Replacement carbon for Eau Good drinking bottle
Specially cut for the size of the Box Appetit Eau Good drinking bottle from Black + Blum, there are the replacement carbon sticks. The Box Appetit Eau Good by Black + Blum is a drinking bottle which contains the traditional Japanese Binchotan activated charcoal and thus makes the tap water tasty.
Activated carbon cleans the tap water
The Japanese Binchotan activated carbon has an extra space in the bottle. Activated carbon has been used in Japan since the 1st 7. century. The coal balances the pH value, reduces the chlorine content and even enriches the tap water with important minerals. The coal is made from sustainably cultivated wood by charring it in a low temperature kiln and then heating it to about 1000 degrees until the wood glows red. Finally, it is covered with a mixture of soil, sand and ash. The result is a porous rod with many cavities. The surface attracts ions of pollution and simultaneously releases minerals, such as calcium, iron and magnesium, which improve taste and are beneficial to health, into the water.
Cleaning and & care instructions
In order to achieve an optimal result, the water should be filtered overnight. But even after just one hour, you notice the first differences in the quality of the water. The charcoal filter lasts for about three months if used daily. The charcoal can be refreshed for another three months by boiling it for 10 minutes and then letting it dry. Soap or detergent should never come into contact with the coal. After that it can be recycled in many ways. The coal releases its nutrients into the plant pot, for example. As a moisture absorber, the charcoal can also be placed in the cat litter tray or laundry basket.
Flavoured water, such as tea or juice, should not be poured into the bottle. From time to time small particles can flake off the coal. However, these are not harmful to health, but even prevent digestive disorders.
Clean the bottle by hand with hot water and detergent. The coal should be removed first. Binchotan carbon removes chlorine from drinking water, which is why bacteria can form faster than usual. The bottle and cork should therefore be thoroughly cleaned at least once a week. The cork is particularly easy to clean with hot water and lemon juice.
