Wasps aren't harmless. One stung me in the butt once for no good reason.
Ow, sounds nasty. A friend once got bitten by a European wasp, and he came up in this massive rash...
LOL I thought you said your friend bit the wasp!
Ha ha, good one, that would be truly weird....
I've been stung, they're extremely unlikely to going to sting without good reason.
Depends, some wasps will go after you if you make too much noise.
That's what I did.
Ouch. I feel sorry for you then.
I got stung for farting in the same room as it.
You're sure it could smell you?
well, at least the wasp had a sense of justice, i mean, you had just farted in the same room, was it just gonna let that go unpunished?

LOL, can't find film canisters any more!
Perhaps you could try asking at a camera/ film development place, they may let you have some. It was at a shop who's name sounds like Kojak where I got empty disposable cameras which I then gave myself a big capacitor shock with - don't do that, probably not great for your heart.
Yeah... Your "Kojac" was actually "Kodak"
That certainly does sound like Kojak.
Pill bottles work too
It probably just boosted your heart rate and added an extra 10 years to your life. :D

whats the size limit on the container?
I don't know, but I would assume as long as it isn't a bucket and you have enough of the ingredients it should still work.
How big were you thinking of going?
the inside of a marker, though i think that's too small
A smaller pop but as long as you can get the chemicals to mix properly and build up enough pressure it should work.

you are crazy my friend. but that is awesome
Freakin awesome, I love how u dont need gunPowder :). Anyone try putting paint instaed of powder for paintball Gnades?
I think paint may be too heavy and viscous to work really well, better to try with watery ink or food colouring
maybe waterproof dyes will do, but it might put out the fuse.
hold on there.

it might, "put out" the fuse?

as I read, it doesn't seem there is any fire involved in this Instructable at all. Hopefully I have not misunderstood and made myself look like a total tosser.

I do like the idea of waterproof dyes or food colouring though...

I must make my own version of this with minor changes so I can take credit for your work! *muhahha* and what not. cheers.

VERY nice work, the thing works perfectly, but is there a way to make the delay longer? I've made several bombs but I need a way to shake it and get some kind of distance before it goes off. Fantastic I'ble anyways! :D
longer string :D
Hmm, awesome. I'll try it with a friend. Does it work with a M&M's container?
It should do, although the vinegar may leak through the carboard.
you should do the same thing, but instead of vinigear, use drano, and instead of baking soda, use aluminum foil balls... it makes a big bang...
And put it in a childproof pill bottle...
instead use drano and put gas in the plastic bag. B CAREFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(THROW IMMEADITLY OR YOU WILL LOOSE UR HAND AND MOST OF UR ARM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
NO coz u can get arrested for that.
Cool, thanks. This is creative, thumbs up! Also, with a m&m container, would it be wise to hold the bottom of the tube and point it at the victim after shaking it, like a gun? I mean, the container is pretty long (3 3/4 inches long with an 1 inch diameter).
Protip: Baking powder includes the acid. Replace the vinegar with water.
Yep, in some cases that can have a reaction that occurs slightly faster with a high volume of gas.
mattias law6 years ago
if the bag is too confusing i came up with an idea. make a hole in the film cannister lid then put the string through the hole. keep the hole small though. then get the circle of cardboard that the baking soda sits on and put a hole in it that is off centre. then put the string coming out of the bottom of the cannister lid that you made and put it through that hole and tie it off at the end. then pour vinegar into the bottom, put cardboard on top of vinegar and put baking soda on top of that then close the cannister lid when you want to release it pull the string which will cause the cardboard to work like a valve. cardboard may not be the best though, something waterproof would be better hope this lengthy description helps

imthereal6 years ago
if there is card board between the vinigar and the baking soda, how do they mix? or is it in beneath and above the cardboard so that it launches powder everywhere?
The vinegar and the bicarbonate of soda which is in the corner of the plastic bag go in. Then the cardboard circle is placed on top of them and finally you put the powder in on top of that.
ah i get it. thanks :)

Mauwi7 years ago
I actually figured a way to have it so you pull a string and it sets it off like a trip mine kind of. What you do is have th string going through the bottom of the canister and u have it attached to a plastic/cardboard circle the size of the inside which is in the middle as a seperator. U attach the string to the left or the right of the circle. Then u but the baking soda on top and the vineagar on bottom. Pull the string and the circle tips releasing the powder in the vineagar. Bam. And to get the pepper to spray out you just add a piece of plastic on top of the baking soda and and put ur pepper, flour, spice, etc. on the plastic and put the lid on. Thats my version of the pepper grenade. I know it probably wasn't that clear. Maybe ill just make an instructable if its ok with you Loosewire.
Mauwi7 years ago
I was wondering How would you make it so if you attached like a string and pulled it then it would explode. Kind of like a trip mine. Got any ideas?

