How Exactly Does Mizzl Binchotan Charcoal Purify Water?

White Binchotan Charcoal loves adsorbing things!

What is adsorption you ask? Adsorption is different than Absorption in that molecules are drawn to the surface rather than being absorbed into it. In adsorption, the toxic chemicals are attracted to and bind to the surface of the charcoal, effectively removing toxins, poisons, harmful chemicals as well as unwanted gases.

So how does Binchotan Charcoal work to purify water?

The surface of Binchotan Charcoal is made up of macro and micro pores which allow the charcoal to attract and adsorb a range of unwanted particles in water. These contaminant are then held in the surface of the carbon until you boil the charcoal (which then releases all the contaminants).

The water moves through trillions of micro cavities inside the White Charcoal, leaving your tap water purified, naturally softened, and ionized, while being enriched with vital minerals such as potassium and magnesium. 

How to Use Mizzl Binchotan Charcoal Stick

Step 1: The charcoal will be dusty when you take it out of the packaging. Give it a light rinse and brush off any excess ash.

Step 2: Transfer the charcoal to a pot of water and boil for 10 minutes. Drain the water and allow charcoal to cool completely. 

Step 3: Once the charcoal is completely dry, fill your favorite container or bottle with water and place the charcoal inside. During this time the charcoal will adsorb the impurities in the water. For best results, let charcoal work its magic for at least 2-3 hours before drinking. The longer the better!

Step 4: Feel free to leave the charcoal in the container and refill as necessary. The charcoal will continue to work for 2 to 3 weeks until it needs to be re-activated.

Step 5: Re-activating the charcoal is simple. Boil it for 10 minutes, let it cool, and it's ready to go.
