I bought a gallon sized mason jar that I am using. I think I bought it at Walmart. Are you supposed to put it in a cabinet? I have it on my countertop, not in the sun. I have a cloth napkin covering it and it covers most of the jar. Are you supposed to filter it? I thought that stuff was part of what you are supposed to drink?

Consider drinking smaller amounts, only an ounce daily and gradually increase by an ounce per month.
