  • Turn off the heat source and let the water cool.
  • Pour the water into a clean container with a cover for storage.
How to disinfect water if you are unable to boil your water
  • If tap water is clear:
    • Use unscented bleach (bleach that does not have added scent).
    • All 1/8 teaspoon teaspoon (8 drops or about 0.75 milliliters) of unscented household liquid bleach to 1 gallon (16 cups) of water.
    • Mix well and wait 30 minutes or more before drinking.
    • Store disinfected water in clean container with a cover.
  • If tap water is cloudy:
    • Filter water using clean cloth.
    • Use unscented bleach  (bleach that does not have an added scent).
    • Add 1/4 teaspoon (16 drops or 1.5 milliliters) of unscented household liquid bleach to 1 gallon (16 cups) of water.

Remember that containers may need to be sanitized before using them to store safe water.

  • To sanitize containers:
    • Use unscented bleach (bleach that does not have an added scent).
    • Make a sanitizing solution by mixing 1 teaspoon (5 milliliters) of unscented household liquid bleach in 1 quart (32 ounces, 4 cups, or about 1 liter) of water.
    • Pour this sanitizing solution into a clean storage container and shake well, making sure that the solution coats the entire inside of the container.
    • Let the clean storage container sit at least 30 seconds, and then pour the solution out of the container.
    • Let empty container air dry OR rinse it with clean water that has already been made safe, if available.
