Freeze-Dried Water (Can It Be Done?)

Storing water long-term is a crucial part of emergency preparedness. The CDC recommends storing a gallon of water per person for three days. But when you have a large family like ours, that can quickly take up a lot of space! So my solution is to freeze-dry water to reduce the shelf space and make it more practical!

Ok, ok, all joking aside. Freeze-drying water doesn’t work. However, it is recommended to have water on hand in case of an emergency. If you’d like to learn more about how to store water long-term, check out that post.

Then, get ready to have a good laugh as I walk you through, step-by-step, how to freeze dry water in this video!
