Make sure you get aragonite sand....Take some vinegar and put some sand on your hand and dump the vinegar on it, it should fizzle and foam if it is the right stuff...

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Yes. Rinse. Rinse and agian IMO, otherwise you'll have a wicked sand storm for days and each time it's stirred up.
