I observe that the boiling point of Dichloromethane is 39.8 C. "A dense, non-flammable colourless liquid " 250ml is available for £12 ish. It is toxic to some degree or other and it may dissolve your plastic digital thermometer but I suppose you could protect it with something. I wouldn't boil this up in the house but maybe outside with a following wind? ...

I'm an analytical chemist, here's how I would do it. Take a cooking thermometer, calibrate it and check the medical thermometer against it. This is why chemists (or students taking college chemistry) need to get good at algebra. It's not too difficult. But it's non-trivial. I'm going to work in Celsius so set your thermometers to Celsius mode. (It makes the ...

It would seem to me that if you kept a daily log of the temperatures measured, you could graph the temperatures to determine if your temperature has become abnormal regardless of how inaccurate the thermometer is. Other than that would be to research the temperatures of supercooled solutions when they shift to the solid state due to impact or sound, ...