Sounds like your lid was not on properly, make sure you get a good seal.

salbabob7 years ago
maybe you could use a glue stick by taking out the glue and putting the bicarbonate in the little moving box and the vinegar in the bottom of the stick, then you could lower the baking soda in to the vinegar and start the reaction that way.
Yes,as long as the seal between the outer and inner tubes is air-tight.

Make sure the gases aren't escaping and the reaction has enough force to blow the top off.

Loosewire; SOE Operative (author)  binna7 years ago
Oh that doesn't matter, I don't know why I typed that.
makoman117 years ago
I used your advice but it didn't work. The cardboard would not stop slipping into the vinegar and would not stay in place. I used wax to seal it but it worked too well,it would not go through it. I also have another question, what is the string for? What can I do to keep the piece from slipping? Can you help me with these problems? Thanks
It sounds to me like you haven't cut the carboard just right, if you make it about 1/2mm to 1mm extra in radius (I would recommend using a compass) then that should help seal it. The string is used so that you don't lose the cap when it pops open.
makoman117 years ago
Thank you very much.
asda6537 years ago
Great instructable, I may very well use it soon unlike the most which are way out of my technical ability range. Question, do you know of any chemicals that could combust with the energy from the soda/vinegar reaction so as to form a flash grenade? I go airsofting with my friends once in awhile.
Thanks! No, I am afraid that I don't know of anything that could make a flash, you will probably have to ask the pyrotechnical experts on that one.
Aw, darn. I found another use though. It's winter right. Ice everywhere. Use salt as a payload and there you are a nice ice melter.
Nice!! Good thinking!
makoman117 years ago
I have a question. I know you said to cut a piece of cardboard the circumference of the canister but then what do you do with that piece?
Oh, you put it on top of the vinegar and the bag of bicarb to seal the canister and stop the powder stopping the reaction.

mine isn't working I did every thing u said to do. any suggestions?
You may not be using the correct ratio of soda to vinegar, you may be using the wrong type of chemicals, you may not be sealing the canister totally or it may contain a hole or you may not be shaking it enough.
OK but I know i used the right chemicals and there was no holes and i even hammered it shut
what do you put pepper in it?
Yes, it makes a nice cloud of powder.
Sorry, I meant where.
Oh, in the top after you put the cardboard in.
Bilsy287 years ago
Can u reuse the canister? Good instructions by the way really helped me, u should definitely make a vid.
Yes, you can reuse the film canister as may times as you like but unfortunatly after a few times the cardboard gets a bit soggy (if you haven't already lost it!) and I really do need a video, it has been a year and i still haven't done it!
$T.ars3nic7 years ago
try to put a m80 in middle of the canister fill the rest of canister with fine graded pepper, that will work trust me.
ramses8 years ago
i have not tried this yet, but i don't think it will blow up. i've tried this and turned the film canister upside down, and it shot like 2 feet in the air. for a contact "explosive" fill a tennis ball with strike anywhere match heads. or if you have a death wish mix up nail polish remover with 30% hydrogen peroxcide and battery acid. oh and to make sure that it is extra suicidal make sure that the reaction takes place above 10C. and then chew on the powder after it has dried. detonation velocity above 5000 fps. ouch.
ok, i haven't tried this but i do know he's not goin for a real 'grenade' type thing, more along the lines of a grenade version mitsubishi, you know the eggs filled with blinding powder used by ninjas? However i doubt this would work in a real life situation since people move alot and theres no way this could be left in one position with out mixing and blowin it up on your sides or in the bag its bein stored in.
it does work
as a pay load, has anyone tried 2 use paint? im pretty sure itd be cool.
i have a theory. Maybe alcohol and chlorine... Serch it on utube if u must... the reaction is like vinegar&bicarb:alcohol&chlorine = 1:100. Or ... you ... know... maybe not... just a thought.
oh yes a very powerful explosion
yeah it could work great but the paint could seep through the card and damp it too much.
resophonic8 years ago
Pure Awesome!
can anyone explain why you need the string?
the string is there so u dont lose the cap
yo, how big is the explosion, cause i wanted to throw one at a car that keeps and doing burnouts past our house at night
you could put paint powder in and aim it at the cars!! :P
do you have the vid cause that would be awsome
it depends but it could but it is usually a few metres for me
ingnore 'but it could'
so you dont lose the top
badrang48 years ago
oh. thank you
badrang48 years ago
hey i was wonderin if i can fill with less vinigar?
well i suppose you could, but then you would have to use less bicarbonate of soda and that could make the force too little to blow the top off and then you would have wasted it, but it may work-it is all about proportions.

