Thread: chemicals in cotton wool drink filter

    Default chemicals in cotton wool drink filter

    On a website for real ginger beer, they recommended straining it through
    cotton wool.

    I could see cotton wool could make a handy very fine straining medium, but
    might it leach some chemicals perhaps used in the production process; that
    were not good to have in the final product?

    There is indeed 'cotton wool' that has been bleached and sterillized to use
    for medical purposes such as packing a wound. It may be safe enough to
    strain ginger beer but I'm not so sure about the taste or the er...umm...
    would the word be 'clarity'? Seems like you'd wind up with some fuzzy
    particles. Interesting question. Polly

    Filter papers, as used by chemists, don't add to the filtrate but it's
    difficult to select the right grade especially if the particles being
    filtered tend to stick together. You might just be able to use the
    filter basket of a coffee maker.

    People have been using cotton balls to strain heroin, speed, and
    cocaine for decades and they're not dying left and right and quite
    happy.

    You're just a CHEAPO MuhFuhkin' Bastard... we ain't tawkin' a
    filtration system for Sea World here... you can buy an entire aquarium
    filter kit for your widdle jug of hooch at Amazon for like $16, and
    you can buy one at Walmart for $11:
    http://www.amazon.com/Small-World%C2...7988222&sr=8-1
    http://www.walmart.com/ip/Regent-For...-1-ct/10313136
    And between filtration jobs you can shove the tube up your
    tighter-than-a-clam's-ass butt hole and maybe pump yourself up to big
    boy size. All the normal folks know you're angry because you couldn't
    think of using an aquarium filter... only a total moron couldn't think
    of a dozen ways to filter your widdle ginger poop... normal brained
    people would be ashamed to post your silly question... you're a
    friggin' loser, dwarf... you were always a loser, you will always be a
    loser.
