Did you know that if you draw some tap water and leave it to stand for a while that will have exactly the same effect as running it through one of those expensive filter cartridges?
I always keep a large jug of water standing in the kitchen and any water I consume comes from it.
Last night I forgot to refill my jug and feeling thirsty and bleary this morning I filled a glass directly from the tap; I nearly retched as the waft of chlorine hit my nose - the water didn't even make it down my throat, fortunately I had some soya milk (unsweetened ) in the fridge and drank that instead.
It really brought home to me the difference between 'filtered by standing it in a jug' water which is finest spring water compared to that drank straight from the tap.
Try it and see!
And the foot spa?
A large washing up bowl (big enough to comfortably accommodate your feet) and about 500 glass marbles (cheap and easy to find on ebay) warm water and maybe a few drops of peppermint oil or whatever takes your fancy; just let those marbles massage your feet!
This is the first and very possibly the last in my 'money saving' series...
