"In this project, the process of solar desalination and boiling desalination was used to see if salt, sugar and magnesium could be taken out of water and which way is the most efficient. The purpose of this study was to see if solar desalination is the most efficient way to remove salt, sugar and magnesium from water or if there is a better way. Water testing strips were also used to see if chemicals and minerals were in the water before and after the desalination process. In conclusion, the boiling desalination method worked the most efficiently and both tests took the salt, sugar, and magnesium out of each solution. "
