I have rather a lot of partially flat liters, and wonder if I could use it as a drink for my house plants. Will purified carbonated water harm plants?


Depends on whether, and how much, alkali salts have been added - Schweppes Club soda has sodium chloride, sodium bicarbonate and potassium sulfate added to it. I'd use it on the garden instead, unless you want to do a trial on a couple of plants and see what the results are.

  • Agreed. If the only ingredient in the ingredients list is "carbonated water" then you should be just fine. – TeresaMcgH Jul 8 '14 at 17:56
  • I'll probably try it on an aloe and see what happens. – J. Musser Jul 8 '14 at 22:11
  • Cool question...! Never even thought about this. – stormy Jul 9 '14 at 1:56
