Step 2: Cut the hard part away

You must cut away the hard part of the seed, so cut with knife.
We need feather-like rest of it.
take wall insulation, the pink fiber glass, and rub two handfuls (wearing rubber gloves) together until you have a pile of fine glass fibers small enough for itch powder, if i remember correctly, adding ground pepper makes it better
Hey Frank, I do custom cable installs and you are an evil evil person for suggesting that. That crap is horrific for DAYS. It gets in your bed and is in everything.
I was thinking the same thing! That's sick in the head if you ask me. Who would tell someone to crush fiberglass for an itching powder. Peoples stupidity amazes me. I'd press charges on someone if I found out they did that to me. That's dangerous as hell!
not to mention -- insulation is spun (or some other method) to keep it from floating like dust... Grind it up and you'll be breathing inorganic glass.... Your future fibrosis will thank you :/<br/><br/><hr/>Columbus -- to get fiberglass out of your skin... Very Hot water (as hot as you can handle) and a wash rag. Brush your skin hard with the rag in <strong>one direction away/down the body.</strong> It has done the trick for me every time I've gotten glass (or carbon from carbon fiber) itching in my skin :P I also keep and wash exposed clothing separately.<br/>
i heard you can spread elmers glue and wait till it dries, then peel it off
yea you can it fun but put it on thick it get hard to get off it is on thin...
aside from insulation.... working up on the roof gets ya too (if you happen to be lazy, and squat/crouch/lean/lay .... basically if you are not standing 100% of the time. the elbows are the worst!
My solution was to stop doing that line of work. :)
haha -- fair enough :P Or get someone else to do the <em>fun</em> stuff :)<br/><br/>In my case, its using (rather, sanding) fiberglass mat occasionally :P<br/>
What do you mean by "sanding" the mat?
I was <strong>wondering</strong> how this instructable could take a positive spin.<br/><br/>Thanks for the tip, treb.<br/>
well that's exactly what they used to sell in spencer's gifts, a small packet of glass fibers mixed with pepper that they call itch powder
Also can we crush them with our hands????
Does it actually work????<br>
Where do maple trees grow? I am in California. Is there any here?
<p>Same! Where do you find them?</p>
Also, is there any alternative?
Crush some Sodium carbonate crystals into a fine powder.
it sounds familiar, but what is it?
...
no seriously I wanted an actual answer.
...?
sodium carbonate is alternative of maple seed or what??
I want to know what it is.
There's this brand-new thing called the 'Internet', it's great, you can look up virtually anything! On this internet is a thing called Google, which can search the Whole internet, and a thing called Wikipedia which has information of virtually everything! Even Sodium Carbonate!<br /> <br /> <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_carbonate" rel="nofollow">en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_carbonate</a><br /> <br /> Seriously. Use your head. Figure it out.<br />
Incase you don't know how to open links, Sodium Carbonate is, as Wikipedia says:<br /> <br /> <b>Sodium carbonate</b> (also known as <b>washing soda</b>, <b>soda crystals</b> or <b>soda ash</b>), Na<sub>2</sub>CO<sub>3</sub>, is a sodium salt of carbonic acid. It most commonly occurs as a crystalline heptahydrate, which readily effloresces to form a white powder, the monohydrate; and is domestically well known for its everyday use as a water softener.<br /> <br /> <br />
<p>can u tell me where can i buy this from like spacfic store i live in nyc </p>
Do you what else Itches that Lie stuff they put around horsetracks OMG IT BURNS Just go take some of that with gloves and it will stick to there clothes Anyways LAST DAY OF SCHOOL tomorrow and I have a maple tree in my front yard,thanks for the Idea
Lye, or &quot;caustic soda&quot; causes chemical burns. Do NOT use that on people or animals!
The maple leaves work as a mechanical irritant, the tiny &quot;hairs&quot; are basically wood slivers. The rosehips method is a chemical irritant that chemically irritates the skim (similar to chemical burns and poison ivy, jellyfish stings, etc).<br><br>For those who were making fun of &quot;SirRon's Toy&quot;, she is in the BDSM lifestyle and this is the sort of thing that....excites some people. Your mileage may very.<br><br>Using itching powder is not against the law in and of itself. (cannot find a single hit on Google referencing it) You can be charged with criminal intent if it can be proven that you were intending to cause harm to someone (over dosing, using a substance they are known to be allergic to). Making someone itch is not intending harm, just like marking someone's face with a sharpie when they passout drunk. If either person has an unintentional allergic reaction, that was not the jokester's intent, so it is not considered malicious.
you can also make it from a dead red rose and boiling water. <br> <br>let the rose die, a small green fruitlike thing will form inside <br>use scisorrs and a toothpick and scoop into a small paper cup. <br>sit next to a cup of boiling water for five or 15 mins. or until fluffy. <br>DO NOT TOUCH WITH YOUR BARE HANDS. <br>sit cup of fluffy stuff in a sunny area. <br>let it turn to a powder and sprinkle on something or someone. <br>Make sure this doesnt get into eyes,mouth, or internaly <br>have fun!!!!!!
imade my own itching just for a losy no good cheating man....i caught him at another females house so i wanted to do something evil to him his car was park under a tree so it was easy not to be seen and he cant lock his doors i took it upon myself to take the powder and spread it all through his car paying extra attention to steering wheel cuz when he starts itching he'll want to scratch so that spread it even more....LOL&nbsp; i waited till later that night at his football practice to watch him....omg he couldnt do anything but set around and scratch i was&nbsp;in the stands laughing my&nbsp;butt off.&nbsp;&nbsp;
thats dirty as hell but extreamley funny
I wonder if my ex would like for me to &quot;spice up&quot; his stuff before returning it?? I mean in honor of the miraculous recovery his deceased wife made from that aneurysm that killed her 3 years ago...she's doing very well, considering she's been &quot;dead&quot; for 3 years. you think he squirmed when I found out about her and a whole other wife he never even mentioned????wonder how much he'd squirm now. <br /> I would never intentionally hurt another&nbsp; person, I'm just working it out in my fantasy.
Are you <em>SURE</em> this works;)<br/>
