Homemade Saline Solution

For Toddlers with Eye Infection

I remembered in the pass that Kimi had an eye infection and the nurse gave a saline solution to be wiped on the infected eye. This helped to clear the mucus. She also printed this from the internet so we can make it at home. Seems useful for future reference (although I could just visit the website for the recipe, but knowing me, I might not be able to find it [-_-]").
