Did you know the water used in your shower/bath is full of chlorine and many other toxic chemicals? The problem is, we don’t have control over our water source, but we can reduced/remove some of the junk that’s in it! Based on many studies, people spend multi-millions each year on bottled water, for fear of consuming toxic chemicals. I think people need to be aware that we bathe in the same chemicals everyday, and it is being absorbed through our skin and also through inhalation.
I live in LA, and recently noticed a strong chlorine smell every time I got out of the shower. It never bothered me before, but now I’ve also noticed that my skin is very dry and my hair feels more rough than usual. I did a good amount of research online about shower filters, and came across really high reviews for a brand called Sprite. Believe me, I was tempted to spend over $100 for a good shower filter, but many of the fancy looking ones really lacked in performance (based on consumer reviews).
The installation is really easy, just screw off your existing shower head and screw on your new Sprite shower filter. It literally takes less than 10 minutes, and you’re ready to rock n’ roll. I just changed mine out 1 week ago, and I could immediately tell the difference. No more chlorine smell, skin is less dry, and my hair feels more soft.
It is available at Home Depot for only $35 (price may vary, depending on style/model available), and it claims to remove the following:
- Free Chlorine (Cl-)
- Combined Chlorine (Sodium Hypochlorite)
- Hydrogen Sulfide (rotten egg smell)
- Iron oxide (rust water)
- Dirt, sediment
- Plus, its pH balanced
