    I read that nasel cleaning liquid should be sterile and also salt should not have iodine.

    the boiling to sterile I cN do, but my salt has Iodine. What is the deal do you suppose with no iodine?

    When this purchased saline solution runs out, I will probably just make my own because there’s no reason not to.

    That is odd, since iodine is used in some parts of the world to clean water for drinking.

    There are other additives in common table salt, like dextrose, that I don't need. I'm always swabbing myself with iodine (for my moribund thyroid) and it absorbs quickly. I'm not sure how the tiny amount in a lavage would hurt anything, but I use sea salt or pink salt anyway.

    I just have to rave about my experience with our online Mayor's Action Line. First I reported a building with dangerous broken glass windows (single pane and non safety). They got the building boarded up.

    Then I complained about sawhorses on a public sidewalk with no particular purpose other than impeding foot traffic. Too insubstantial to protect anyone from something falling down and dangerous to the blind or handicapped since hard to see and very high. Next thing I know, the whole building is surrounded by very heavy duty one story scaffolding with a roof above to protect pedestrians from something that is wrong with the building. Wow. Those original sawhorses had been in place for months.
