While I'm at home it is easy to do this but when I'm travelling sometimes to a new city it is difficult to find good clean water. How do you deal with it? When flying you are not allowed to carry liquids internationally so this is one of my concerns.

This might sound crazy but is bottled spring water any good?

I believe there is another thread about this. The reason to use distilled water is to avoid mineral deposits on your device and hose. But I believe the consensus in the other post was that the occasional vacation use of bottled water is fine. There is a great water bottle/filter system that we take traveling in sketchy places. Easy to carry with you, and you can filter water from any source.

Grayl seems useful even when camping.

How do you clean up the mineral deposits on the device and hose? Sometimes it is inevitable for me to use bottled water while traveling so any tips would be useful. Thanks snuffie3456

Yes, we use it for long hikes and short backpacking trips. As for cleaning, I'm afraid I can't be of much use. I actually don't use the humidifier on my machine. Type "mineral deposits" into the search window on this forum. There are lots of great tips already out there.
