Detox Water Tips

  • You can prolong the life of your infused water by removing the fruit after 4-12 hours of infusing. Your detox water can last up to 3 days in the fridge once the fruit is removed.
  • Refill your pitcher or bottle when it’s half empty to preserve the infusion flavor. This prevents having to wait 1-2 hours for the water to infuse if it were to be refilled when empty.
  • Make water infusion even easier by pre-making infused ice cubes. Freeze leftover fruits, vegetables, herbs, and water in an ice cube tray to add to your water at any time.
  • Don’t waste the fruit! Feel free to eat the fruit once you run out of water.
