Have you ever been in a situation, being at home or in the woods where you’ve had to boil water for consumption? If so, didn’t you just love that flat taste? There are a couple of little tricks that can put a little flavor back into that water. Try shaking the water vigorously after boiling. This will aerate it somewhat. What, still not good enough? If you’re lucky enough to have a pinch of salt with you, you can add this to the shaken mixture. This is more about comfort and taste than it is hydration. Boiled water will hydrate you just as well as any other. Try these tips at home. Remember as many of these tips as you can practice to perfection will save time and frustration in a survival situation.
