Our goal at Aquagear has always been to give consumers a fresh approach to incorporating filtered water in their daily lives. With so many mass market filters removing surprisingly few tap water contaminants, from the very beginning, we set out to design a state-of-the-art pitcher people could trust to remove contaminants and improve their health and well-being.
Your Aquagear pitcher can do so much more than just help you keep your water bottle full throughout the day! Our goal is for your pitcher to become one of your essential, go-to tools you rely upon each day to improve your health and happiness and promote wellbeing for you and your family.
Here are 15 of our favorite ways to use the Aquagear water pitcher throughout the day:
Keep your water bottle full
According to the American Heart Association, staying hydrated throughout the day - especially in the summer - helps your heart more easily pump blood through the blood vessels to your muscles, helps your muscles work more efficiently, and supports your overall health1. Use your Aquagear pitcher to ensure your water bottle stays full throughout the day and you’ll be more likely to stay hydrated.
Make great coffee
Ninety-eight percent of coffee is water. That’s why the country’s leading baristas only use filtered water when making coffee2. Filtering your water before using it to make coffee ensures that chemicals like chlorine aren’t lurking in your cup and will immediately improve the flavor of your morning joe.
Thousands of scientific studies either suggest or confirm that drinking herbal tea throughout the day improves your overall health and wellness3. Caffeine-free herbal tea, especially green tea, is arguably one of the healthiest beverages humans can consume. Use your Aquagear filter to ensure your herbal tea is as pure as possible.
Hydrate your pets safely
According to Dr. Ann Hohenhaus, a staff veterinarian at the Animal Medical Center in New York City, if you wouldn’t drink the water yourself, you shouldn’t give it to your pets4. Research suggests that clean water is just as critical for pets as it is for us5.
Freeze filtered ice cubes
Use water from your Aquagear pitcher to freeze ice cubes for use in your drinking water and other beverages. Impress your guests with frozen cubes of lemonade and rosemary made with filtered water for a refreshing treat, or simply put filtered water and cut up grapes and berries in popsicle trays for a healthy and cooling snack.
Cook healthy meals that taste great
If you value fresh, healthy meals, take the time to remove chemicals like chlorine from your water before using it for cooking purposes6. Filtering your water before using it to cook will preserve your ingredients’ authentic flavors and help ensure your food is healthy and safe to consume.
Infuse it with herbs and fruit
Why not spruce up your water each day with herbs and fruit? Not only will naturally-flavored water help make staying hydrated throughout the day delicious and fun, it will help you add nutritional benefit to the water you drink. Some of our favorite combinations include mint, lime and cucumbers or berries with orange slices.
Water your houseplants
Did you know that Martha Stewart often recommends using filtered water to water cacti, succulents, and other sensitive tropical and indoor plants7? Chemicals in unfiltered water can be too harsh on delicate houseplants.
Chemicals commonly found in tap water can have harsh, drying effects on your skin. Treat yourself to an at-home spa night. For a hydrating and refreshing face mask, mix 1 teaspoon of lemon juice with 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 tablespoon of yogurt and ¼ teaspoon of turmeric powder. Apply it to your skin and let it rest for a few minutes. Then, using a warm washcloth, remove the mask with warm, filtered water.
Drink hot water in the morning and at night
Did you know that drinking hot water with lemon first thing in the morning and last thing at night can improve immunity, boost your metabolism, purify your skin and body, and promote better digestive health8? Try it for a week with water filtered by your Aquagear pitcher and see how it improves your daily health and wellness.