motorbreath8 years ago
lol these r so much fun once a Park Ranger was walking down right near my bomb site and it peppered him. That didnt end well
i can imagine it didnt :P
Awesome, very well done. I tried it and I messed it up, because when I was tracing the canister on the cardboard with an exacto knife and I nicked the canister a few times not too deep, but your grenade had enough power to actually tear a hole in the bottom of the canister where the small slices were and blow the bag with the baking soda halfway through the hole. now thats pretty powerful. I made a big mistake though, I used Balsamic vinigar and the odor almost made me puke, that plus the stinging stench of Pepper, finer black pepper, garlic salt, and lemon pepper (with garlic and onions) I used. Why I did this for the first one I made as a practice one, I have no clue, but it was awful. And the best part is that you can have basicaly anything shoot out of it. good job

the plastic bag goes in first because it has the bicarb in, then the cardboard circle and then the powder/pellets you want to spray

and as for the pringles idea if it does get too big like i'm sure it will you might end up with a metal can bottom flying at you, not that i'm anti-explosives i'm just anti-shrapnel
the pringles idea didnt work with bicarb but i did make a motar with one but that was with explosives
you should make an instructable on the mortar idea ,i would like to read it
yeah i might

i wonder if there is a way to mix the bicarb and vinegar that allows you to not have to carry it around carefully, so it is more like a grenade
there is, i saw an airsoft grenade online that used bicarb and vinegar and had a compartment that keep the bicarb separate until you push a plunger, but i made one and the bbs didnt come out so i will order one and work out how it works, and then i will tell you.
awsome, thanks

you can use a tennis ball canister and scale up the recipe and you would get a freakin war-grade explosive. you colud make digging holes alot faster or bery them in a sand box at your local park and add an extra long fuse and watch the sand fly
like mines!!

nice... I did something along those lines in 5th grade... except, i filled the bottom 3rd with vinegar, then wax paper that i sealed with scotch tape (PITFA), then baking soda... then the top had baby powder... so when u shook and threw, 5 sec l8r a little poof of baby powder came out... lol i know it was lame

i had a question- mine took about a 2 and ahalph min. to blow! after about 10 sec.i thought i thought it was broke. but then 230 later it blew. do u no why?
Or you didnt have the correct proportions of chemicals or they didnt totally mix
either you had a REALLY tiny leak or the plastic was doing too well at protecting its baking soda
I HAVE IT for a bb grenade you're gonna need just one extra thing. You make a little scoop out of stiff material instead of the plastic bag cone. Then you need to inser that and bend the scoop so it comes out of the top. The scoop holds the two chemicals apart until you're ready to throw, then instead of shaking, either try to pour the scoop throughh the cap or thrust up on the scoop so it is violently forced in to the bb chamber and the scoop either breaks or drops its contents. Sorry no pictures but if you dont understand something just post more. I will have pictures soon! for use in bb wars at a slight distance, these things can hurt if used well or with different chemicals for a more violent chemical reaction. STAY AWAY FROM THESE you can drop it on your friend but im no liable for a bunch of bb-sized bruises and niether is Loosewire

what does it do?
it pops open and propells the pepper out
do u think this thing could effectively shoot airsoft bb's?
ya read my comment up ther at the top but the problem with it is that u cant really use it in a airsoft war because it has to remain upright so that it doesnt blow until when u want it 2 detonate.
wait i just had a hella good idea about how 2 make it into like an airsoft grenade launcher tho ill get back 2 u maybe with an instructable if it works
SO DID I AND I CANT FIND ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT SO HERE GOES *screams in pain as stabbed by scissors* oops wait a few days because right now i DONT want to touch scissors
yeah i tried it. it works prity well
yeah i done it nothing happend can u tell me how much stuff 2 put in? cheers:-)
it usually works with 2 parts vinegar to 1 part bicarbonate of soda

