An update on where I am. I've decided to begin this regime in the next week. Until then I am making the necessary preparations. So far I have bought Epsom Salt and bicarbonate soda:
I've also bought a measuring jug, glass bottle to store the solution and a small bowl to do the soak. I have ordered a measuring cylinder as well which should arrive today, and am still to buy a teaspoon made of wood to do the stirring, as I read you should avoid using metal since it can de-ionize the solution or something.
Over the coming days I will be preparing the solution itself. I think it is very important to ensure you roughly have the right concentration. Throwing in a few crystals will do nothing if you're using a disproportionate amount of water. Apparently quite a bit goes into this. But I'll make a comment for that later.
