D                  More about Liz.  


A.   Interesting Tid Bits 

1.  First Aid:    The theory 'ice right away, don't delay' exists because when ice is applied to an injury it          
                    reduces  the pooling of blood and reduces the chances of swelling and bruising.   

                     Ice right away is especially important to head injuries because the skull is so hard and small,  
                     there's little room for swelling and little tissue for the blood to clot properly.

                     There's a good possibility that icing a head injury may stop the blood from flowing and
                      help it to clot thus reducing it bleeding out or causing a bigger clot later on.              

                     Always ice a head injury.  

                     Snow works as well.   

     2.  Whiskey for Sterilization and/or Disinfection:  

                      I find that scotch works great for disinfecting injuries.  I prefer this to the medical disinfection
                      that you buy in the drug store and stings really bad.  It must be the natural ingredients in it but
                      I think it does the same thing without the sting.  

3.  Swimming and Chlorine

Chlorine is a chemical that can destroy tooth enamel, dry out skin, hair and eyes, kill the good bacteria in your intestines (replace with yogurt or bifidus supplements) and play havoc in general on your immune system. 

People probably should not swim in chlorine more than 2 or 3 times per week in order to avoid serious long term consequences from this chemical.  

Keep the chlorine in your pool at no more than 2.5.   

4.  Scented Dryer Sheets

Scented dryer sheets are a known allergen or asthma trigger for some people.   

The Government could so easily ban these irritating products but they would rather let people cause asthma in others, then pay to treat it with our expensive free health care. 

It's the same reason that antique cars are still allowed on the gives the health community some business treating all the health aliments that their toxic emissions cause. 

5.  Protein and Sugar

Combining a protein and a sugar (including fruit because they contain natural sugars) will create amino acids which will raise cholesterol levels.   Natural sugars (fruits) should be eaten one hour BEFORE a meal to avoid this.  In fact, eating it this way, the sugars help digestion.  

Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.

 Cough repeatedly and very vigorously.

A deep breath should be taken before each cough,

and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.

A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.

Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating.

The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital

7.  Drugs vs Vitamins

    Most drug plans do not cover vitamins but hey, have all the narcotics you like. 

The oil lobbyists and the pharmaceutical lobbyists are both related in that they use propaganda rhetoric to convince people that green energies and natural alternatives don't work when in fact nothing can be further from the truth. 

8.  Components of a physical fitness program.  This is one of the most commonly asked question for people who work in the fitness industry.  The answer is: cardio, flexibility and strength training.   

9.   Alkaline VS Acid Diets:      Every thing has a PH level, including our bodies.  The goal with your body is to keep alkaline levels up and acid levels down.   A high acid diet is known to be an ideal host for the development of certain medical conditions.   Ideally, eat about 80% alkaline and 20% acid foods. 

10. Bad Bug Bites:  If you get a bad bug bite (besides a bee sting) and you develop flu like symptoms 
      right away, you have probably been bit by a diseased bug and should seek medical treatment.  Insist on
      antibiotics or something because the poison can get into your blood stream and attack all the organs
      in your body.  There are a lot of viruses being spread by bugs these days and even a bug that has
      been feeding on a dead rodent or bird or animal, can pass disease onto humans. Vitamin therapy will
      keep your immune system strong but anyone can fall ill to these diseases.  

11. Anemia:   Iron needs vary from individual to individual.  The recommended daily allowance for a healthy adult can vary depending on diet, lifestyle, what type of cook wear they use (cast iron pots), drinking water, disease.   This chart can help determine how much you need:

People with sever anemia from excessive bleeding or illness such as cancer, need a lot of iron and the maximum daily intake for a svere anemic is 325 mg elemental iron.   Keep this in mind:  there are two types of anemia, anemia of the blood and anemia of the organs.  When you first become anemic, your body will use up all the iron stores in your body first, and if they are not replenished in time, then your body will use up all of the stores in your organs.  So if you take an iron pill and go get blood work, it will look like your iron stores are fine when in fact the iron has already been depleted from your organs and the only way that they can determine that is through a biopsy which won't happen just to take your iron level.  So I'm just saying to be careful because the blood work for an anemic person may or may not be accurate.  Toxicity of excess iron is dark stools either runny or hard depending on what you took the iron with and how much you took. For best absorption, take your iron with vitamin C supplement and/or 100% juice and don't eat anything for one hour before or after.  

