here in N.W. Ohio there are a few billboards that have popped up advertising, powdered water.

It's called Mirage. However, no stores have it and the website for it is under construction.

Has anyone else heard of this or better yet, tried it ?

No, it is definately fake, Water is not powderable. You dry up water and all you get is a little calcium residue.

How do you re-hydrate it? Add water! Lol.

What is it supposed to be for?

The kids will be snorting lines of H2O soon, wonder what that would do...not much. Surely this has to be good, that would mean that large amounts of this stuff could be shipped, easily to places in the third world and such. Sounds good to me.

lol good point. "powdered water for you and your family! Just add water....." Thus the name 'mirage' then I suppose.

Hmmm... How do you rehydrate it? Let me guess.... with water?


Now how the hell do you powder water? Whatever powder you get from dehydrating water would be the kind of crap filters take out of your water.

Someone's playing a joke here. Powdered water .....

the website is.. www.forgetthebottle.com...

this seems to be a local thing, a local radio station was talking about it today... they think it's fake too...

but why spend all that money on the billboards ? I've seen at least 5 of them.

What is this madness?
Coming up with powdered flavoring for those little soup bowls is a good idea, but powdered water?

Stick it in your mouth and it mixes with your saliva, i guess would be the only way this could work.

I think it's local advertising, to get you talking about it. It seems to have worked


How refreshing would 'powdered' water be anyway? It wouldn't contain any water!

yeah, it's probably something like when Mt Dew started advertising for the Code Red.

there were billboards everywhere, black back ground and red letters that said CODE RED...

we didn't know what is was for until a couple of months later...

Well, this seems just.... bogus.
Powdered water. Right. That's definitely a new one!

If you hear anymore about it, please be sure to let us know. This is interesting, lol.

Its probably a way to atract people to the machine someone posted about that gets water from the moisture in the air.

Teknit,

You are very naughty.

Pure water, H2O, can't be dehydrated. As someone else said, dehydrating impure water, like spring water, might leave you with a dusting of trace elements.

Sounds like a joke, or an advertising stunt leading up to something else.
