A Small Homemade Solar Still
We all know the importance of clean and pure water for consumption, hygene and cooking.  That water must be free of harmful microbs and harmful bacteria.   We all know that boiling water is one way of purifying it for consumption as well as for hygene.  Using impure water for bathing may also induce illness as a result of minor cuts and srapes a person may have on their hands or legs. I have explainwed methods of water filtering methods for cleaning and removing microbs and bacteria, although I personally also prefer to boil it also.  There is also another method, which is to destill the water.

Having the knowledge of distilling water, either by using water which may exist from a source available to you or in the even that water does not exist, a distilling method can be inployeed to accumulate iot from the soil using aither clear plastic or even glass and the sun.  It may take a little longer and require some effort, however if you do find yourself in a situation where you may not be near a river, creek or a stream, then these are very useful methonds to be aware of. 

The solar still is a simple way of distilling water, using the heat of the Sun to drive evaporation from humid soil, and ambient air to cool a the avaperating moisture and catching it into a container. The end result is water cleaner than the purest rainwater.

Instead of going into a very lingthy course here I have below placed a number of videos which should give you the general idea.  Refresh often by watching these videos.  When you are aware of the principles of distilling water, the you will be abAs long as you are knowledgeable of the principles of distilling water, then you will be able to improvise one fairly easily.
