09:04 – Barbara and I are doing the usual Sunday stuff. After Barbara finishes cleaning house and ironing, we’ll get back to building more science kits.

I’ve been saving the dehumidifier water in new 5-gallon (19 liter) buckets. Chemically, it’s as pure as distilled/deionized water from the supermarket, so it’s fine for making up solutions for kits and we don’t have to buy it. It’s not potable, of course, because it contains bacteria, mold spores, etc. that the filter doesn’t catch. I’m running out of new 5-gallon buckets, so I’m going to start transferring it to labeled 2-liter soda bottles that I’ll store for use later in the year when we’re no longer running the dehumidifier.
