Once your charcoal stick has reached its capacity as a water purifier, no need to throw it in the trash!
One of the beautiful things about white binchotan charcoal is it can be repurposed for other uses around the house, kitchen, bedroom, or garden.
Here are some other ways to get great use out of your charcoal stick.
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.
