What may or may not be lost through the filter is worth losing, and do not re-use filters or 'boil' with in an attempt to reclaim that lost H. Swim
used to do this and got 'cotton fever' and it was absolutly hellish. Swim didn't get why she was ill. The symptoms were like acute wds, but came on full force within an hour and the head ache was unbelievable. Consequently, Swim pinned more to try alleviate the symptoms (again using a re-used filter) and this just made it so much worse.
If y'going to be a very economical junkie...also be a wise one. Cotton fever is not nice.

In some of the exchanges in the UK they give stericups with filters...and they're brilliant, not like cotton, like plastic, work perfectly and don't retain the gear like cotton seems to. Still, they never gave Swim more than about ten a pop and Swim, being lazy and often desperate, would re-use her pins and the filters, cups etc and run out of vitc so often. If it is possible to buy them online, Swim would recomend it, and buying vitc if possible.
