Calcium Hypochlorite
For granular calcium hypochlorite, 1oz = 50ml = 10.1 teaspoons
To treat clear raw water with 65-70% calcium hypochlorite there are a couple of ways to do it. If you want to directly
treat the water with calcium hypochlorite use the following:
1 Gallon: add one grain, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.
55 Gallons: add 1/8 teaspoon for a 5ppm solution.
400 Gallons: add 1 level teaspoon for a 5ppm solution.
To make a 5% chlorine solution to be able to use the drop method for disinfecting water, add and dissolve add
teaspoon of 65-70% calcium hypochlorite to cup of water. This will decay at the same rate of purchased 5.25%
bleach so dont make more than you will use in a fairly short time.
Calcium Hypochlorite 2
Add and dissolve one heaping teaspoon of high-test granular calcium hypochlorite (HTH) (approximately 1/4
ounce) for each two gallons of water. The mixture will produce a chlorine solution of approximately 500 mg/L, since
the calcium hypochlorite has an available chlorine equal to 70 percent of its weight.
To disinfect water, add the chlorine solution in the ratio of one part of chlorine solution to each 100 parts of water to
be treated. This is roughly equal to adding 1 pint (16 oz.) of stock chlorine to each 12.5 gallons of water to be
disinfected. To remove any objectionable chlorine odor, aerate the water as described above.

Bleach: Ordinary household bleach (such as Clorox) in the US contains Available Chlorine Drops per Quart
5.25% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCL) and can be used to purify water if it
contains no other active ingredients, scents, or colorings. Bleach is far from 1% 10
an ideal source due to its bulkiness (only 5% active ingredient), and the
4-6% 2
instability over time of the chlorine content in bleach. Chlorine loss is farther
increased by agitation or exposure to air. One source claims chlorine loss 7-10% 1
from a 5% solution at 10% over 6 months if stored at 70deg F. Nevertheless,
this may be the only chemical means available to purify water, and it is far
better than nothing. Normal dosage is 8 drops (0.4 ml) per gallon. Allow the treated water to sit for 30 min., and if
there isn't a slight chlorine smell, retreat. Note: USP standard medicine droppers are designed to dispense 0.045 -
0.055 ml per drop. Use of other solvents or some chemicals can change this. The dropper can be calibrated
against a graduated cylinder for greater accuracy.

The container needs to be exposed to the sun for 6 hours if the sky is bright or up to 50% cloudy. The container needs to be
exposed to the sun for 2 consecutive days if the sky is 100% cloudy. If a water temperature of at least 50C is reached, an
exposure time of 1 hour is sufficient. The most favourable region for SODIS lies between latitudes 15N/ S and 35N/ S

1/2 to 1 cup precooked baby rice cereal or 1 tablespoons of granulated sugar
2 cups of water
1/2 tsp. salt
Mix well the rice cereal (or sugar), water, and salt together until the mixture thickens but is not too thick to drink.
Give the mixture often by spoon and offer the child as much as he or she will accept (every minute if the child will
take it).
Continue giving the mixture with the goal of replacing the fluid lost: one cup lost, give a cup. Even if the child is
vomiting, the mixture can be offered in small amounts (2-1 tsp.) every few minutes or so
Banana or other non-sweetened mashed fruit can help provide potassium.
Continue feeding children when they are sick and to continue breastfeeding if the child is being breastfed.
Ashes Of A Wooden Fire
A Pan
Heat (don't burn - be carefull) the fat in a pan. Stir in ashes. Pour the broth into some moulds/molds and let sit.
That's about it. The quantities of the ingredients depend on the quality of the fat or the ashes. Just try - won't be
that difficult.
A small plastic dishpan, about 10" x 12"
A glass or enamel 2-quart saucepan
1 can of lye (sodium hydroxide), 12 ounces
3 pounds of lard
Plastic gloves [really; use eye-protection too]
1. Pour 3 cups of very cold water (refrigerate water overnight first) into the 2-quart saucepan.
2. Slowly and carefully add the lye, a little bit at a time, stirring it with the a wooden or plastic utensil. (Use plastic
gloves for this; test them for holes first.) Do not breathe the vapor or lean over the container or have children
nearby. Above all _use no metal_. The mixture will get very hot. In olden days, a sassafras branch was used to stir,
imparting a fragrance and insect deterrent for mosquitoes, lice, fleas and ticks.
3. Let cool at least one hour in a safe place. Meanwhile, the unwrapped lard should be warming up to room
temperature in the plastic dishpan.
4. Slowly and carefully, pour the lye solution into the dishpan with the lard. The lard will melt. Mix thoroughly, at
least 15 minutes, until it looks like thick pudding.
5. Let it set until the next morning, then cut it into bars. It will get harder after a few days. Then package.
If you wish to make soap based on olive oil, use about 48 ounces. It may need to harden for a week.
