If you use much colloidal silver, you know it’s quite expensive. Learn how to make colloidal silver at home, so you can have lots of colloidal silver cheap!
I am not a doctor. This is in no way advice for you or a claim about any health products, I am simply sharing my experience with colloidal silver, and how I make it.
I started making colloidal silver a couple of years ago, after a friend recommended it when we were all sick with a bad cough. We have been really happy with how much it helps our coughs when we add a little to the humidifier, but it’s so expensive I felt like I needed to ration it.
Now that I make my own, I can use it liberally. In fact, I even use it for cleaning!
My sister was a little skeptical about colloidal silver until one day when she cut a bunch of jalapenos with her bare hands (I don’t recommend that). Her hands were burning, and no amount of washing was helping. She poured some colloidal silver in sandwich bags and stuck her hands in and found immediate relief.
These are just 2 of the ways we use colloidal silver. There are so many more, but since I’m not giving medical advice, I’ll just say to use a search engine that isn’t the main one, to find more information on the uses.
Once you decide you want to start using colloidal silver, you’ll find that you can make it for a very low cost, and then brewing it only costs pennies!

- Cut the end off the printer cable (the end that would connect to the printer), and strip the wire down a little ways. Put alligator clips on the exposed ends.
- Cut the silver rod to two pieces about 6 inches each. Bend the end of each piece similar to a candy cane and attach an alligator clip.
- Add distilled water to sterilized quart jar.
- Hang the silver pieces over the edge of the jar, keeping them on opposite sides of the jar.
- Plug in, and start a timer. It takes about 1 hour for me, but the first time you make it you'll want to stop at about 30 minutes and taste test it (make sure to unplug it!), and then stop every 10 minutes to check again. If it starts to taste metallic, you know it's slightly overdone. It's still usable, but next time do 5 minutes less so it's more palatable. Once you know how long it takes, you can just set the timer and let it do it's thing.
**If you accidentally forget about it and overbrew it (ahem... I've done that more than I like to admit) you can still use it for cleaning. It will still be usable, but it probably won't taste so great.
Note #1: To make colloidal silver, you need an old printer cord that has about 32V output. It will say this on it somewhere. I just asked around to see if anyone had a printer that had died, and got an HP one. It will be an AC power adapter.
Note #2: You also need silver rods. I got mine from Rio Grande (you can click the link in the list of materials to find what I bought. It is not an affiliate link, just a direct link to help you find it easier). You want pure silver, so a jewelry making company is the way to go since they offer .999 silver. I ordered 2 pieces of 12 gauge that were 1 foot long each, and that cost around $15 altogether, but one piece has lasted me a year, so one should do.
