We're often surprised by how many times we see this question posted online. Unfortunately, removing fluoride from your tap water is not that easy. That's because boiling water only increases the concentration of fluoride. When water temperature hits its boiling point (212 degrees Fahrenheit), water vapor escapes and leaves behind all dissolved solids and minerals. Thus actually increasing the amount of fluoride per volume of water.

can you remove fluoride by boiling water

The short answer: No, you cannot remove fluoride from your tap water by boiling it. 

Think about it this way: Have you ever accidentally left a soup on the stovetop for too long, only to return to an inedible and thickened mess? In this situation, the only thing that escaped your soup was its water content. All the salts, dissolved solids, vegetables, chicken, and spices simply got left behind. This analogy can be applied to thinking about how fluoride remains in a pot of boiled water.

So what's the easiest way to remove fluoride from your tap water? 

The best way is to use a well tested and proven filter pitcher! Sure, you could use a reverse osmosis system, but those things can cost $300!
