Sometimes super market will have bottled RO water. If not distilled is fine in a pinch

I get my water from the water machine inside Krogers "Glaicier" 0 TDS RO water and it is less expensive then the bottled water.

distilled is fine, it is probably cleaner then RO. distilled water is the collection of water vapor, as when water evaporates it leaves behind all its impurities
