Sterile Wash

Human urine is sterile, to my understanding. You can also drink it. I've seen instruments washed in it in the field while in Vietnam.

My neighbor, a naval photographer, and I were discussing last evening how he was instructed to urinate on a gut wound if needed to prevent drying of the wound.

In desert countries children are taught to pee on wounds to disinfect them if no fresh water is around. Yup, many uses for the remarkably undersold product.

Actually, healthy urine is naturally sterile. Just as most of our food and drink is not sterile, a mild infection (stress mild) of the urinary tract would be taken care of by the natural hydrochloric acid content of the stomach.
