    I used boiled kettle water and kept it in a filtered jug so it was always handy.

    Sorry, i don't mean to thread crash but this thread reminded me of a question i've had for ages - Is it ok to use bottled/mineral/spring water for bottles. I think i've seen hospitals use distilled water for bottles ? but could be wrong. Advice would be appreciated TIA

    Boiled water is best, but in an emergency bottled is better than tap, although the recommendation is still to boil it.

    Well distilled water is probably better than boiled water, but it's different to spring water. Boiled water is more than ok to use, and would be cheaper than buying distilled water. Water boiled in a kettle is fine, but I'd store it in a jug not the kettle.

    As long as you let the kettle boil until it turns itself off, or to a rolling boil if it doesn't turn itself off, then it's fine.

    We boil the kettle when we wash the bottles and then measure the freshly boiled water into bottles. Allow to cool then pop in the fridge.

    Kettle boiled water is fine.
    Once it reaches boiling completely the time it boils for wont make much difference.
    I would stick to kettle boiled and not spring/bottled water but that's just me speaking as someone from the water industry.
