In brief: Do not use tap water

is most important as it's not the cleanest water around.
Normal saline is the best. 2nd best is distilled water.Spring and filtered are not as good but better than tap water.Tap is the dirtiest & has residue from pills, pesticides, cars, chlorine, fluoride & some bacteria/spores.So if yours is the type that you can sleep with safely, that is an option.If they are disposable, may need to toss them.