12. Enterovirus D68   They say that this virus can't be treated with antivirals or antibiotics so are they sure that this respiratory thing is even a virus at all?  It is possible that it is caused by fukishima nuclear disaster because radiation is now in everything that we eat, breath and drink.   They're treating it with liver destroying acetaminophen instead of the nutrients and supplements that one would take for radiation exposure.  


Author's NOTE: 

Everyone's nutritional needs are different and it may take you a while to find the right amounts and formula for you.  Experiment.  

Do not take anything that you are unsure of.  

They are many good books and websites around about the pros and cons of vitamins, minerals and herbs. 

Be careful.

You are your own 'health control board.' 


   1.  The Cell Can Tell  

   Our bodies are made of billions of cells that die off each day and need to be replaced. 

   Four things build healthy cells:  vitamins, minerals, good protein and clean healthy water. 

   Free radicals, more commonly known as cancer cells, play havoc on the good cells in your body. The goal is to keep your healthy cells on the defensive.   Feed them what they need to build healthy cells with. 

   If you have one good cell, and you feed it the right nutrition, it will divide, then you will have two cells, and they will divide and then you will have four cells that will divide into eight cells and so on. 

   And this is how the healing process happens. 

   Our internal environment and organs are lined with mucousal membrane.  This sticky stuff is very fast dividing and an area of our bodies where free radicals can multiply the easiest and fastest.  Beta Carotene is a primary antioxidant that will feed mucousal membrane and is found in dark green and orange vegetables.  

   Do everything you can nutritionally to heal and protect the cells of your body. 

   Supplementation today makes sense because we are living in a chemical and smog infested world unprecedented by mankind.  We simply need things that will help us out. 

   Vitamins A, C,  E and Co-enzyme Q10, are powerful antioxidants that can protect us from the affects of pollution.   Beta Carotene is also beneficial.  

Suggested readings by Dr. Bruce Miller  

 'A better Health Series' and 



Research estimates that 80-90% off all degenerative diseases involve free radical activity.

Cancer, heart disease, cataracts, muscular degeneration, premature aging, Parkinson's, arthritis, male infertility, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's, and autoimmune diseases.

To date, studies identify more than 60 health conditions that can be prevented or treated with antioxidant supplementation.

There is now solid evidence that vitamins are more powerful than we ever suspected.
Research is now focusing on amounts needed to help prevent chronic degenerative diseases.

Free radicals are chewed up by antioxidants.

The antioxidants are A.C.E. vitamins and beta carotene and the enzyme systems.

Free radicals can burst through cell membrane and cause cell to malfunction.

Once inside, they can even damage the D.N.A. which decreased future generation of cells and maybe cancer.

Some researchers thinks that the gradual accumulation of free radical damage over the years is responsible for aging.

The more free radical damage, the more you age.

Any time your body has an increased need for oxygen, or is stressed physically or emotionally, then free radical production increases as well.

Studies are showing that athletes have a greater need for antioxidants due to the rapid oxygen turnover.
Surgery, viral infection, anxiety, all create an increase in free radical.

Perhaps the greatest cause of free radical damage is the overwhelming number of chemicals in our environment due to auto exhaust, cigarette smoke, drugs, pesticides, fertilizers, radiation, cleaning products and the list goes on.

We are exposed to oxidant producing chemicals on levels unheard of in the history of our planet.

Without adequate protection we are in for real trouble.

The more exposure, the more trouble you are in.

You have two choices: decrease the exposure or increase antioxidant nutrients.


We know for sure that free radicals can suppress the immune system.

Rebuilding and keeping your immune system healthy is your best defense against disease.


  3.  Canada’s Health Care System

Buy tobacco, get cancer, get treated with free, high cost and dangerous chemotherapy and radiation that everyone pays for whether they like it or not.


Buy vitamins and food supplements instead of tobacco and prevent the cancer to begin with.

But the people who want to buy vitamins, can’t afford them because they have to pay taxes to treat the tobacco smokers.

If you get cancer in Canada, here are some things to know:

There are many testimonies from all over the world who will verify that they have cured the early stages of cancer with vitamin therapy.

Vitamin therapy is also known to prevent cancer in the first place. 

But vitamin therapy is not covered under the heath care act.

But if you get full blown cancer you will be freely treated with expensive and dangerous chemotherapy, radiation and drugs. 

