look at water that you can buy that you grab and go can bring it home put it on the shelf

disintegrate and if the plastic is breaking down in the container it may
very well be breaking down and adding things into your drinking water contaminating water so while
it’s a good short-term storage use of water don’t refill these disposable water bottles unless you absolutely
have no other choice try not to store too much water in these flimsy water storage
bottles look on your cupboard kitchen shelf you probably have lots of reusable water bottles water storage
containers so you want to look carefully at the lids cups and bottles that have a flip-up lid
that are like commuter cups they’re fine if you’re just taking water for a short
drive in your cars but these tend to leak aren’t going to be airtight so
they’re not going to keep your water from evaporating so when you choose some
of the water containers from your shelf make sure you find water bottles that seal up

bottles that flavored water and sodas come in are a much sturdier than the
little water bottles but there is a concern because they do have an odor

toilet washing your hands rinsing a dish you can still fill these up with water

  1. Besides labeling H2O, I also date the container. After about a year I will water plants or find another use and refill and re-date.

  2. Outstanding Advise…….We have a 30 Gallon fish tank that we have "Glowfish" in…..we use 1 gallon Poland Springs water jugs to refill when we do a water change for the fish tank……they would/will be perfect to store an emergency water supply in……!!!!
    If you have them….even with the 5 cent return on them…..I would suggest that you keep some for emergency purposes….!!!

  3. I'm the same with soda bottles, they make great water for hygiene purposes. Same with vinegar/bleach bottles.

    Vinegar bottles I use the water for washing dishes, because any vinegar left is a great washing agent, and bleach bottles I use for flushing toilets.

  4. Love this video. We in the North East lose power for days and sometimes we have not water either in the winter. A few years ago we had a massive snow storm and I wasn't ready. I hadn't stocked up on water and regretted it. We had NO WATER!! Couldn't flush the TOILET for days! I learned my lesson then and now before winter hits, I fill up buckets, gallons, small containers, kettles, and whatever I have in the house and I'm all set and ready. It's good to flush the toilets, brushing your teeth, taking a sponge bath, endless.
