Aerating Boiled Water Gives It Oxygen It Has Lost
Having to boil water is often a temporary necessity.
However, the taste of cooled boiled water is tinny, and drinking it gives you a headache.
How to avoid the headache or bad taste?
Get two jugs of equal size or else fill up the smaller jug with boiled water that has been allowed to cool to room temperature.
Begin pouring water from one jug to the other, creating a waterfall through the air.
Do this a half-a-dozen times. Now the water is ready to drink and it will taste good!
How does this work?
Falling water takes on oxygen atoms from the air, thus aerating the boiled water.
The tinny taste is gone and no one will get a headache from drinking it.
"Okay, Grandpa and you kids, bottoms up! "
