. Even using a bottle brush on them isn't recommended.

    Bottled water is no bargain, and plastic bottles are bad for the environment if not properly recycled.





    I do agree that having some bottles on hand to re-wash and re-use is a good idea. My DD got a 12-bottle case of half-pints on sale, and has been reusing the bottles indefinitely for her 3 1/2 y.o. She keeps some filled with water in the fridge so he can help himself to a cold drink without making a mess. She also fills some 1/3 to 1/2 full and freezes them, and tops them off with water to take with them when they go out. She and I do the same with larger bottles. We drink almost no soda and we do drink water when we go out for a meal.





    If I bought bottled water on a regular basis I would be in the "poor house" in a hurry!
