Water Water everwhere

Recommended Posts

Ive heard you could use fresh mint by putting mint leaves in water bottle they say it absorbs toxins I'm sure its not 100 percent but in a pinch may be something to think about. me the only 100 percent is boiling but that's not possible all the time I like the link you posted Awake because any filtering helps could be the defiance in having a little tummy ache and a BIG tummy ache

when shtf diarrhea will be a major cuase of death. MOST people cant even figure out how to poo in woods the without contaminating everything afterwards. Your water has to be clean or your ripe for the grim reaper.

Family Health News, Miami, FL has a food grade peroxide that can be used as a water purifier also. It has several uses actually. They do have a book (about like a workbook) on the product, solution mixes, etc. It has a long shelf life so may be a benefit to preppers. I'll see if I can find a link online but I got mine from a health food store, who also had the work book free of charge.

I hate that every source I read has a different water to bleach ratio. Hell this one says 10 teaspoons per quart 1 teaspoon per gallon so I don't think I'll be replacing my current water info.

 

Look at the picture NOT THE WORDS! The 10 teaspoons should be at the bottom. Reverse the words to match the picture. If you print it - great idea there, Snake - pen and ink the change or print the page twice and cut and paste the words right.

yep they got the first and last on the chart turned around

Not just first and last, Snake. The pictures are correct. ALL the words are inverted start with 3 drops, then 12, then the teaspoon then 10 teaspoons.

 

they labeled bottom to top instead of top to bottom.

You're right. I've done extensive research on it and it ranges from 4 to 40 drops, depending on who is saying it. However, that's probably because many organizations are in the "better safe than sorry" camp. In actuality it depends on how dirty the water is and how fresh the Clorox is as you are looking to have a residual chlorine concentration.

 

Same is true about boiling water. Its a time/temperature thing and actually your water is purified once the first bubble breaks the surface.
