    Drano/Foil/Plastic Bottle Alert

    Drano alert

    (I HAVE NOT SEEN THIS)

    Kids and others are putting Drano, tin foil, and a little water in plastic drink bottles and capping it up - leaving it on lawns, in mail boxes, in gardens, on driveways etc. just waiting for you to pick it up intending to put it in the rubbish, but you'll never make it!!!

    If the bottle is picked up, and the bottle is shaken even just a little - in about 30 seconds or less it builds up enough gas which then explodes with enough force to remove some of your extremities. The liquid that comes out is boiling hot as well.

    Don't pick up any plastic bottles that may be lying in your yards or in the gutter, etc.

    Pay attention to this. A plastic bottle with a cap. A little Drano. A little water. A small piece of foil. Disturb it by moving it; and BOOM!! No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc.

    Please ensure that everyone that may not have email access are also informed of this. Check it out at:

    This is true, unfortunatly!!

    There are even video's on You-Tube where kids can see exactly how to make one.

    Scary stuff. Makes me wonder if Drano (and the like) will be the next 'every day' product that will be kept behind the counter at the super market to be purchased only by adults.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Then they will just get it from under the kitchen sink. If they want to create mischief, they'll find a way!
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.
