Capillary Filtration

This method of water filtration is very easy, gives good results, can be done by anyone but is time consuming. 

You also will have to SODIS the filtered water afterwards, but if you expose the water to UV light during the filtration process your water will be ready to drink in no time!

Cut a thin stripe of fabric and let one end hang into the dirty water and the other end in the receiving container. The receiving container must be a bit lower than the "dirty one": The fabric will soak up the water which then will drip into the receiving container: FILTERED...or rather: Containing less visible particles than before.

On the pictures I used a stripe cut out from the bottom hem of an old the T-shirt was still good to wear (at least it protected my skin from cold and UV)

After two hours...
