Spent forever trying to find instructions on how to make a SALINE SOLUTION (Sea Salt Soak) for my newly pierced ears and here it is; 1tbsp FINE sea salt (fine dissolves the best) to 1 gallon of DISTILLED water (if the water is not distilled it will contain minerals and other organic compounds that can agitate the piercing). Soak the piercing 2-3 times a week for about 15-30 minutes with the warm solution and voila! Saline soaks help promote cell regeneration allowing for quicker healing…
Alkenes (organic compounds containing carbon-carbon double bonds) undergo addition reactions. In this experiment monomer molecules of phenylethene (styrene) add on to each other to form a polymer, poly(phenylethene), commonly known as polystyrene. This process is started by adding a substance called a free-radical initiator.
The Special Water team have succeeded in addressing the real cause of bacterial pollution by developing a range of products to mitigate biofilm in an environmentally friendly way. AquaFinesse products are not biocides and do not contain complicated organic compounds. They work simply by loosening the biofilm (slimy layers) from their substrate, to keep your pool or hot tub clean and crystal clear.
Elina Cardet, design director of interiors at Perkins+Will's Miami office, says that most 20th century building materials (steel, wood, glass, concrete) posed little health risk because they lacked synthetic materials (certain adhesives, PVC, volatile organic compounds, formaldehyde, etc.).
