Been hearing a few folks talking about colloidal silver lately. Supposed to be effective against viruses I think. Anyway, I make my own at home all the time for horticultural purposes. So in case it gets harder to acquire in north america, thought I would post my quick method of making your own at home. It's very quick and easy, and ANYONE can do this. What you will need... -99.99% pure silver coins x 2 (I ordered mine from the Canadian mint and received them in two weeks. 99.99% pure silver $20 coins. You can cut one coin in half, or purchase two.) -9 volt battery connector (get these at radio shack or just cut one out of an old alarm clock) -9 volt battery -6 inches of speaker wire -electrical tape (or solder and shrink tubing for those anal retentives like myself) -aligator clips x 2 -Jug of distilled water -Glass mason jar -coffee filter -total dissolved solids meter (easily found in any hydroponic supply store) Directions: Cut the 9 volt battery connector out of the alarm clock. Solder the two leads coming off the 9 volt battery connector to the positive and negative speaker wires. Solder an aligator clip to the other end of each speaker wire Clip one silver coin to each alligator clip Fill the mason jar half full with distilled water - place the coins HALF submerged in the water, DO NOT touch the alligator clips to the water. Position the coins in the water on each side of the glass (they can't be touching) and hold them in place by wrapping an elastic band around the jar, over the wires. Plug in your battery, wait 24-48 hours. The electrical current passes between the two silver coins, depositing micro-particles of silver into the distilled water. Test the water with a total dissolved solids meter until you reach a concentration of 20-30ppm then unplug the battery. Note: some tds meters are not accurate below 100ppm, find a good one, or a buddy who grows their own produce ;-) Filter water through a coffee filter then dilute with 50% distilled water to get a solution of 10-15 ppm of colloidal silver.
