Distilled water is water that has been turned into steam and then cooled back into liquid form. This process removes any impurities that were present in the water, such as minerals, bacteria, and other contaminants.
Filtered water, on the other hand, has been passed through a filter to remove impurities. Filters can be made of various materials, such as activated carbon or ceramic, and they are designed to remove specific contaminants from the water.
The main difference between distilled and filtered water is the method used to purify the water. Distillation involves boiling the water and condensing the steam, while filtering uses a physical barrier to remove impurities.
Both methods can effectively purify water, but distilled water is generally considered to be purer than filtered water.
