I said that the humidifier water is NOT pasteurized as is the case of "real" distilled water, which is generally done with heating to the point of vaporization. By the way, you certainly do not have to exceed liquid phase temperatures in order to pasteurize. Generally 72 degrees (C) for 15 seconds is all it takes. -- -Fred W Toys for sale, Hey get your toys here: <http://users.adelphia.net/~fredwills/>
