Distilled water is often reccomended for items like clothing irons, steam devices, etc. The lack of any minerals, etc. keep the appliance cleaner.Hey all, anyone used deer park distilled water as a base for all-grain? Just got a bunch and noticed it says “for small appliances only”
I agree- it's all silly... but i think this choice came from the lawyers, not the admen:Have to laugh. One can never outguess marketing, but distilled water is distilled water no matter what the aspiring Madison Avenue types try to add to it.
Or mess with it - I don't think the "ideal for use in small appliances" means it's "industrial water"
Probably some idiot was adding the water to big car batteries or the like and got hurt, so the water company got sued.noticed it says “for small appliances only”
Searching around, I have not seen any labels with the word "only" but it does seem like Deer Park labels their Distilled Water with the idea that it is not intended for drinking. It could just be because something like their Spring Water would taste better, but a search does turn up some recommendations to not drink straight Distilled Water...that the lack of minerals means it will readily absorb minerals from other sources like containers and your teeth.
