BE CAREFUL…. kids are putting Drano, tin foil and a little water in plastic drink bottles. They are capping it up and leaving it on lawns, in mail boxes, in gardens, on driveways, etc. Beware and do NOT pick it up, with the intention of putting it in the rubbish. You may never make it!
If the bottle is picked up and shaken, even just a little, a chemical reaction begins to take place. In about 30 seconds or less it can build up sufficient gas to explode with enough force to cause serious harm. The liquid that comes out of the explosive is boiling hot as well.
Be extremely careful when you pick up any plastic bottles that you may find lying in your yards or in the gutter, etc.
What to look out for – a plastic bottle with a cap, a little Drano, a little water and a small piece of foil. If you disturb it by moving it, BOOM!! You could be left with no fingers and other serious injuries to your face, eyes, etc.
People are putting Drano and tin foil in plastic bottles and leaving them in yards. When picked up the motion activates the solution and the bottle explodes, blowing off fingers and otherwise maiming people.
