Biggest Smoke Bomb

Biggest Smoke Bomb





How to make one
  1. Buy potassium nitrate (saltpeter) at your local drug store or hardware store. How much you buy is based on how many smoke bombs you want to make.
  2. Get some sugar (preferably dark brown as it makes the smoke thicker).
  3. cardboard tube (longer lasts longer) or a container with a lid.
  4. Put on your safety gear (gloves, goggles, and filter mask).
  5. Grind the saltpeter and sugar separately into fine powder. It must be a fine powder. Because these materials are flammable, you have to be very careful to avoid sparks while grinding.
  6. Mix the powders together, three parts saltpeter and two parts sugar by weight.
  7. Put in a tablespoon of baking soda.
  8. Pour the mixed powder into the soda can.
  9. Get a fuse or piece of string soaked in lighter fluid.
  10. Stick the fuse or string in the top of the can with some sticking out to light - it should be long enough to give you time to leave the vicinity.
  11. Place the bomb somewhere strategic, and light the fuse.
  12. Have fun, and be careful.
