I found that sea water did the job quite well after i picked out come carrots from puking through my regs two days earlyer.
Still gave a nice breath and extra bonus you dont smell or taste the puke.

Just a thought - where can you get hold of Citric Acid now? I used to buy it from the pharmacy at Boots or Tesco, but they all stopped selling it. I used to use it to descale the kettle too aswell as cleaning dive gear.

We used to use roughly 1 teaspoon to around 3/4l of water.

Just be ready to explain why you want it if you are buying a fair quantity (probably not as necessary with 1 box).
My boss tried picking up a half dozen boxes and was questioned by the pharmacist on why he wanted. Apparently it is used in the preparation of Heroin for injection. Best not walk in wearing manky trainers and a hoody when you buy it:)

I'm a Pharmacist and I regularily buy citric acid, lubricating gel and adult nappies from the shop I locum at. I imagine whoever checks the staff purchase book thinks I'm a dangerous pervert:) I don't have the heart to tell her I wear a rubber suit as well.......

Mmmmm,,,, I well remember going into the local chemists one morning to find a young (17-18 ish) blonde girl behind the counter, when I asked for two boxes of large latex gloves and three tubes of K-Y jelly I got such a discusted look from her that I decided that the condom's would have to wait

I scoured Stevenage last week, and the only place that sells it now is Superdrug. Even Wilkinsons has stopped stocking it.

Superdrug. Named by a genius.
Back when Thatchers Britain was just saying no, Superdrug were out there bringing a more positive message.

You'll probably find your local pastey-faced skanky-trainered hoody can get you as much citric acid as youd want.
