While ordering your bottled water through Glen Summit Spring Water is the first step to enjoying our all-natural, crisp water, properly storing it can be the deciding factor in its freshness. Believe it or not, improperly storing bottled water can have an adverse effect on the water itself, as harmful pathogens and chemicals can get inside, even when the bottle is sealed. So, in an effort to help make your Glen Summit Spring water the best it can be, we’ve put together a few tips on how to properly store your bottled water for maximum freshness.
As with other foods, such as chocolate and peanut butter, the best place to store bottled water is in a cool, dark place. Now, whether this means your refrigerator or your pantry is entirely up to you, as both are optimal conditions for bottled water. Leaving water bottles sitting in direct sunlight for an extended period of time can cause some of the chemicals found in the bottle itself to break down and coalesce into the water. Not only is that just plain gross, but it can come with several health complications as well.
In addition, you should refrain from putting your cases of bottled water near toxic chemicals, such as gasoline, paint thinner, and certain household cleaners. The nearer the water is to these substances, the more likely the chance is that some of these chemicals will slip through the plastic and infect the clean water you are drinking.
Whether it’s a case of our bottled water or one of our 5-gallon jugs, properly storing your water can go a very long way. With all the events happening in Flint and many public schools this year regarding water contamination, why leave yourself up to chance?
