Never Forget To Refill Your Filtered Water Jug With This Clever Tip

Redditor violenciarivas shares a tip for making sure your filtered water jug is always full. I know what some of you are thinking: “Uh, why don’t you just remember to refill it?” You are the one per cent, let me tell you.

The majority of us have better things to do than sit around and refill our water jugs when we’re thirsty and have work to do, and sadly we don’t realise it’s empty until we’re parched and forced to deal with the agonising hell of water that is only kind of cold. If you fall into this category, here’s your solution:

Fill your glass with tap water before getting the jug out. Pour this into the top before filling your now empty glass with the cold delicious water from the bottom.

Especially handy for those of us whose sinks are full of dirty dishes, making a faucet-to-jug pour nearly impossible.

Of course, be careful, since if you fill the top too much you’ll spill it out everywhere when you go to pour water into your glass. Still, it’s a handy routine to get into, doesn’t feel like it takes a lot of time, and will make sure your water pitcher never goes empty again.