These treatments are provided for free by all Canadian citizens who are forced to pay taxes to contribute to this ridiculous reactive program. 

North American doctors are only allowed to treat cancer with chemotherapy and radiation, they are not allowed to prescribe holistic treatments because they have to follow the status-quo so they don't get sued. 

 Holistic treatments are not recognized by the medical profession of North America because they actually work and the health care system fears loosing their grants and jobs.  Chemo and radiation is maybe okay for certain people and cancers and I don't want to dismiss it totally for people who believe it will work for them. 

Also, you should know that chemotherapy was invented to treat people who were sprayed with agent orange during the Vietnam war.  So they poison people then they treat them with high doses of electricity. In my opinion, chemo and radiation or just big nuclear microwaves. 

The chemo and radiation may kill the cancer cells but it also kills all the other healthy cells surrounding it. 

People who take these treatments will complains of insane side affects as the chemo and radiation actually burns through their body. 

Wouldn't you want to do every thing nutritionally possible to avoid this type of treatment.

 It is criminal to 'force' people to take this treatment especially young children without trying a healthier, more saner approach to treating the human body. 

Too much radiation is really dangerous for people, especially small children.

Because of Fukishima's nuclear disaster there is now tons of radiation in our air, soil, water, food.  This is causing all kinds of a variety of health problems in millions of people.

Any unnecessary radiation should now be avoided.

Radiation should only be used in a life and death emergency, to set broken bones,  to find tumors...etc.

Social Services requires a court order before they can order up any extra mandatory orders for any type of treatment that involves radiation or nuclear energy be it x-rays, cat scans (which are giant microwaves), ultra sounds...etc.  And they need hard evidence that a crime has been committed before they subject minors to any type of unnecessary treatment of radiation or nuclear energy.

We live in a democracy, not a dictatorship, we have the right to choose our own medical treatments without having western medicine involuntarily shoved down our throats.

The pharmaceutical and nuclear lobbyists have planted numerous article in magazines over the decades citing  reasons why holistic treatments don't work when in fact nothing could be further from the truth and there are millions of testimonies from around the globe proving them wrong. 

The foods you eat can be either a medicine chest or poison, so eat healthy.

And add supplements to your diet because we live in a chemical invested world unprecedented in mankind. My grandmother did not live like this as a child, we created this mess in the last 100 years.





Suggested readings: Prevention Magazine. 
(over the years these people have carried numerous good articles on the treatment and prevention of cancer)

            Second hand cigarette smoke is a source of carbon monoxide and can cause a sudden
            drop in blood pressure in non smokers who inhale the second hand smoke.  It can also cause heart,     
            lung and neurological problems. 

            Cigarette smoking should be banned in all public places, indoor and outdoor. 

            But, as usual, the Canadian Government just allows people to be stupid and then we all pay
            in the form of taxes for this dirty expensive habit.



            Canada's free, expensive health care tab for McDonalds and Timmies.  Think about it.



Arthritis means inflammation of a joint and there are over a hundred different types of arthritis, the most common being Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid.

Osteoarthritis is the wear and tear type of joint inflammation.

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder in which the body's immune system improperly identifies the synovial membranes that secrete lubricating fluid in the joints as foreign. Inflammation results, and the cartilage and tissues in and around the joints are damaged or destroyed.

Osteoarthritis affects individual joints, rheumatoid arthritis affects all of the body's synovial joints.

Vitamins and Herbs that can help Osteoarthritis:


Niacin appears to decrease pain and increase mobility of painful joints.
Panthothenic acid helps joint pain in over three-quarters of people who use this supplement.

Shaklee's B-complex contains high levels of both niacin and pantothenic acid.


Vitamin C is crucial for the formation of collagen, the main protein component of cartilage and bone.

Shaklee's Vitamin C-500 is equivalent to the same amount of vitamin C that you would get if you ate an orange every hour for five hours.


Vitamin E reduces the pain associated with osteoarthritic joints.
Selenium works with vitamin E towards reducing the symptoms of pain and stiffness in arthritic joints.

Shaklee's vitamin E's are all natural sources with no chemical or synthetic substance.
G.L.A., linolic acid and fish oils (EPA).

These are basic nutrients from which your body makes potent natural anti-inflammatory chemicals called prostaglandins.

