Mixing "Florida Water" to keep cool?
Does anyone know the proper mixture of using "Florida Water," made be Lanman & Kemp, to cool off in the extreme heat?

I tried to buy ammonia spirits to mix with ice water, which cools you immediately in the extreme heat when you use a wet towel on your face, but all the local drugstores were sold out. Walgreens was selling this Florida Water as the thing coaches are now using in the extreme heat to cool off players, but I don't know how much to put in the ice chest. Has anyone else used this stuff? If so, do you know the proper mix? Thanks.

2oz. bottle of "Spirits of Ammonia" (local drugstore)
Actually it's Aromatic Ammonia Spirit U.S.P.
3 bottles make 4 gallons
1 gal. plastic bucket (some use a playmate type cooler).
About 4-7 washcloths.

Florida Water is a 19th century formula for a commercially-prepared toilet water

This stuff has been around a loooooong time.









Anyway, we put a little less than half a bottle in an ice chest like this:

Ah....FL water.

I have no as to the mix, but the shite was awesome when I was a kid.

Wolf Ranch golf course outside Austin puts them in the cooler in the carts...they also add a little lavender scent as an extra touch.

That is the purpose for which it is needed. Are you talking the ammonia spirits or the "Florida Water Cologne?"

I know how to mix the ammonia spirits but can't find any locally as everyone is sold out. I would like to know how to mix the Florida Water Cologne.

I believe use mix 1 capfull per gallon of water.

Start on the low side and you can adjust accordingly.

I can remember playing baseball games in the middle of the day in July our coaches would soak each player with Florida water before running out on the field. That stuff was awesome.

Thanks. I should have said they are now using this instead of ammonia spirits. Strangely, the website for the product lists about 20 uses but doesn't mention mixing it with ice water to cool off.

I'm shocked this person has been going through the trouble of mixing ammonia spirits with water but has never even heard of the $.89 Mexican cologne.

Two caps full in a playmate chest with ice and a quart to a quart and a half of water. Three to four soak rags. No exact measure but it worked for our players.
