Distilled water (Distilled water is water that has had many of its impurities removed through distillation. Distillation involves boiling the water and then condensing the steam into a clean container. Distilled water is favored for use by manufacturers for use in their appliances because of the lack of impurities and minerals which can cause damage or a build-up of minerals. There are plenty of specific uses for distilled water including use in lead acid batteries, automotive cooling systems, steam irons, household aquariums, cigar humidors, airplane jet engines and hospital equipment. Once properly blessed, it can be used as holy water.)