Shaklee's GLA is derived from the borage and sunflower oils. Borage oil provides at least twice as much GLA as evening primrose oil.


Alfalfa contains all of the minerals essential for bone formation and is helpful for arthritis.
Each one of Shaklee's Alfalfa tablets contain 296 mg.'s premium-quality alfalfa leaf cuttings, organically grown.


All nutrients are needed to aid in the repairing of tissue and cartilage.
Shaklee's multi-vitamins contain up to 12 essential vitamins and 11 essential minerals. Available with or without iron.

GLUCOSAMINE (For Osteoarthritis)

Scientific studies indicate that glucosamine has been shown to support the body's natural ability to build and maintain the cartilage that provides cushioning of joints and helps maintain range of motion.

Shaklee uses the hydrochloride form of glucosamine because it is a more potent form of the sulphate form.


Consider the fact that the regular use of over the counter and prescription anti-inflammatory medication can cause irritation to the lining of your gastrointestinal tract and many medications can damage your liver.

Recent studies have found that the enzyme ‘bromine,’ found in fresh pineapple, assists in the reduction of inflammation.  Apparently systemic enzymes, found in coniferous vegetables and pineapple have been known to reduce inflammation.   

5.  Nutritional Help For Asthma and Allergies

   People with allergies and asthma have nutritional needs far above the general population.

   Keeping a strong immune system is key to keeping asthma and allergies under control and there are certain foods which assist in this.

   Remember, your diet can either be natures medicine chest or poison to your body so choose your diet carefully.  

   Diet for allergies (also the high energy diet)

1.  Foods low in fat (fat depresses the immune system)

2.  High fiber (helps to flush out toxins)

3.  Cold water fish (mega 3 fatty acids strengthen the immune system)

4.  Lots of fruits and vegetables (powerhouses of nutrients)

5.  8 glasses of water per day (use a reverse osmosis water filter)

6.  High amounts of grains

7.  Low red meat amounts

8  Reduce refined carbohydrates (sugar and alcohol)

9.  Stay away from food chemicals (preservatives, colours)  A good rule is that if it won't
     rot, don't buy it.

Vitamins and Mineral Supplements:

Protein: 95% of immune components are made of protein.  Protein is building blocks called amino acids.  Soy bean is low in fat and is an excellent source of protein.

Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA): fish oil is effective in reducing allergic response.

Vitamin E (with selenium): E and selenium help each other out.  Vitamin E has antihistamine properties and works will with vitamin C.  Vitamin E has a strengthening effect on the heart so start slow.

Vitamin C: Helps to stabilize the immune system.

Vitamin A and Beta Carotene:  Beta Carotene is responsible for the health of the mucous membrane.

Vitamin B: involved in cell division.

Zinc: Powerhouse in maintaining a healthy immune system.

Iron: People with allergies tend to be low on iron.  Extra iron does no good.  Your iron levels should be stable.

Copper: Utilizes iron.


Alfalfa:  Natures natural decongestant and antihistamine.  Constant daily doses keep allergies under control.  You cannot over dose on alfalfa and many people can tolerate very high amounts.

Garlic: Natures natural antibiotic.  Stabilized the immune system. People with heart conditions need to be careful not to use too much garlic.

Echinacea: Helps colds, sore throats and bronchitis.  Good for the immune system. Use only at the beginning of a cold.

Ginseng: Helps the body adapt and control stress.  People with certain heart conditions should not use ginseng.

Peppermint:   Peppermint tea is good.  Alfalfa can be added to make a soothing drink.

Add lots of hot spicy foods such as red peppers and hot sauce.

And chicken soup really is good for colds and flues.  Scientists identified a substance in chicken that helps this.


   6.  The Wellness Concept
  ‘Wellness’ is a buzzword of the 80's and 90’s as fitness and wellness centers spring up all over the continent.

   Baby boomers are obsessed with youth and vitality.

   Wellness brings together healthy mind, body and spirit and the concept has existed for thousands of years.

   It is described well by Dr. Jim Biggers of California, “The big issue today is getting people to understand that it is their responsibility. They need to be more proactive and make healthier lifestyle choices.  They need more education so that people are better apt to make healthier choices.”

   The whole wellness concept is exercise, nutrition, stress management, mental, social, physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. The entire concept is all this put together.

   The absence of disease is just that, the absence of disease. Most doctors are around to treat disease to neutral. If you want to move from neutral to wellness, you must take matters into your own hands.

