    could you use this to make tens machine gel pads

    How mutch water would I need if I only had 12 grams of the mix

    I love mythbusters but I agree with Blacksmith Spader.I still wouldn't do it unless it were to save my life.

    I thought Mythbusters said to not try this at home!!!

    right, but at the same time, we all know that they really mean... "DON'T TRY THE ONES THAT WE KNOW WILL KILL YOU... at home." They just show us what to expect first... I love that show...

    yes, it is water based so it will desolve if it comes in to contact with liqids

    yes if it is not cold it could melt. when u r not using it just put it in the fridge
