Homemade Electrolyte Solution


2 quarts water

 1-teaspoon baking soda

 1-teaspoon salt

7 Tablespoons sugar

1 packet Sugar-Free Kool-Aid

1/2-teaspoon salt substitute

The salt substitute and Kool-Aid are optional. Store in the refrigerator. Be creative; use your special Kool-Aid to make ice cubes so it will stay cool in their bottle or sippy-cup. Or, insert toothpicks into your ice cubes before freezing and make homemade popsicles. This contains sugar; it will eventually go bad so check any that has sat for a long time.
