I like to drink water. Specifically cold water with a lot of ice. The problem with this is that I detest tap water. Just the thought of filling up a glass directly from the sink makes me nauseous.
In Berlin I purchased this
In Minsk we had a water distiller, similar to this
Oh how I miss that thing!
Now in Dublin we are back to using the Brita pitcher. There is only one problem, mold. Mold that is growing inside the pitcher. I've changed the filter, bleached it, scrubbed it down with isopropyl alcohol and water, and the mold continues to grow back. NASTY!
As I mentioned above, the thought of drinking water directly from the faucet is disgusting to me, imagine how I feel about drinking water out of a moldy, Brita pitcher. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
The second water woe...
When I pour of glass of water, I never get to enjoy it alone. As soon as I turn my back, a four legged critter has her, or his, face in the glass. Apparently "people" water tastes better than oh say, the perfectly good, refilled twice a day "cat" water at their feeding station.
Clearly I'm nuts because sharing water with my cats doesn't bother me nearly as much as drinking water from a moldy Brita pitcher.
