the water from a dehumidifier is not a very good source of liquid for making a cleaner, it is taken from the air, basement moisture leaves a lot to be desired any way but the point is distilled water is recaimed from steam therefore free of the contaminates that will muck up your cleaner if it sits for any length of time. The purest cleaner is better for stamps any way. Hope this helps. (distilled water is the the vip in the mix)
