But...but...it's not real mineral water if it doesn't come with a shiny label telling us which remote mountain in which ancient rainforest it was extracted from underneath in an environmentally and ethically sustainable way!

So, print a label as well

That's OK. It's not really "cloning" either…

Topo Chico is the best mineral water on the planet. It costs like 70¢ a bottle at your local Mexican grocer.

I was pointing out how to clone mineral water before it was cool.

Austin, TX tap water carbonated at about 40 PSI is a dead match for Topo Chico, which is lucky as I have a 6 liter a day habit.

Of course, if you're not using bottled water, your clones are also going to have whatever is added to your city's tap water. And if you are using bottle water, you're probably not saving all that much money.
