I'm not a chemist, so I can't answer for certain, but various locations differ with the degree of chemicals and calcium, etc. that is in the tap/drinking water. I would think that distilled water is used to make sure that you aren't coating your stamps with anything that would cause hardening...like the hard water stains around my drains that require lime-away to remove. That is my thoughts on why they recommend distilled water (which is pure of any chemicals like lime/calcium/salts).
