What is Deionized Water?

Deionized water is a type of purified water with mineral ions (salts) removed. These mineral ions include sodium, calcium, iron, chloride, and bromide. Deionized water is created by taking conventional water and exposing it to electricilly  charged resins that attract and bind to salts, removing them from water. Because most of the impurities in water are mineral salts, deionized water is mostly pure, but it does still contain numerous bacteria and viruses, which have no charge and therefore are not attracted  to the electrified resins.
