Testing Water for Iron Content

“Give me silence, water, hope
Give me struggle, iron, volcanoes.”
 – Ode to Silence: Pablo Neruda


Samples of water from four different sources tested for iron content. From left to right: tap water, water from a garden water butt, sea water, bottled English mineral water.

The test results tell me there is little iron in any of the samples. The sample richest in iron is the sea water.

Good to know for eco-printing and natural dyeing.

I’m thinking how iron is silent until struck. We all know what that means.