   Take responsibility for your own health. More doctors are moving towards educating people to take responsibility for their own lives.  Doctor is a Latin word to mean ‘teach.’ Many of them will admit that there is no money in it though.

   It would be great if there were non-drug, no-surgery to improve your mental, physical health. There are, and none of this is new.  Common sense.  Tons of non-drug interventions to improve your health: exercise, weight control, chemical habit control (drugs, alcohol, processed foods, tobacco, salt, sugar, and stress management).

   Dr. Biggers has an excellent blurb on stress management, “All of the wellness definitions which come to light mention the healthy combination of mind, body and spirit. Exercise is that, simply exercise and is only one small but important part of the over all wellness picture.”


     7.      Help for the Common Cold 


A Strong immune system

Vitamin C and oranges 
Hot peppers
Lots of alfalfa
Chicken soup
Coenzyme Q10

Sore throats, gargle with warm salt water as often as possible. 

Try to avoid food or drink for one half hour afterwards. 

Suck on chew-able vitamin C and zinc losenger.   Note, this will eat away at tooth enamel  so be sure to rinse with water afterwards. 

In the winter, double up on multi-vitmains.  

REMEMBER:  A healthy immune system is your best defense against colds, and flues allergies. 


     8. Help for a Healthy Heart

Required levels vary from individual so it’s always best to research any vitamin or herbal supplement before using. 

It’s always best to start slow on vitamin therapy, gradually add stuff and see how you feel. 

It can often take years to determine your specific required doses.

Never let a doctor tell you that you cannot repair heart damage. There are tons of testimonies from people who have successfully used vitamin therapy to heal and repair a damaged heart.  

1.  Vitamin E -  This vitamin has a strengthing effect on the heart and you should start
                          with a low does and gradually build up.  

                        If you already eat a lot of foods high in vitamin E, you may not need a

2.  B-complex – Good for a variety of things including your blood.
                            B 100’s is a good balanced dose but individual needs will vary.

3.  Vitamin C -  People with heart problems could consider at least 500 mg per day.                             

4.   Selenium -  Selenium and magnesium are trace minerals that regulate the
                         heart’s rhythm. 

                        Selenium also works as an antioxidant, protecting you from the effects of                                       pollution.

                        The suggested therapeutic amount for people with heart arrhythmias is                           200mcg’s daily. 

5.  Co-enzyme Q-10  - Another antioxidant that works a lot like vitamin E.  Therapeutic
                        levels vary from 30 to 400 mgs daily.   Often touted as the ‘miracle’
                        vitamin for heart disease.

6.  Folic Acid – Active women are often low on folic acid and beets are one of the
                           best natural sources.   Therapeutic levels for iron poor blood is 1 mg
                           per day. 

7.   Omega – 3    High in vitamin E.  Will strengthen the heart muscle.

8.   Lecithin -     A cheap vitamin that will break up saturated fat in the body. Anyone
                           with a history of stroke or angina will benefit from this. 

Recommended foods high in vitamin E

-fresh salmon (3 times a week)

-flax seeds

-sun flower seeds.


Other vitamins that support a healthy immune system include a good multi-vitamin, beta carotene,  zinc. 

9.  Diabetes 

 With diabetes the cells of the pancreas are sick.  So feed it the proper nutrients it needs to build healthy cells with. Beta-Carotene foods and supplements and a good multi-vitamin are highly recommended. 




Basic H

   NOTE: This list is for the original Basic H.  

The new Basic H2,  is twice as strong, 

so only half of suggested amounts should be needed

 (this list is a not published by Shaklee but is a compilation of suggested uses as recorded by customers who have used the products. This list is presented to you by an independent distributer).


-is organic, biodegradable, phosphate-free, non-toxic, non-irritating, non-magnetic, non-flammable, and safe.

-was developed in co-operation with nature; is concentrated and very economical.

-is a wetting agent, is a surfactant. Surfactants break down the cohesive tension of capillary water.



-does not clean by chemical action; it cleans by physical action. This is what makes BASIC H so unique - - making water wetter and emulsifying grease. 
These are the two functions of the SHAKLEE CLEANERS: BASIC H,  BASIC L. These two actions make them totally different from any other cleaners on the market today.


You will soon determine the proportion required to fit your own particular circumstances and type of water. The following is given as a suggested guide.

