Pure and Iodine Taste
It is possible to get rid of much of the iodine taste
in water, or at least camouflage it. Adding vitamin
C to water will drop some of the iodine out of solution,
making the iodine taste much less noticeable.
You can also add a drink mix to the water to drop
the iodine out, or cover the iodine taste. Make certain
that before you do either of these you have allowed
sufficient time for the iodine to kill giardia and
other organisms. That's 30 minutes under good condition,
much longer if the water is cold or turbid.
The drink mixes and vitamin C will weaken or eliminate
the effect of the iodine.
Pure and and Delicious Iodine
water purification, I actually kind of like the taste
of iodine. You get accustomed to it. I supposed this
is the admission of a hard-core. But the fact is,
once you've drank iodine water for a couple weeks,
you no longer even notice the taste.
For instance, I've been in the mountains daydreaming,
and actually spaced out whether I had treated water.
So there it sits, a liter of it, and I don't know
if it has been iodized.
When you aren't used to the iodine, you can just sniff
the bottles and immediately tell which have been treated
for water purification. You can sniff the bottles
and you'll easily smell the iodine in the water purified
But once you've been drinking iodined water for a
few weeks, you'll lose your nose and taste for it.
It just tastes and smells almost like normal water.
You get used to it. Then, you can't tell what you've
iodized for water purification, and what you haven't.
Then, when you get back to civilization, it's the
chlorinated water you're not used to. And it's chlorine
that smells terrible. You can easily sniff the chlorine
fumes rolling off city water.
