Two things to factor into the stilling, whether it be water or other fluids....
Contaminants come in two varieties. One is a lighter molecule, that distills at lower temp. That one comes off first, so you take the first fraction of your distillate and discard or sequester it. You preserve the middle of your run for use. You discard the tailings of your run because of the heavier contaminants.
