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].
I've owned a water ionizer for over 20 years! After retiring from being a teacher/principal in 2007 I have been at the forefront of selling water ionizers as well. I have a very long list of uses for a water ionizer, and here are my top 30 water ionizer uses. My favorite use for a [...]
If you own or plan to own a water ionizer you need to know a little about water ionizer care. This post gives some great tips for how to transport a water ionizer. Without fail there will be a time to either take your water ionizer with you on a trip or if you move …or [...]
When you have a water ionizer you may find that you occasionally need to clean hard water calcium off of your glasses, bottles and pitchers. The reason is that ionized water has a greater concentration of calcium than whatever is in your source water.Calcium and Your Health Calcium is a fantastically healthy, alkaline mineral. Ionizing water makes the [...]
I’m always focusing on the benefits of alkaline ionized water, which is rightfully so, but I should take a moment to share my knowledge about the benefits of pH balance in plants.Getting a PH Balance in Plants is Important Too!If florists or botanists knew the benefits of the pH balance in plants I think they would all [...]
I often get questions asking if freezing or boiling ionized water will change it. I have tested the effects of heating & cooling ionized water many times before. Basically when ionized water is exposed to the air it oxidizes, so it loses its antioxidant value. Boiling it causes it to oxidize rapidly. When this happens it decreases the [...]
Once every month or two I use this simple little trick to get the lowest acid water possible to fill up my bathroom and kitchen spray bottles. I do this strictly to get the increased germ-killing power of low acid ionized water of 2.5 pH from my water ionizer. Do not confuse using the lowest acidic [...]
At the request of a customer I made and tested some lemonade today with ionized water from my Athena water ionizer. Lemons are known to be one of those fruits that are acidic, when tested before consumption, but have an alkalizing effect on the body. The reason for this is that the ash of lemons [the residue [...]
Alkaline ionized water and acidic ionized water both offer significant beauty benefits. A water ionizer is not only the healthiest thing you can use for your body, it will also help you to be the most beautiful or attractive you can be if you know how to use it right.Beauty Tip #1: Drink lots of ionized water!Let’s [...]
I often get questions asking if heating or cooling ionized water from one of our water ionizers will change it. I have tested the effects of heating & cooling ionized water many times before, but recently have discovered the importance of protecting the ionized water from the air. Exposing ionized water to the air causes it to [...]
