Blue Balls, Anyone?
This, in order to keep excessively bright light off the silver particles so they won’t oxidize and fall out of suspension, ruining the potency of your batch.
But that leads to the
problem of having to make your colloidal silver in one jar, and then after it’s
made, transfer it into a colored glass bottle for long-term storage.
You can even leave your colored glass storage containers out on a countertop without having light ruin the potency of the colloidal silver inside of them.
Here’s the story…
The brand new one-quart wide-mouthed Ball canning jars in stunningly beautiful light turquoise blue color are now available on Amazon.com.
They're a little pricey. (See this link, or search Amazon using the key words “Ball Wide Mouth Elite Collection Quart Jars 4 Pack, Blue.”)
But the beauty is that they allow you to make colloidal silver AND store colloidal silver in the same colored one-quart, wide-mouthed glass jar.
You no longer have to make your colloidal silver in one jar,
and then transfer it into a dark glass bottle for long-term storage after it's
High Shipping Charges
So if you don’t want to pay for shipping (and you’re feeling lucky), these same turquoise blue, one-quart, wide-mouthed Ball canning jars just might end up being carried at Walmart or other big box stores and canning supply stores later this year during the upcoming canning season.
If so, they’d likely be a bit less expensive. And you won’t pay those exorbitant shipping
charges (I recently paid $20.23 in shipping charges to have 12 of these blue jars shipped to me through Amazon.com.)
But I wanted mine now, because they’re beautiful, and because Ball canning company has a terrible habit of selling out of their decorative colored one-quart, wide-mouthed canning jars fast, and not re-stocking until the next year’s canning season.
Last year Ball canning company came out with similar colored one-quart, wide-mouthed canning jars in light green color. As of this writing, the green jars are available once more on Amazon at this link.
In the past, I've experimented with all three of these one-quart, wide-mouthed, colored glass canning
jars, and they work great for keeping excessive levels of light off your
colloidal silver solution to prevent oxidation and precipitation of silver
Metal Lids v/s Plastic Lids
By the way, the colored, one-quart, wide-mouthed colored Ball canning jars come with metal lids.
There’s nothing wrong with using metal lids, as long as you
don’t fill the jar so high with colloidal silver that the water is touching the
metal lids (metal tends to make electrically charged silver particles lose
their electrical charge and fall out of suspension).
I have no idea how long these colored canning jars are going to be available online. Nor do I have any idea if the big box stores and other canning jar supply stores are going to carry them later this canning season.
That’s why I’m telling you about them now, while they’re still available online.
If you make your own colloidal silver like me, and you like
to keep a lot of it in storage for
emergencies and for multitudes
of household purposes such as these, as well as for “prepping” for that day
when the you-know-what finally hits the fan, then you already know you can never have enough colored glass storage
Finally, I'd like to note that I have no business affiliation or other relationship with the above companies except that I buy their products for my own personal use in making and storing colloidal silver.
That means I pay full price just like anybody else. And I don’t get anything from them for telling you about the availability of these products. I'm just passing this info on to you as a courtesy.
Of course, I ordered my new turquoise blue, one-quart,
wide-mouth Ball canning jars first, before
writing this article, to make sure I get some in case people make a run on them
and they sell out faster than normal, which is not at all uncommon.
Here are a few other short but informative articles you might want to take a gander at on the topic of glass containers:
Meanwhile, I’ll be back next week with another great article on colloidal silver….
Yours for the safe, sane and responsible use of colloidal silver,
