Found this at survivalblog.com and felt is was worth sharing.

The following is the "Simple Solution" - Home made Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS) Recipe
Preparing 1 (one) Liter solution using Salt, Sugar and Water at home.
Mix an oral rehydration solution using the following recipe.

Ingredients:

Six (6) level teaspoons of Sugar
Half (1/2) level teaspoon of Salt
One Liter of clean drinking or boiled water and then cooled - 5 cupfuls (each cup is about 200 ml.)

Preparation Method:

Stir the mixture until the salt and sugar dissolve.

Oral rehydration will make the difference between life and death with many serious diarrheal illnesses. Make sure you have this formula somewhere on your prepper shelves and that you have adequate stockpiles of salt and sugar. Drinks like juice and Gatorade are fine to use with water until your stores run out. There are many other formulas out there, this one is simple and easy with just three ingredients.

Thanks RM. :) Maybe that's where it originally came from.

Do you think we could add a speck of flavor? lemon juice, or something?
I don't see why not. Unsweetened kool-aid comes to mind.
