  1. Dissolve one powder packet into 16 oz of lukewarm water for a 1:40 dilution.
  2. Moisten the solution with a clean, soft, white cloth such as gauze, a thin diaper, a clean pillowcase cut into strips, a handkerchief, or a small towel.
  3. Wring out the cloth gently until damp (but not soaking wet).
  4. Place the damp cloth loosely over the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. If the gauze or other material dries out, moisten it again before removing from the skin so as not to damage your skin.
