This Is A Pretty Clever Gimmick

How To Purify Water With Household Bleach |
When it comes to disinfecting water, it seems there is a different ratio and percentage for all kinds of different purifying agents and it can get really confusing.  It can be hard to keep these ratios and solutions straight but it is very important that we do.  All of the liters, quarts, drops, gallons, mL, cups and percentages are very easy to loose track of.  I have a very simple memory phrase when it comes to disinfecting water with bleach.  Once you read this phrase, you will never forget how to disinfect water with bleach again.  The phrase is:

You must be 21 to drink.

How simple is that?  It is a simple reminder that you need 2 drops of bleach per 1 liter or quart of water – hence 21.  And, that just happens to be the legal drinking age in the US so it’s very easy to remember.

There's quite a bit more, but I thought this was worth highlighting.

Good one.  When I did Outward Bound, 'way back when, each  team had a jug of Chlorox that was used for purification.  Back in those antediluvian days, it was all that was considered necessary.  (And as far back in the woods as we were, even that may not have been necessary...)