This looks cool
wait 2 things. im new so idont no how to just post a comment. this is a reply or somthing can someone help me out and also this grenade thingy is sick. I amped it up and used like a huge fat tupperware and filled it with hella flour and (wearing safety goggles) hella airsoft bbs and it was extreemmmmee awsomness.
how much vinegar and bicarb did you have to use?
im not really sure but a lot. the thing is, u can tell when uv used 2 much cuz some of it doesnt detonate so when you look at the container after its blown, thers still some bicarb left in it. i think i baisically went by ur rule tho, fill about 1/4 with viniger and the plastic bag cone should be filled about half way with bicarb. i also think the detonation time on the larger ones is about 3 to 4 seconds im not sure y.
ooooo tx im an idiot
hehe bbs that sounds hella tight

well you get a plastic bag cut the corner off and fill the corner with bicarbinate of soda. then push the corner of the bag in to the canister so the open end is facing upward. then cut a piece of card to the size of the insde of the canister and push the card in so it covers the hole in the film canister.

It was cool, i shook it up and placed it on its lid, and he canister shot up like a rocket.
lol loose the string,baking soda,vingar. Replace with Cannonfuse, flashpowder and acitone mix then (dried into the film can with fuse on it.) Then light and throw ...someware ;-)... BE CAREFUL (dangerous duh)
knexer18 years ago
another container that you could use instead of a film canister is a plastic m and m's container (the tube-shaped ones). they are better because they are bigger, and there isn't a problem with the cap getting lost

ok then please say how it goes and be careful!!!
b-dog1328 years ago
so is this supposed to cover ur emeny in pepper or wat?? u can just get a glass bottle of vinger and add baking sode close and run it makes a cool bang and glass everwhere
have you tried that??
mooman8 years ago
i think i may have found a way to pull the string and plug the hole jus get like a lil piece of clay-doh or clay w/e and attack it to the string and then pull and make a small hole on the lid to where the clays big enuff to not fit and the string can come out
mmm..? i suppose it could work could you try it at tell me how it goes!!
thats not a pepperbomb.... why dont you just make an m-80 or better and put it in a can with the top cut off with a buncha lil screws and shit in there
because it is not an explosive bomb which means it is safe, easy to make and fun!!!!!
it could kill a old geriactric barstard. they culdnt stop sneazing and then die of a lack of breath or sumfin like that
ha ha ha

i throwed mine at my cuz it was sooooo funny i used alot of pepper he was sennzing and laugh at the same time it was like hahahahachoooohahahahahchoooochahahahahahahahahahchooooo!!...................lol

The string is just there so that you dont lose the cap...
Loosewire; SOE Operative (author)  e13378 years ago
yes but you could cut a hole in the top and put string in there!!!!!
how could you make it so when u pull a string a divider separates and they mix?
you would need a hole in the top and then once the string was pulled you would have to re-seal the whole or it would not work
he said spill not spit
sorry it was a mistake

i am developing more ideas at the moment but this time with explosives
Stupidkid2000 he said spill and yarn and string are differnt one is all fuzzy and loose string is made more tightly they may be same matterials though. but hey this is cool untill your bag leaks and blows pepper and viniger in your face it wasnt me my friend did it and blew right in his face lol.

that is right
the trick is to pack the powder not too tightly...yet not loosely......and an empty deodorant canister will be "ideal".....just try experimenting

"3. Cut some string ('yarn' for you Americans)" - lol.. you don't think Americans know what string is? or do you think we don't have string..only yarn? and yes it is different... lol
i dont pretend to be a string/yarn expert but wtf is the differance?both will do the job
Loosewire; SOE Operative (author) 8 years ago
It depends on how much powder you put it
j.w_lewis9 years ago
how big is the radius of the pepper.
this is pretty cool.I made a project really simular to this except i filled the canister half way with viniger.then i dipped a kleenex in right to where it still wasnt touching the niniger the i put baking soda and quick dry cement :)
Loosewire; SOE Operative (author) 9 years ago
sorry. i did not mean to offend any one but yes it is string
That looks more like string than yarn to me.

although there are many variations, yours is very clever by including powder. Just an idea, why doesnt someone come up with a baking soda and vinager grenade that can be activated by string / pin etc. but you can tilt it any way?
