How to make sterile saline for contact lens storage Answered

It would be amazing to learn how to make sterile saline solution for simple contact lens solution. Most commercially available contact lens solutions have harsh detergents (granted, to keep bacteria at bay), and they are expensive and irritating. I've been using plain sterile saline for years without issue but it's just salt and water - can't somebody tell us how to make it for free?

NOTE: Nevermind. I just saw this crazy letter. http://www.craig.copperleife.com/health/saline.htm. I will stick with store-bought.
