FourFortyFour Thu 17-Mar-11 21:12:49

Thank you.

Boots no longer sell it.

Chemist - the assistant didn't know where it was.

I shall brave Tesco, thank you.

What's it for? Halfords battery top up is suitable for irons etc (and according to their reviews, a medical linear accelerator grin)

Halford or similar car spares shop. Also known as de-ionised water.

Asda do it in the car accessory aisle it's £1.50 for 2.5 litres I put it in my steam mop.

Thanks. I will take a look.

Do you have a condenser tumble drier? That water is distilled. Ask a friend

FourFortyFour Fri 18-Mar-11 08:20:58

No.

Gottakeepchanging Fri 18-Mar-11 08:21:43

You must know someone with one?

FourFortyFour Fri 18-Mar-11 13:41:06

No, why would I? confused. Anyway it has been said it isn't suitable.

Robert Dyas?

The water collected from a tumble drier is distilled, if you have one!

52Girls Fri 18-Mar-11 13:58:17

Oops, x post - sorry.

FourFortyFour Fri 18-Mar-11 13:59:31

I emailed Lakeland and they said I can use de-ionised water and DH got some of that earlier so I am covered now.

John Lewis - in the laundry section

As Gottakeepchanging says - water from the condenser drying machine is distilled. My mum uses this water in her iron. I just use tap water - but then my iron keeps breaking. Should I be using distilled water?

Gottakeepchanging Sun 20-Mar-11 23:21:39

Depends where you live,if it is hard water then yes using distilled makes ironed last longer.

Do you have a dehumidifier or condensing tumble-dryer (or know anybody that does)

It's the same thing.

Is de=ionised water distilled water? I use battery top up water for my CPAP machine but £4 every months is annoying me is de-ionised water chepaer and I wonder if I can use it in a cpap mahcine <<mills, probably if its suitable for a steamer as the humidifier is essentially the same idea only less steam>>

Kewcumber Sun 20-Mar-11 23:48:30

Just realised its late and that stream of mulling (rather than milling) is probably double dutch to most of you. but if anyoneknows do comment grin

Kew: Technically deionized water isn't distilled water - because the former is produced using ion exchange resins and the latter by distillation (ie vapourising and condensing the pure vapour leaving the crap behind). But these are essentially two different means to the same end - purified water with low ion concentration.

So for household purposes, deionized can be used in place of distilled, which is probably what you really wanted to know smile
