One way to solve this problem is to run water through a filter, trapping the unwanted things. Another way is to let the water evaporate, leaving the impurities behind. Then we can condense the pure water vapor by cooling it back into crystal clear water. This is called distilled water. Body Buddy Water sneaks in and out of your body every day, all the time, whether you know it or not. It soaks right into your skin when you get wet, and you even inhale it as vapor when you breathe! When you squeeze an orange and drink the juice, it mostly consists of water that the orange tree drank from the ground.

The water molecules boil, bumping each other wildly into thin air. Condensing Cold Cooler temperature slows them down again and the molecules condense to a liquid— as rain, dew, or drops on the side of your cold glass. This is the mist you might see early in the morning either when cool air hits warmer air near the ground, or warm air hits cooler air close to the ground, depending on the season. The tiny droplets are quickly burned off when the sun warms them and they evaporate. The steamy rainforest cycles lots of water, round and round beneath its canopy, so there’s lots of condensed water vapor in the air, appearing as mist.

When nearly motionless, their form changes from a fluid to a solid—ice or snow. Snow appears when water vapor freezes in mid-air. But if water vapor condenses into ice crystals when touching a very cold surface, like a windshield on a winter morning, we see frost.
