How to make the best lemon water
This might seem super obvious but nevertheless, here’s our recipe to make lemon water:
1. Squeeze 2 large lemons into a bowl.
2. Pour the juice into your Evachill bottle.
3. Dilute the lemon juice by pouring in 600ml of boiling water.
4. Fill the rest of the bottle up with cold water.
5. Enjoy your lemon water all day as it’ll stay hot for 12 hours in your Evachill bottle.
Top tip: You can sweeten the lemon taste by adding a teaspoon of honey.
How to prevent teeth damage from lemon water
Since lemons contain citric acid they can cause damage to your teeth enamel over time. Erosion to your teeth enamel causes them to appear yellow and hollowed, and can make them super sensitive to hot and cold food.
Dr Sarah Solomon gives these tips to help prevent damage to your teeth when drinking lemon water:
1. Dilute the lemon juice with at least 8 ounces of water. This will lessen the acidity.
2. Drink lemon water through a straw so it doesn't touch your teeth.
3. Rince your mouth of with water straight after drinking lemon water.
4. Chew sugar-free chewing gum straight after drinking lemon water. This will produce more saliva and neutralise the acidity in your mouth.
5. Wait for 1 hour before brushing your teeth. Use a soft toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste to help strengthen your teeth. Since acid softens the enamel, avoid aggressive brushing to prevent any erosion.
So, when life give you lemons make lemon water!
