Nope. No way to activate without any liquid! That's because I'm using sodium chlorite flakes and citric acid powder, so they are both dry.

Yes indeed! , that's my wife's rice cooker in the background. But I don't use it for CDS. Only for rice
Secondly - is that a rice cooker in the background of the photo? I made some CDS on the weekend using a rice cooker filled with water to heat the baby bottle in & it worked beautiflly.
Although the standard methods do work great and are correct, and I also recommend people to use them, I guess I always try to improve on just about anything I do!

Indeed, and I'm just describing my own way to create the same target product, just a different way. There's always margin for improvement, as long as it's beneficial for everyone and the final product is the same or better.
Looks like it works so that's great, just want to be sure others are perfectly clear on what you're doing and not getting confused with what we've all been taught. Your method does simplify things for sure, no need to make MMS or citric acid solutions first.
I clearly posted about that in the case of the picture, where I was making a little over 24 Oz. so I was using about 1/4 teaspoon of each in the reaction bottle.

To be sure I understand your method to generate CDS, I will list the steps & please tell me if I am wrong.
1. Add to a small baby bottle:
a. 1 tsp NaCLO2 flakes
b. 1 tsp citric acid crytals
c. 1 fl oz water
2. Connect the gas tube from the baby bottle to a container filled with distilled water. You say the bottle is filled with 1 gallon of water, but the bottle in the picture with graduations on the side (4, 8, 12, 16, 20) appears to be in fluid ounces, so I would guess that bottle holds 32 fl ounces or 1 quart.
The process will finish way before the solution in the baby bottle is clear!
3. Immerse the baby bottle in hot water.
4. When the baby bottle solution is clear, the process is finished.
US Ounces. Correct
5. You used an air pump to force the CLO2 gas from the baby bottle.
All units are US units, not UK or metric.
