Growing up, the thing I loved the most about visiting my grandmother was getting to play with her SodaStream. Oh it was magic how it could turn my water fizzy! Sometimes I was allowed to add a splash of lime cordial as well. It was sooo exciting!
Now, as an adult with two teenagers I can see why, with four kids, she thought the Sodastream was the perfect solution. It turns tap water into sparkling minteral water in seconds and there is no endless bottles of soda water or soft drink to keep buying (and running out of when hoards of teenagers are in your house!) Basically if you have running water you have an endless supply of sparking water.
I love it because I’m not that great at drinking a lot of water (or of anything) so making the water sparkling gives it a bit more appeal. It’s especially refreshing on hot days. (Oh and sometimes I still add some lime cordial to it!)
The kids love it because it’s endless drinks. There is a massive range of different flavours that you can buy. They cost around $6.50 each and make a whole lot of litres so it’s much more economical than buying soft drinks.
So how does it work?
Your SodaStream comes with a gas cylinder- it makes around 60 litres of carbonated water before you need to change it. A new cylinder costs you around $50 but if you take your old one back to be refilled then you only pay $20. This means it’s saving on the landfill from gas cylinders as well as plastic bottles.
You also get refillable plastic bottles. You fill these with water and keep them in the fridge. Then, when you want to make yourself a drink you just fizz the water and then add the flavour, if that’s what you want.
Did you know that one SodaStream BPA free PET carbonating bottle saves the average household 2,190 bottles from being landfilled or ending up in our parks and beaches, over its 3 year lifespan? That’s a massive difference you are making to the environment.
NOTE that you must add the flavour AFTER you fizz because otherwise it will clog up your machine.
Your SodaStream Power now comes with any easy way to decide how bubbly you want your water too- just choose the setting you like the most!
