Recipe: Electrolyte Drink

Dehydrated due to diarrhea or working hard/sweating? If you don't keep Gatorade or Pedialyte around, try this recipe:

Ingredients:
1 quart water
8 teaspoons white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Directions:
Mix thoroughly. I tried this with a quart bottle, screwed the cap on tightly, and shook. Not exactly the tastiest thing, so I added a half teaspon of lemon juice to give it a little lemony taste. Helped a great deal.

Also heard you could add a package of colored drink mix like kool-aid or even tang to improve taste.
