A Real Nasty Stink Bomb!

About: Tinkerer, hackster and prankster. Hit me up on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/kipkayvideos/ Thanks for checking out my Instructables!
Here's something from me that's a bit different, a stink bomb with some nasty ingredients and a surprise ending. I could not find one on Instructables so I decided to add this one.

Step 1: What You Need...

1. Human hair, or if you don't have enough like me, use your cat or dog.
2. Big rubber bands like you find on broccoli. They work great because they usually have borccoli residue on them.
3. A bunch of sparklers, the bigger the better for the inside and a regular one for the fuse.
4. A sheet of newspaper
5. Matches or a lighter

Step 2: Build It...

Get yourself a good handful of hair, either from yourself or a willing particpant. Crush up a few sparklers and put them in a safe storage spot. Now lay out the piece of paper, add the sparkler bits, and the hair and roll up the newspaper tightly and secure with two rubber bands.

Step 3: Fuse It

Cut a small hole in one end of the package and insert a sparkler, lay it on the ground and light the sparkler.

TIP:Put on your gas mask.

This is a very basic but really effective stinker. The hair, combined with the sulfur from the sparklers and the rubber is putrid. Have fun, Be Safe!

    First I question your thinking in trying this inside in the first place.But if want to try it again you can a great stink using (organic rubber) bands that are normaly a light tan flesh color.If your not sure pull it between your fingers and it will smell like the inside of an athelets shoe.It will stink bad.If its an oil based rubber it will smell like a tire or new inner tube.Also these fumes might be dangerous to some people.Try not to break the sparkles up any more than you can help.I also would avoid using printed newspaper,craft paper or an old paper grocery bag is better.You want to gross your friends out and not really hurt them do we?And finally again this can be VERY dangerous inside any building and always put something between you an any thing that might go wrong...even if its just eye protection.

    do you have to use the broccoli rubber bands or can you use a sheet of rubber and stick it inside the stink bomb.
