Take one little nine volt battery and attach some flex to the terminals.
Fix crocodile clips to the loose ends of the flex.
Total cost from Maplins is five quid.
Buy silver strips from internet at five quid the pair.
Put silver strips into crocodile clips and dip silver into water.
Be careful not to let any other part touch the water.
Remember to swap silver strips from one terminal to the other or you'll get uneven wear on one.
It's best to use hot or boiling water.

Tap water will turn milky within a minute and that's your colloidal – suitable for washing up and clothes etc.
If it turns slatey greyish then you've let the light get at it and you have silver nitrate – do not drink this!!! Dump it.

Distilled water takes longer and it's best to add some seed colloidal to get it started. It produces a lovely honey colour when done.
This is for drinking, cooking and so on.

Hey presto and voila - colloidal for pennies per gallon.

According to the MAYO CLINIC https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/consumer-health/expert-answers/colloidal-silver/faq-20058061
. . . . . Rarely, excessive doses of colloidal silver can cause possibly irreversible serious health problems, including kidney damage and neurological problems such as seizures.

Colloidal silver products may also interact with medications, including penicillamine (Cuprimine, Depen), quinolone antibiotics, tetracycline and thyroxine (Unithroid, Levoxyl, Synthroid) medications.

I don't drink it - never seen the point - external use only. It's a disinfectant, a steriliser, an indiscrinate killer of microscopic lifeforms, and destroys friendly fauna.
