Acidic Water has Many Great Uses!
Water ionizers of course produce a wide range of alkaline ionized water pH-levels, but with every quart of alkaline water poured you will get anywhere between 1 pint and 3/4 quarts of acidic water. Acidic water is not waste-water. In fact it has many great uses. Anyone who owns a water ionizer should know these benefits!
In the following video you can see me testing the pH of the acidic water that comes out of my Athena Water Ionizer while I am pouring alkaline ionized water to drink. I like to drink a pH of about 10 to 10.5 and when I do, with the Athena water ionizer, I’m able to also get close to -800 ORP [wonderfully high levels of antioxidants] in my water. Sipping on this all day long gives me great cardio-vascular, and other free-radical scavenging benefits which I have definitely noticed!
While I’m getting the healthy water my body loves, I am also collecting the acidic water that my hair, skin, laundry and plants love. Look for a brief outline and description of the most popular uses of acidic water just below the video.
What are the Main Uses of Ionized Acidic Water?
- Chemical-free antiseptic, germ-killing, capabilities [just spray on any surface you want to be germ-free]
- Beauty-water capabilities. The pH-levels of 4 – 5 are very healthy to spray on or otherwise rinse skin or hair with. The slightly acidic pH is needed to close pores and hair-cuticles up tight and make your skin/hair softer and more “toned”.
- Benefits-of-Acid-Water-for-Plants: Plants love slightly acidic water as well. Acidic-water helps the acidalkaline-balance-in-plants, which is somewhat the opposite of animals. So, have some fun watering all of your plants with acidic-ionized-water!
- Acid water is also great to add to your bath water or laundry. It naturally softens it and makes it need less soap for cleaning.
- Can be used as a mouthwash.
- Is a wonderful hair rinse. Makes your hair shine and improves color as well.
- Best disinfectant for baby toys, because there are no chemicals in it!

Storing Acid Water
Storing acidic water is much easier than storing alkaline water. You can store it in an open bucket for weeks, and there will be no reduction of pH! You can even boil it, although boiling acidic water isn't necessary because it already is free of germs completely. I usually will use colorful spray-bottles for storing acid water, because they're handy to just pick up and use any time [and they look nice]. I wouldn't particularly suggest storing acidic water in a metal container, because it could rust [and acidic water is more oxidizing than regular water].
Water Ionizer Electrode Plate Basics: Bigger is not Better Many people automatically think that 9 or 11-plate water ionizers [or even 13] would naturally be better than 5 or 7-plate water ionizers. This is absolutely NOT the case. The perception of "bigger is better" has been proven to be untrue in electronics over and over. You [...]
What is Structured Water? Structured water is the kind of water found in living plants and animals. It is water molecules lined-up in an orderly fashion. This type of orderly water can enter cells easier and better hydrate them. It can reject toxins and disease, and it has a much higher potential energy than regular water. Structured [...]
I’ve tested the Athena and the Enagic over and over throughout the years, and without a doubt I can confidently say that the Athena is better than the Enagic. Why? How is this even possible? I’ll explain all of the reasons later in this post, but first take a look at my latest testing. I [...]
I’d like to take a few minutes to go over how easy the Nexus Undersink Water Ionizer is to install and demonstrate how awesomely it ionizes at the same time.Just Look at How Easy the Nexus Undersink Water Ionizer Installation Is! If you plan to install the Nexus Undersink Water Ionizer you should definitely watch this video. It [...]
I really make it my business to test and compare every water ionizer: expensive, inexpensive & cheap water ionizers, alike. There are some expensive water ionizers that I absolutely don’t recommend, such as Life Water Ionizers. There are mid-priced and cheap water ionizers as well that I don’t recommend. Then again there are many brands [...]
Are Ionizing Filters [Mineral-Based] Better than Electric Water Ionizer Systems?There are two types of systems which will ionize water. One is electric, a water ionizer machine, which involves electrolysis of water. The other is an ionizing filter or filters and ionizes the water using minerals [mainly magnesium, tourmaline, zeolite, etc.] and usually some sort of [...]
A History of Alkaline Ionized WaterAs part of understanding water ionizers it's helpful to know a little of its history. Many accounts of alkaline water benefits start in Japan in the Twentieth Century. There is some evidence, however, that an understanding and use of alkaline ionized water started much earlier than this.It is said that religious [...]
Baking soda [sodium bi-carbonate] is alkaline. Should people consume baking soda as an alternative to alkaline ionized water to buffer the pH balance in their cells? In one word “NO”, baking soda is NOT even remotely acceptable for human consumption, let alone using it as an alternative to alkaline ionized water. It is true, it [...]
Alkaline Ionized Water & Immune System Health in People The benefits of alkaline ionized water to the immune system are profound! I have personally experienced living without illness for about 20 years [as long as I’ve been drinking ionized water]. Research in Korea and Japan shows that the immune system is benefited by drinking alkaline ionized water. Even [...]
