Introduction: Make Your Own Dehydrated Water

Are you tired of carrying heavy water bottles with you to the gym or when hiking?  Well, I have the solution to your problem - dehydrated water!  Dehydrated water takes up a fraction of the space of regular water and is so light you will feel like you are carrying nothing at  all.  And best of all, it is so easy to make anyone can do it.  So, read on and I will tell you how to make your own dehydrated water and how to rehydrate it when you are ready to drink.

Step 1: Materials

A pot
Clean drinking water
Storage container (an empty water bottle works well)

Step 2: Dehydrate the Water

Fill your pot with clean drinking water.  Tap water works fine or you can use bottled water.  Bring the water to a boil on the stove.  Continue boiling until all the liquid is evaporated.  What you have left is dehydrated water.  Now simply pour the contents into the storage container of your choice.  Dehydrated water does not take up much space so it can be stored in tiny containers but I find it best to put it straight into a water bottle.  That way you do not have to carry an extra container with you and can use the water bottle to hold the rehydrated water.  The next step will explain the rehydrating process.

Step 3: Rehydrate

Rehydrating your dehydrated water is very simple.  All you have to do is add clean drinking water to the container holding the dehydrated water.  It should rehydrate instantly.  If you wish you can give the container a shake to be sure none gets stuck to the bottom, but this is not really necessary.  Now it is ready to drink and guess what?  It will probably taste better because you made it yourself!
