  • Purification of Water

    Purification of Water Domestic: Distillation - In the process of distillation water is heated and evaporation takes place‚ whereby water changes back to water when cooled; this process is called condensation. The condensed water is the purest form of water‚ free from microbes‚ and impurities. Boiling - Boiling is the best and simplest method to purify water. After straining the water twice through clean muslin cloth‚ it is boiled for ten minutes lo kill the microbes present in it and also remove
