Binchotan activated carbon filters have been used to filter water in an ecological way since the 17th century. The original raw material comes from the branches of the Ubame Oak (Quercus phillyraeoides), an exceptionally hard tree. Made in Kishu, Japan.
This product must be used to filter drinking water. It reduces chlorine, balances the pH and mineralizes tap water, making it ideal for areas where the water is very 'hard' and has an unpleasant taste.
It has a very porous surface that helps remove impurities from the water.
HOW TO USE
Before the first use, scrub with a brush under water to remove dust and ash residues. Boil the charcoal in plenty of water for 10 minutes.
Put in a bottle or jug of water. Consume after, at least 4 hours, and before 48.
To reactivate the properties of the filter, boil it again for 10 minutes every 2 or 3 weeks.
Using it daily, it has an approximate durability of 3 months.
Some parts of the carbon can be dislodged in the water. Although it is totally harmless, you can strain it to make sure there are no remains. This step is essential if the water is to be consumed by babies, as accidental choking could occur.
Once its useful life as a filter has expired, it can be used as a deodorizer and dehuffer inside shoes, furniture and drawers.
Produced from the branches of the tree from sustainably managed forests.
At the end of its useful life, it can be composted.
Vegan and plastic-free product.
