Sip of Purity With LifeStraw

Do you find yourself getting panic quite often when your child drinks uncleaned water? Do you prefer suppressing your thrist than to sip water at public places? Do you stress yourself imagining the possible health effects of drinking contaminated water from roadside water taps? If any of your answers to these questions is a 'Yes', your feelings are no different than mine.

I seriously cannot rely on the water taken from the untrusted water-purifiers installed at public places and even at my work place, when I run out of water in my water bottle. My debate bout quality water purification with my colleagues is endless when they try to convince me of 'drinkable' water.

I might be the most annoying mom when I constantly keep on instructing my child not to fill up his water bottle from any random places when he goes for his training sessions. I swear he ends up making same long faces every time. But not anymore...

I've been fortunate to receive a revolutionary product LifeStraw Go by Vestergaard, which is a portable, refillable water filter. This cute, ultralight (weighing just 168 gms) bottle came as a rescuer to promise me clean, drinkable water everywhere I go.
The raw material used in making of LifeStraw Go meets US Food and Drug Administration regulations and standards. Using the bottle neither requires batteries nor it is electricity-operated. It uses replaceable activated carbon capsule that reduces bad taste, chlorine and organic chemical matter up to 100 liters and also incorporates an advanced hollow fiber membrane technology (0.2 microns) that removes waterborne bacteria and protozoa up to 1,000 liters. This 2-stage filtration technology certainly brings about an award winning product for those who care for their health. The storage volume of 0.65 liters is a decent quantity for an average drink at a time for anyone.
In past few weeks, Lifestraw Go has been traveling places with me...I barely thought of dipping my LifeStraw bottle into a puddle or filling water from a public water system. Because I knew what I'm sipping ultimately is a sip of purity :) Look at my exhausted face after a 6 hours journey..
I handed over this bottle to my boy while I had been busy hosting some functions in my family recently and this time my instructions to drink water ONLY from this bottle was welcomed with a smile by this little brat.

If you too are planning to get this miraculous product for your children, just ensure guiding them to clean it after every use  to eject all remaining water trapped within the filter. You just need to unscrew the bottle cap and back-flush your LifeStraw Go by blowing a breath of air back into the mouthpiece. If the bottle need  not be used for few days, simply rinse with water, and leave the bottle uncapped to dry completely.
Now a friendly advice.. don't freeze and wash this filter in a dishwater to avoid cracking. Also refrain using it on sea water, ocean water or brackish water as the dissolved chemicals, salt, heavy metals and viruses will not be removed. But yes! if you are looking for a high capacity filter to remove viruses as well, the LifeStraw Mission and LifeStraw Family 1.0 are available to remove 99.999% of viruses.

To guarantee every sip of yours free of contamination, LifeStraw Go stops allowing water through it when the lifespan of the filter is over and indicates its the time of replacement.
The Lifestraw is easily accessible at some online portals to purchase. I'm delighted to have a trustworthy companion now that is concerned about my health. Have you used LifeStraw or any other portable water purifier? Waiting to know your experiences..
