I've been mixing my own e-liquid for the longest time, and have always used the purest vodka I could find to cut the vg with. But using alcohol really screws with my throat - always itchy, always have to eat candy or drink coffee to keep from coughing, always dry, etc - and I notice a huge difference when vaping e-liquid that's not cut with alcohol. Now, I know that PG/VG work to dehydrate your throat and such but when I don't use alcohol, the problem isn't anywhere near as severe. The problem with not using alcohol though is that my e-liquid is far too thick. I prefer vg over pg so not using vg isn't an option.
Anyway, on to my question... I know you can use distilled water to cut your e-liquid with, but I've no idea where to get it where I live; so I was wondering if I could substitute distilled water for bottled water (like aquafina and such)?
