Made from natural clay, its porous nature keeps the water naturally cool all day. These water bottles filter the impurities, and help keep the water cool, fresh and clean enough to drink. It even has health benefits, as it boosts the metabolism, prevents sun strokes, and can be medicinal for those suffering from cold and cough.
Benefits of Clay water bottle:
How to Clean:
Wash the bottle with a soft bristle brush or nonmetallic scrubbing pad. Do not use abrasive scouring powders because they will clog the pores and make the bottle useless.
Salt or ash can be used as a non-toxic alternative to chemical cleaners.
Natural Water Cooler
The pot is made of Natural Terracotta Clay and The clay is porous. So due to minor pores in the clay, the water inside the clay pot stays cool due to the evaporation process. Due to this, the heat of the water inside the pot is lost, which lowers the temperature of the water. This is how we get cool water from the earthen pot which is just at the right temperature during any season throughout the year.
The water stored inside the pot percolates into the pores and as a result, it oozes out of the pot in the form of droplets. These droplets absorb the heat of the water stored and resulting in the cooling of water. While many times the water accumulates at the bottom and it is a natural phenomenon.
Porosity Level of Pots
The Porosity Level of each and every pot is different from each other. The pots with the same design, same shape, same size, same batch have different porosity levels. i.e. pots with higher porosity levels ooze a higher amount of water compared to the ones with lower porosity level. As porosity level is totally natural and not in the human hands, It can not be controlled. But the oozing of water signifies the pot to be non-colored.
The reasoning for white porous:
It's because the clay material that these pots are made from is porous and can actually breathe. It allows the natural salt and minerals from our water, to seep through to the outside causing a white powdery build-up on the outsides of the pot. This residue is not harmful and it can easily be removed.
