I'm trying to buy distilled water (not deionised). It's not for a car battery or iron etc, so must be distilled water, but I don't seem to be able to get it anywhere. I know that you can buy it online, but the delivery charges seem to be high. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Lots of window cleaning stores around the country that sell water for the window cleaners. The pure water. It's reverse osmosis water which is the same as distilled water. You can buy it from there very cheep

Why not make it up yourself at home? It's a fairly basic scientific process to do.
Looking on other forum sites apart from buying online where the delivery charges are expensive others suggest Independant chemists that use a supplier called sigma pharmaceuticals as the well known high street chemists use the same few suppliers that do not supply distilled water.
Alternatively use the water from a condensing tumble dryer.
I think reverse osmosis water can also be bought from aquatic stores. Not sure if it is the same as distilled water though.

He probably can't be bothered or doesn't have the time
My dessicant dehumidifier collects lots of water from air which is pure water.
I'd be very surprised if your required need for distilled water instead of deionised water is necessary. They are both very pure forms of water and whilst there are differences between them, the differences only become relevant in technical applications such as chemistry and pharmaceuticals. If I may inquire, what do you need specifically distilled water for?
Do note, all the people talking about reverse osmosis water, this is deionised water and not distilled water.
Supermarkets sell it.
Do you have a tobacconist/cigar shop local to you? They might sell it for use in humidors

It's to make magnesium oil.
Bunzl Cleaning and Hygiene can supply you with this, it comes in 5litre containers and should be reasonably priced, they have branches all over the country.

Thanks, I'll give them a call later as they don't seem to have distilled water on their website.

I have recently made some magnesium oil but used tap water. From my research you only need the distilled water to removed impurities and i figured that there isn't anything in tap water that could harm me. The magnesium ion has spread bonded with chlorine (assuming you're using magnesium chloride) so couldn't be affected by other minerals in the water. It does feel like an oil so it must right. As for its effectiveness I can't comment as I've been putting on my autistic son to help him get to sleep (when I remember). Was originally intended for my husband who seemed to be showing magnesium deficiency symptoms but I got him some magnesium biglycinate tablets instead which seem to be working. Hth.
Boots but you need to ask at pharmacy within.

Thank you
It's worth contacting any local people doing medical grade cleaning.
Think dentists, doctors or anyone using medical grade tools as they have to go into an autoclave to be cleaned and most use distilled water in them.
As they do a lot of cleaning they will either have a machine to make distilled water or buy it in in bulk (not sure why you would as the machines are cheap enough).
Cigar stores sell it for using in humidors (it ain't cheap though)
I'd never heard of magnesium oil, is it for magnesium deficiency?

this article is very interesting http://growyouthful.com/remedy/magnesium-oil.php

It's allegedly good for a number of conditions including muscle pain & anxiety. Reading all the reviews I definitely think it's worth trying, as I take a lot of pain relief for fibromyalgia which I don't like doing.

No, no it's not.
It's grey water, you can use it for some things, but it's not suitable for this use.

You will be fine to use any water you can get your hands on: tap, distilled or deionised. Having just looked into the intended use and the intended interaction you won't have any problems with side reactions from impurities in your water. If you wish to use pure water, such as distilled or deionised, for your magnesium oil spray, it will be unnecessary but either of them will be fine.

Thanks, I just wanted to make sure that the magnesium flakes weren't wasted as I'd read that the chlorine in water could stop it working correctly.

Whilst there will be a minor effect with the chlorine in the tap water, the chlorine in the tap water is at a low enough concentration compared to the amount of magnesium chloride that you will add that this effect will be mitigated. If you have a brita water filter, this removes the vast majority of the chlorine in the tap water so you can use this filtered water instead.
After calling various chemists, cleaning suppliers, car shops etc I suddenly thought of calling the local tattoo parlour......BINGO.....they have their own water distiller & said that if I take a container & give them a couple of hours notice they'll make some for me

Are you still doing the Magnesium oil spray on your skin ? I am going to try it :-)
