Today we’re using filters for something other
than water and Instagram. Let’s talk about that.( music playing )Good mythical morning! We’ve got an action packed show
for you today. We’re gonna be ranting
about the hassles of travel while sucking on helium. And we’re gonna be sampling
a bunch of discontinued candies, including one
that is 50 years old. Oh, but first we’re going
into experiment mode with water filter pitchers. Yes, they’re made for water, but what happens if we put
other liquids through them. It’s time for… That’s right.
We’re gonna push water filters
past their limit by sending non-water substances
through them and noting, for science and posterity,
what happens. In case you’re curious, we’re going to be using
the ZeroWater pitcher, not a sponsor, because the mythical crew
did some tests, and it showed
that that was the best one to use for what we’re going
to put through it. Let’s keep the situation fluid and start filtering. If you’re a avid listener
to our podcast Ear Biscuits, comes out every week, then you know
that I am an avid
family man RV-er. Yeah, I like to load up
my family– You’ve done it one time. I have plans to take my family
on an RV to Mountain Dew. – Oh. Oh, yeah.
– It’s beautiful
this time of year. I wanna bottle our
Mountain Dew at the source. And now we’re gonna find out if once I bring it back
for the kids, what happens once we filter it,
and get out all the– I don’t know if the Mountain
is gonna come out or the Dew. I think the Mountain’s gonna
stay in the filter and the Dew’s
gonna come out in the wash. ( imitates phone ring ) It’s ringing
like a cellular telephone. ( rings ) All right,
let’s see what happens. Okay. It looks blue, but that’s
just the color of the pitcher. It’s a teeny bit cloudy. Let’s pour it
next to the real thing. – Link: Now, there’s no fizz.
– There’s no carbonation. And there’s very little color. That’s the Dew.
That’s the Dew, bro. Bro, that’s just the Dew. Hey, it completely filtered out
all of the Mountain. And now we just have Mountain
in this filter. – We could sell
– Yes. You want a filter that’s just
got Mountain in it? – There it is.
– I’d buy that. $80. Oh, good price. Take a swig. You know
what Mountain Dew tastes like. Not as good as Mello Yello. I’m gonna hold my reaction
until… I can still taste Mountain Dew. I can’t… because I tasted Mountain Dew
right beforehand. Yeah, I think– It put me in the perfect–
It put me right in the– I thought it was freakin’
just straight up water. Next to Mountain Dew you
probably thought that. I was freaking out,
and I was just waiting
for you to join me. I thought we were gonna have,
like a mountaintop celebration. Something made it through. A little piece of the Mountain
made it through. You can taste a little– It actually tastes like
flat LaCroix at this point. It tastes like a lemon-lime
LaCroix. I get it. I get it.
That’s flat. That’s what I said. – Yeah.
– Yeah. So if you’re into that, flat, tepid LaCroix, then you know
what you need to do. If you love a burning sensation
in your mouth but you’re afraid
of eating fire, then ask your dentist if
Listerine is right for you. Whoa. That wasn’t as–
That wasn’t as cool – as I thought it would be.
– Accidents do happen. So let’s start filtering
some mouthwash. Just trying to do this,
and it was gonna be awesome. That was cool the second time. Okay, now, this stuff
right here– Now, it’s got a lot– This has got
some strong flavors. It’s also very difficult
to open. – There we go.
– Okay. Glug, glug, glug.
Glug, glug, glug, glug. – Okay.
– All right, it is filtered. And I am gonna predict that the alcohol part of it
did make it through because I’ve heard of people
taking cheap vodka – and then filtering it
– And filtering it. …in order to make it
better vodka, which,
according to my research, which is just reading, it makes it nominally better but not as good as top shelf. It’s 21–
This is 21.6% alcohol, so, like, 40 proof. Wow. So… but it took he green out. – It’s clear.
– ZeroWater, takes the green
out of Listerine. That’s your new campaign. You’re welcome. There’s that.
It’s pleasing to me. – Okay. Don’t drink that first.
– Now, let’s both start– We know what Listerine
tastes like. – We don’t wanna…
– It’s really strong, so… …foul up our mouths. Oh, first of all,
it smells just like Listerine. It does. It smells– Well, smell this. No, the flavor is gone. It’s just freakin’ alcohol now. I think I can sip a little bit. Well, now that all the
mouthwashy part’s gone,
yeah. gonna sip a little bit. Oh, man. I would just think
that I was drinking mouthwash. But taste that now. We need to compare
’cause I would think
that it’s unchanged, – but since this has to be
– Oh, no! ( groans )
Whoo! Whoo! If you’re in the mood
for drinking mouthwash, filter it first. They say that chicken soup
is good for the soul, but is it good for the mouth
post water-pitcher filter? Hm. Hm, only one way
to find out. You’re just gonna–
I mean, dump the noodles
and everything. I don’t wanna get it on myself. ( makes beeping noise ) – And then clunk, right there.
– Yeah, why not? The noodles
did not make it through. Nope, look at them.
They’re just– Oh, don’t cover them up.