BASIC H (t.= teaspoon T.= tablespoon) 

1 t. per quart water 2 t. per quart water

1 T. per gallon water 4 T. per gallon water for

exceptionally difficult   cleaning jobs.

Basic H Around the Home:


1 teaspoon of Basic H in quart of water or 1 tablespoon Basic H per gallon. Great for woodwork, walls, ceilings, etc.

WINDOWS, MIRRORS, GLASS: To 16 oz. water in a Shaklee spray Unit, add 4 drops Basic H. Spray glass and wipe clean. DO NOT use more than 1 drop per 4 oz. or glass will smear. Will keep all glass from fogging.

DUSTING: To 1 pint water, add 1/4 teaspoon Basic H. Dip sponge or soft cloth in solution and then squeeze dry. Wipe off dust, fingerprints, smudges. Actually nourishes furniture and will not harm finish. Leaves bright non-magnetic surface which won't attract dust. A drop or two of Baby oil added to the mixture add lustre.

POLISHING FURNITURE, PANELING - to 1 quart water, add 1 teaspoon BASIC SHINE. Dip soft cloth in solution; squeeze dry. Clean and polish in one operation - and it's great for both wood and formica.

FLOORS - Mop floor with 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of lukewarm water. Wring mop dry and wipe spots. Leave floor shining without removing wax! To remove deep, imbedded dirt and to strip wax or polish use Basic I (2 oz. to 1 gallon of hot water). Soak and rinse.

PHONOGRAPH RECORDS and CD's - For sharper tones and to keep records dust free longer, clean with a soft cloth dipped in 1 cup water and 5 drops of Basic H. Won't harm records. (2 drops for CD's) 

GLUE: - Remove most glue with Basic H directly from the bottle. Then wipe and rinse with water.

BASIC H AS BUG REPELLENT - Rub Basic H on neck, arms, hands and face. Flies, mosquitoes, chiggers and fleas will not bite where Basic H has been applied. KEEP AWAY FROM EYES.

INVISIBLE GLOVE: Apply Basic H full strength. Apply to hands like a lotion and let dry before painting, gardening, polishing shoes, etc. Rinse clean when finished. Also protects your hands when using steel wool.

CLOGGED DRAINS - 1 cup concentrated Basic H dumped in drain every other day and left in drain overnight if possible. Spray plumbing joints with Basic H to get open easier.

SEPTIC TANKS - 2 quarts Basic H if dumped in septic tanks every six moths will keep it open.
In the Kitchen: 

LETTUCE: Use 2 or 3 drops of Basic H in a bowl of water with lettuce to make it crisp and to help remove pesticides and pollution. Rinse before using.

FISH ODORS: Use 1 T. per quart of water. Works wonders around boats, docks and other 'fishy' areas. Also removed odorous from tools and hands.

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES - Use 1/4 teaspoon Basic H per pint of water to remove residues of grime and poisonous sprays. Scrub potatoes before baking. To crisp lettuce, use 2 or 3 drops in a bowl of water. Basic H is non-toxic, but rinse foods after using before cooking.

ODOR REMOVAL - After dicing onions, garlic, etc., does the scent linger on your hands? Simply rub a few drops of Basic H into your hands, then rinse. For removing odors from a person, pet or clothing, wash in 1 tablespoon Basic H and 1 gallon warm water.

DISHES. - Use 1 teaspoon Basic H and add water full force. Wash glasses, silverware, dishes, pans. Removes grease, food stains easily and rinses cleanly. Leaves no detergent residue on utensils and NO DETERGENT BURN ON YOUR HANDS! 

When draining from sink this solution cleans out grease deposits and prevents your drain from clogging. for especially dirty pans, fill with water add a few drops of Basic H and soak.

COFFEE AND TEA - Use half the amount of coffee or tea and 2 drops of Basic H in 8 cup pot. Removes bitterness. Delicious.

POTATOES: - Wash potatoes in Basic H water before boiling for salad. Potatoes peel easier and are cleaner.

BEANS: Soak dry beans in Basic H water (a few drops) and the beans will cook much quicker and beans will be much cleaner.

POPCORN: A drop of Basic H added to popcorn oil in popper before adding corn makes corn pop bigger and better and fewer hulls.

COOKING CHICKEN - Wash in Basic H water (a few drops) and the formaldehyde will be removed.
