Water to be treated that is colder than 68 degrees F will take longer. A warmer solution of the original mixture from the bottle will have a higher concentration of iodine. So, fewer capfuls will be required, and more water can be treated before refilling the Polar Pure bottle. You can warm the bottle in your pocket or in sunlight. Dosage instructions, as well as thermal reactive paint on the bottle, tell you how much liquid to pour from the bottle into the water that is to be disinfected.
It can be very scary to think that you may have been exposed to the HIV virus that causes AIDS. Too many people decide not to be tested for exposure to the virus because they simply do not want to know the answer.

Now, they provide instructions for how to treat head lice with household ingredients you likely already have, such as vegetable oil.
There are two things that I have learned in my years of eating out. One is to always take an antihistamine before eating in any restaurant that is new to me. The other thing is to always tell the server about my food allergy.
Whenever I pull up to my local Taco Bell, a sense of reverse political correctness kicks in. I find myself pronouncing Taco Bell menu items with a Spanish language accent learned during my sophomore year in high school. I attended a tiny school smack in the middle of a cornfield where it was always so windy that 90% of everything you learned in class blew right out of your head the minute you stepped outside.

But maybe that was just a visit to the dentist. I tend to confuse these things.
