Spare Charcoal for Eau Good Drinking Bottle

Especially cut for the size of the eau good drinking bottles by Black + Blum, there are suitable charcoal sticks in here. With it you will always have clean drinking water – everywhere.

The history of the Binchotan-active charcoal?
Its origin isn't specifically provable, but the presumption says that one form of the Binchotan-active charcoal (sometimes called "white charcoal") was discovered by a Japanese monk and trained named Kukai 1,200 years ago. During the Japanese Edo-time (17th century), it became known by a man named Binchuya Chozaemon.

How is Binchotan-active charcoal produced?
First of all, sustainably treated cut-wood is lied in a pile and left alone a while at low temperatures; then, at the end of the process, the oven temperature is raised to about 1,000 °C so that the wood becomes glowingly red. Then the charcoal is taken out and covered with a special powder consisting of earth, sand and ashes, so that the surface of the charcoal becomes whiter (therefrom the name "white charcoal"). The fast temperature-elevation, followed by a fast temperature-decrease, burns the bark and leaves a flat, hard surface. If one beats it, a clear metallic sound comes out.

How does the coal work?
The Binchotan-active charcoal has an indescribable porous surface with small pores that are directed to all directions. Only 1 gram has a surface of more than 500 m² (about one-tenth part of a football-court). It is also known as active charcoal since the ions of the pollutants are absorbed by the surface of the carbon. The active charcoal has also the quality of setting free minerals such as calcium, iron and magnesium inside of water, this is healthy and keeps water clean.

How long is it durable?
If your Binchotan-active coal is used with our eau good-bottle and filled once a day, it will be durable about three months. Then you can renew it by placing it during 10 minutes in boiling water and drying it in the sun afterwards. A renewing should remain usable for about another three months.

What other usages has the Binchotan-active charcoal?
If your Binchotan-active charcoal has completely been used as water-filter, there are many other possibilities of using it afterwards. If you crumble it and put it in your flower-pots, you will add useful minerals to your plants. Because of their porous surface, it can also be used as deodorant, absorbing unpleasant scents in cat litter, laundry-baskets, diapers' container or shoes. Binchotan is also a useful humidity-absorber in wardrobes.

Binchotan also has healthy qualities: it does not only protect from "dangerous" electro-magnetic waves of computer-screens, but also creates negative-ions. This means that it reduces air-humidity into fine particles that change to negative ions in a natural way by the continuous sending of infrared-beams by the charcoal.

Use and care
Only use tap water combined with Binchotan-active charcoal.

Your Binchotan-active charcoal is already cleaned and ready to be used. Do not wash it with solvents or soap. Please don't wash it with aromatic tonics or juices. Please take the charcoal out of the bottle it is in before cleaning it. The impurities absorbed by the Binchotan-active charcoal are removed by rinsing it with boiling water. Please do not drink water which has been in contact with the Binchotan-active charcoal during more than 48 hours.
Sometimes you might find small particles / fragments of the active charcoal in the water, but that isn't a reason to worry; to swallow then isn't dangerous (active charcoal tablets are medicines that are used for treatments of diarrhoea, digestive disturbs or winds).

Beautiful and tasty

I'm a big fan of the matching bottle of coal. Normally I don't like tap water but it tastes really good. The only disadvantage: the coal is quite expensive.

Together with the matching bottle of the same manufacturer you get with this charcoal a very recommendable duo. The coal can actually be reprocessed after three months of use and there is no difference to the new coal.

Our water is very hard and with the carbon filter it tastes pleasantly soft. However, charcoal must work for a few hours before you can taste the difference between filtered and normal tap water.

Since we filter our tap water with Binchotan activated carbon, we no longer buy mineral water. The filtered water tastes really good and pleasantly soft. The taste test also convinces every skeptic. Unrestricted purchase recommendation from me!

In the flood-plagued Passau this acquisition made quite sense. Just leave the water to stand and the charcoal will remove the chlorine taste...

The activated carbon makes the water softer, tastes better and also looks very decorative in the water jug. This is already our second that we are using now and will not be the last. :-)

I ordered the spare charcoal with the bottle. After use it can be used as an odour filter in shoes or as a flower fertilizer. Perfect! Perfect!

With us the water is very hard and due to the activated carbon it is now noticeably softer. There is also no annoying lime edge in the glass carafe (if water remains longer in the carafe) as with glass carafes with water without activated carbon.

The activated carbon does not only look good in a glass carafe, but it also seems to make a real difference. Anyway, the water tastes better after filtering. And you don't have to carry heavy returnable glass bottles. Therefore full points!

Tap water with Binchotan doesn't taste any better to me than without it, but that may be because the tap water for the dams in my place of residence is soft and generally tastes good. I can't say anything about the health-promoting properties.
