Just four simple steps, identical for both KURO-Bō Sticks and Kōins, will transform your toxin-trapped tap water into pure, toxin-free, pH balanced, mineral-rich water – described by one little fan as ‘loving water’!
STEP 1: Remove KURO-Bō Stick or Kōins from the compostable corn starch bag. Boil in a shallow pan of tap water for 10 minutes. Allow to cool.
- Keep the Activation Schedule aside – but recycle the packaging
STEP 2: Fill your container or bottle with up to 3 litres of tap water for Sticks, and up to 1 litre for Kōins. Add the cooled KURO-Bō Charcoal to the water.
- Whilst the natural purifying process begins immediately, wait 6 – 8 hours (Sticks) or 2-3 hours (Kōins) for the best results
- More than 3 litres? Simply add one KURO-Bō Stick for every 3 litres
- There is no need to remove the Stick or Kōins through the month; all you need to do is top up the water!
- For water-dispensing fridges, KURO-Bō Sticks in the tank will give you purified water on tap!
STEP 3: Reactivating, Repurpose & Repurchase
- After 1 month of daily use, boil your KURO-Bō Stick or Kōins for 10 minutes, allow to cool, and pop straight back into your water container
- After the 2nd month, reactivate your KURO-Bō and reuse as before.
- At this stage, repurchase KURO-Bō Sticks online or in-store so you don’t run out!
- After 3 months, remove your KURO-Bō Sticks and reinvent them!
