    Ask the writer to explain the science.

     

    Water is normally ionized: some of the H2O dissociates into positive H+ ions and negative OH- ions. If you're worried about acidity (lots of H+ ions), just add some sodium bicarbonate to your water.

    Here's what Wickipedia says about deionized water: "Deionized water, also known as demineralized water[2] (DI water, DIW or de-ionized water), is water that has had its mineral ions removed, such as cations [positive ions] from sodium, calcium, iron, copper and anions [negative ions] such as chloride and bromide."

     

    IOW, they're not removing all the ions, just the minerals. If you're worried about the minerals, just buy distilled water, or distill your own.
