What is the best way to get drinking water in countries that don’t have it?

    I assume your question is refering to purifying tab work in countries where the tap water is not considered potable (drinkable). The best and cheapest way is to boil the water for a few minutes to kill any bacteria and then it should be safe to drink.  If you’re in the woods hiking you may want to run the water through a bandana or another piece of clothe. If you don’t foresee having access to fire or a stove you can buy iodine drops or tablets. With these you just put them in the water shake it up and let it sit for twenty minutes to half an hour and the water show then be safe to drink. You can also buy chlorine purifiers put they have an unpleasant taste and iodine is a nutrient your body actually needs anyways.
