Introduction: How to Make COLLOIDAL SILVER (Easy)

About: Jack of all trades and master of several, you will find me usually tackling a couple of projects at a time, usually successfully (unless something blows up)

Colloidal Silver is the most potent disinfectant and antiseptic, and on-contact killer of viruses, bacteria, fungi and all kinds of germs. My guess is, if you want to make it, you probably know what is does, and how it has been used for the last 3,000 years. Since you can make it yourself and you need no prescription, you will not see it on TV -- ever!
Items you need:
2 ft. common electric wire  (any laying around in the house)
4 small alligator clamps    ( $6 for 4 at the hardware store)
    A bit of electric tape.
3    9V  batteries  ( about $ 10)
Distilled water  $0.99
Saline  (eyewash drops)  $2-3.00
1 ft silver wire, 999.99  pure . $10-25.00, depending on gauge, a thin one will do fine.
A glass (for the electrolysis) no plastic or metal containers

Instructions in the video.
You don't  need a box for the apparatus or soldering anything. twist the wires and cover with electric tape. Just connect your batteries in series to get 27 Volt.
  When you are done, clean the oxidized wire with a rough cloth or soda, and store all the pieces in a zip-lock bag until next time.
Store colloidal silver in glass, away from light.

What am I doing wrong. After only 2 hours there is an ugly grey cloudy look with black sediment in the bottom of the jar. I have tried it twice and can't get it to look like it is supposed to look like. Does anyone relate or know what could be wrong?

The grey cloudy look is all the silver that is in the water. You need to dilute the crap out of the original batch that you make. Almost impossible to get a low enough TDS of silver on the first go. Buy a total dissolved solids meter for 100 bucks or so. Also, gonna need to buy TDS solution to keep the meter in calibration. That isn't too expensive. 150 ppm solution should do the trick.

BillB250... While I appreciate your attempt to help, I have since done some research and find out that what you suggest is not acceptable. My product was cloudy grey because the particles were too large and too many. .I want a clear liquid of low ppm (10-15) of very small particles. 150 ppm is way too high Diluting is NOT the answer. And an adequate TDS .meter doesn't cost no $100 !
When particles are small enough the resulting liquid will be clear. That can be achieved by controlling the current. I put a potentiometer and a multimeter in series with 3 9v batteries. I can control the current so that it is no greater than 1 milliamp. The result is beautiful!!!

So, if you're going to do this, it's best to remember that the content
of silver in the water shouldn't be too high. I'm not sure what the
most effective level is, but 30 parts per million (ppm) seems to do the
trick. What you need to measure this is called a TDS (total dissolved
solids)
meter. They're not super cheap, but it will keep you from turning your
skin blue with too high a silver content. Anyways, measure the TDS of
the water before you add silver and again after you add the silver,
subtract the first reading from the second. Then lets say you have 2
cups of colloidal silver at 90 ppm (original tds reading minus added
silver tds reading). Then all you have to do is do a little math and
adding 4 more cups of water will get you to 6 cups at 30 ppm of silver
content.

I just made my own colloidal silver for the first time. I think I have a problem though, I knocked the wire rod when I was removing it and the seaweed like particles all fell off into the solution. Will it be safe to consume with the particles in? Should I throw it away and start again?

You are using wire instead of rod. The substance is silver oxide. Throw it out and start over. BTW, you are making Ionic Silver, not a Colloid. Scroll up to my earlier comments.

He said he was using rod!

You should do more than just watch a fer videos on YouTube before putting stuff out. Please read this and learn something. Lives may depend on it. I am always available to talk, and teach. Please take article down the inaccuracies hurt credibility of all you do. On the left is a 20ppm Colloidal Silver. On the right a 20ppm Ionic Silver.

So how do I make Colloid silver & not the Ionic one?

this link says nothing about making colloidal silver. It's just posting a bunch of ads from different people!

Thank you Chuck. I am sure there are ways to produce better forms of colloidal silver with expensive equipment ( like with laser ablation), but this is an easy and cheap way to do it at home, for emergencies. I am not selling anything, People who want to buy, can do their due diligence.

"this way" does not make a Colloid. It makes Ionic. Do not drink Ionic Silver it only becomes silver chloride on exposure to the chlorides in the human body.

Do not drink what you are making. All you will be doing is putting Silver Chloride in your body. Worthless for health. What you are making is NOT A COLLOID. My best to you. Touch base if you want to talk,

Here are several FREE booklets from Bob Beck for making CS, blood electrification, ETC so you can learn for yourself. I have found heating the distilled water by almost boiling it helps. If you boil it , that will help remove some chemicals and it lowers the resistance of the water, making a higher concentration of CS without adding anything. I pour the water and add the silver electrodes when it as as hot as possible, setting it on a oven mit to insulate it from the table to keep it hotter longer and keep a over mit around the glass too. Also, keep it out of the light when making it and when storing it. A colored glass is best like a beer or wine type glass bottle or wrap it in a paper bag like I do.

I've found 16 volts from a power supply for 15 minutes them reverse the electrodes and clean them each time with a green scratch pad for doing dishes is needed. It makes a higher concentration with the higher temperature water. Just be careful not to burn yourself. You can put a small light bulb in the circuit in case the electrodes accidentally short together. I use a small length of wood with aligator clips to hold the silver coins in place WITHOUT allowing the water to touch them. The water should touch ONLY THE SILVER. And use a glass container since plastic leaches chemicals into the water. That is why plastic tastes funny I think.

Beck did not know the difference between a Colloid and Ionic Silvers. I give hin no credance because of that.

Stop spamming this blog with your advertisement. There are plenty of good plans for making your own colloidal silver generator online, including the one above.
