Just for interest on the boiling water issue. I attended a basic health workshop recently and was shocked to hear that we think that boiling water in a kettle sterilizes it. Think about it: as soon as the water reaches boiling point the kettle switches off! Water needs to remain at boiling point for between 3 to 5 minutes to be properly sterilized. I now boil my water on the stove 1 gallon at a time and then bottle the excess for a maximum of 3 days.
