WHAT IS MMS?
MMS is actually a 22.4% Sodium Chlorite Solution
The 28% MMS Formula you see mentioned on some sites and literature is in
fact a 22.4% Sodium Chlorite Solution if it's made properly.
This is due to the fact that 28% of the total solution is Sodium Chlorite Powder
by weight. The original Formula was created using 80% sodium chlorite powder.
When 80% Sodium Chlorite powder is used to make the MMS, the resulting
amount of actual sodium chlorite in the solution is 22.4%. The water weight
is 72%, and the remaining 5.6% is mostly common salt, (used as a stabilizer),
and small amounts of other stabilizers and inert ingredients.
Therefore when one makes MMS, the actual goal is 22.4% Sodium Chlorite by
weight in solution.
Variance between batches often occurs in the case of home made
sodium chlorite solutions and also many sites that sell it.
There are two primary reasons for this:
In many cases the manufacturer of the MMS does not have a certificate of analysis
on their raw sodium chlorite powder or flake. The fact is in most cases 80%
Sodium Chlorite is usually not 80%, by as much as a few percent.
Other reasons may be improper math, or misinformation from another source.
HOW TO MAKE MMS
Preparation and Mixing
Make sure your work area is clean, and clear. You should have your scales,
bowls ,and utensils cleaned and rinsed with distilled water. Leave the Sodium
Chlorite powder sealed until you weigh it, and seal it back up as soon as you
are done. Weigh your water according to the chart below for the amount
you want. The water may be warmed to 110 degrees for easier solubility,
but room temperature is fine.
After weighing the water add it to your bowl or mixing vessel.
Weigh out your Sodium Chlorite Powder. After you have the right weight,
close the lid on the Sodium Chlorite Powder that is left to avoid contamination,
and light exposure. Slowly add the sodium chlorite powder to the water, stir until
completely dissolved. The mixture may appear cloudy at first, this is normal, and it
should clear up, by the time it is all dissolved. Your final solution should be clear with a yellowish tint.
Cover the MMS solution and place in a dark place, allow it to sit for at least 6 hours.
You may see some sediment at the bottom in most cases, this is normal. There may
also be an oily film on the top, depending on the inert ingredients in the Sodium chlorite.
We want to skim the film off as best we can, and then draw, or pour off the MMS
without getting sediment. At this point, it is ready to filter.
Filtering is an optional step, if the instructions above are followed, the MMS is ready
for use. A 1 micron screen system with made non organic materials is perfect, and will stop most sediment
issues. DO NOT USE WHITE COFFE FILTERS. Many contain acid, and can actually
degrade the MMS over time.