They wanna get some air. They’re just sitting there
flat and sad. Chicken
didn’t make it through. Veggies didn’t make it through, but something made it through because it is cloudy. You gotta have a confidence. Yeah, you gotta do it–
You can’t– You see– And I wanna go in unison. You can’t
second guess yourself. Three, two, one… There you go.
That’s confidence. Nailed it. Oh, gosh. Okay. You know what?
If it’s good for the soul,
it can be good for the floor. Yeah. Wow. Okay, um… Go for it. This is like– Well,
this is chicken noodle soup. Yeah, just chicken noodle soup. This is like cheap,
chicken-free, carrot-free chicken noodle soup. I doubt the sodium– I bet you
the sodium is one of the things
that made it through. It still smells very chickeny. Mm-hm. You no likey? Linky don’t likey? It’s weird because it’s the consistency
of water. Again, it’s just an essence
of chicken noodle. It’s an essence.
I mean, it– You would think this would be
very flavorful, but it’s not, is it? No, not at all. It’s very mild. I could get
through a lot of this before I realized
something was wrong. Remember when
you would come in from P.E. and get hold of that water
fountain and just suck
the whole thing down? I could get a half gallon
of this stuff down before I was like, “Has an essence of chicken
noodle soup.” We are very excited
to announce a new product– Good Mythical beer. Here it is.
Look at that label.
Isn’t it great? Actually it’s just Budweiser
in a bottle. It says GMM on it. We not– of course we’re not
gonna sell beer. Okay, uh– But, contrary
to popular belief, we are both slightly over 21. Yep, mm-hm. It’s hard to tell. Oh, that hurt a little. All right. Now, typically,
when you pour beer, you’re supposed to–
you don’t wanna over fizz it, so you wanna, like, bank shot
it. I don’t think that’s
necessarily required in this– I know how to pour a beer! She’s filtered. I can see
a little color in there. Let’s see what it looks like in
the open. ‘Cause we know that
the alcohol’s gonna come through based on the mouthwash. Ooh, man, that’s clear. But where else
does flavor come from
in beer? You are a horrible beer pourer. No, this is how they do it
on the commercials, man.
Big head. There is none here, no froth, but it looks like
a well-hydrated person peed in a glass. This looks like an
under-hydrated person… Smells like beer. But again,
an essence of beer. Does it smell
like not as much beer? Oh, not even close.
And it doesn’t smell– it doesn’t smell like it’s got
any good flavors in it. It just kind of
just smells like… Yeah. I don’t expect this
to be good at all. Of course, I don’t know if I
expected that to be good. Yeah. That is almost nothing. It’s almost like somebody
walked into a party with a Budweiser. ( imitating drunk person )
Hey, great party. This is weaker than that. This is weaker
than great-party guy. It’s really, really subtle. But it tastes like something. Kinda like it. Better than Budweiser. Super light beer. The lightest. We’ve got the lightest beer. Come to our party. T-I-L, when people talk
about clean living, it has nothing to do
with drinking Windex. Now, we’re not
gonna drink this. We’re gonna filter it, and then
we’re just going to see if it can clean–
if it retains its cleaning power post filter. So glug, glug, glug it. It’s blue.
I mean, it looks just like
that dag-gone mouthwash, man. Okay, let’s pour it back in. Again,
we’re not drinking this. We’re actually going to test
its actual cleaning properties, see if they’ve changed at all. Get a nice precision pour
on this thing. Okay, oh… Ooh, it’s clear. The blueness is gone. That’s enough. Maybe all it’s taking out
is the color. – It says–
– It still smells really strong. Yeah, it smells like it’s still
got some cleaning properties. But we have brought in–
This is not just
a new decoration. We’re going to be cleaning
this window. We’ve got tomato paste
handprints here. So we got a couple
paper towels back here. Gonna spray her down. All right, so I have
the original Windex. Rhett has the filtered Windex. Okay. So– – Oh, man.
– Okay. I think there’s
an initial difference. Yours is really dissolving it. Look at that. There’s, like,
nastiness is running down. Spray some more over there.
I went pretty heavy. Mine is seriously
not dissolving it. – Yours is breaking it down.
– Yep. Well, mine’s breaking down a
little bit, but not to the degree
that yours is.
Now, let’s just… There’s some magic
missing in yours that’s been filtered out. Let’s wipe easy. You wiping from
the front or the back? Always wipe
from he front to the back. – Well…
– Okay… We sprayed so much. Mine should look great. There’s no doubt about that. – Doesn’t…
– Mine’s smearing quite a bit. So is mine though. I got some smearage. No, not to the degree
that mine is. Let’s come out here
and take a look, see about the difference. I’m gonna tell you right now, it looks the same. It doesn’t look any different. You’re still cleaning. Look, you’re getting
down to perfection. So the blue in Windex
is just a lie? We’ve been lied to. It could be any color. It could be any color. It could be dookie brown. It should be dookie brown
because of the deception. Windex–
“now in dookie brown.” Let’s do it. Let’s have a party where we
drink some ultra-light beers. And a little bit of hint
of chicken noodle soup water. And then we wash everything
down with the dookie brown. Oh, gosh. All right, we learned
Hopefully you did. And once again we have saved
real scientists tons of effort, like we always do on this show. You’re welcome, scientists. Stick around to watch us do
