morning urine is apparently the best thing to wash your face with... all of the nutrients will clear and soften your skin

Urine is used on the battle field in some occasions even today because it is sterile and a powerful bactericide.

It is also useful as discussed at some length in another nakedsci thread, for removing warts.

Builders use it on their hands to toughen them up. The acid is a perfect antidote for cement and quicklime burns.

Very good for getting you out of bed early.

And an excellent wet suit warmer. So I am told.

in a survival situation wee on your feet to stop them getting cold,wee removes the lanolin from wool making it useable for spinning.its also a fertiliser,it stops deer coming into your garden if you pour it in strategic places,and its a good sound for making when playing frisbee. [^]

Thanks Wolram...I'm aware that the water we drink has had to go through the sewer treatment stage. I was thinking along the lines of consuming ones own urine.
