What do you think about this video?

Robb's Homemade Life: George, Google is not letting me reply, but I got my DE from ebay but you can also get it on amazon

bobinmissouri: good video there i sub to ya btw i made this i used a quart paint can (new can) put in the powder and added the alcohol when i get done using it i put paint lid on can and put it out it does work and last a long time i get over a hour on burn time before i have to add alcohol to it

Peter Piper: Or just use hand sterilizer.

shirley zolman: hey I have 4 gallons of this stuff (DE) glad to have a new ideal on how to use it I use it for killing spiders and ants and all insects. Thanks!

JC Wood: Shirley is correct about the killing of pests with (DE). You can find out how on other youtube sites. For not being a poison it kills fleas in the carpets and furniture like nothing I've ever seen before.

surferd619: add calcium acetate to ethyl alcohol works well to . your ingredients are most likely to be easier to get a hold of ... 

3 Hours 3 Days 3 Weeks: Bloody Brilliant!

George Lee: Where do you get the dichotomous earth from.

Matthew Stone: great idea.

TheDarkalkymist: the dichotomous earth is absorbing the alcohol not chemically reacting to it so in the problem is air infiltrating the storage container, otherwise would suggest making gelled alcohol for fuel but it is higher costs

Robb's Homemade Life: Joe, Thanks for the comment. I think the fuel has some interesting properties, I am thinking if sandwiching it between cylinders of fine mesh screen and making a mantle type heater.

stillwaiting: Just subscribed for my husband . He is interested in all this kind of stuff. Lol

Joe Large: Robb, started thinking might be good light for arts/fartsy stuff. Candle type light inside of a lantern etc. Just a thought..

Robb's Homemade Life: Hello YouTubers. If you like my DIY videos, can I ask a favor? I am trying to increase the number of subscribers to my channel. If you ever go to any online forums and think the members might like the type of frugal, DIY low tech goofball videos I have on my channel, can you leave a link of my channel? The other day Mr Rawles over at survivalblog ( dot) com left a link to my flea control video and I got a lot of new subscribers. Any helpful criticism is also welcome. Thanks everybody.

Frank Imperiali: Hi you xan also purchase the earth at homedepot and lowes some markets even have it in small boxes have a BLESSED DAY I THINK WALMART HAS it

starlite2991: copy where?

Robb's Homemade Life: Hello david, you are right, the non food grade is the type used in pool filtration. However, if a person wanted to do some experimenting you can purchase the food grade on ebay - I see sellers listing 4 ounces which is a lot as it weighs little, for about $3.50 which includes shipping. there are many uses for this material. It is one of the best pre filtration mediums in the world.

leaveitalone: lol, getting away from the computer is the hard part!

Robb's Homemade Life: Until the alcohol is gone

Porch412: How long will this store?

Robb's Homemade Life: thanks Rick!

Goin Rving: I wonder if you added petroleum jelly it would make it burn longer before having to add more alcohol and keep the powder from drying out so much.

GasNBullets: It's inexpensive & it's cheap!!! Hahaha great idea. Did you get the diotomacious earth from a pool supply?

Rick Reade: Thanks.

SoulSurvivorX2: Very informative video.. Thanks for sharing and for the entry. Good luck in the contest :)

Vince Hawk: real cool

Robb's Homemade Life: Thanks for the tip steelhead!

Chef Buck: pretty cool...love the brick/sink set up

DreamerHind: Hi. Diatomaceous earth is approved for use in food, but poses an inhalation hazard because it can cause silicosis and wearing a mask is required. I would burn this outside only with a mask.

USMC65UH34D: Great information on the Diatomaceous earth but where do you purchase it in quantities like you showed.I enjoyed the video and the story you told in the write up. Thanks

pagelock5: Why did you copy mrhulot101?

Rick Reade: How long does that take, wise guy?

Bruce Forster: Another way to make your own Sterno: Find some Hand Sanitizer GELL that is 70% or more Isopropyl Alcohol. When one of my Sterno cans is 50% used I stir in the hand Sanitzer. I mix the sanitizer & the sterno equally. It works just as well if not better than the original sterno. OR, you can simply re-use the sterno can with just the gell hand sanitizer. Very effective and CHEAP!

Robb's Homemade Life: you're welcome.

Robb's Homemade Life: I agree I would use this only outside. I just used it one time inside to see if it worked.

Lane Scanner: Robb, good informative video! Great idea. Just wondering....the D.E. that places like Lowe's and TSC sells is mixed with a Calcium Bentonite Suppliment. Is this the type you used, or is this type safe to burn? It's cheap enough at those places, if indeed it is the correct type. (ex: 4 lbs. for $8). If this type will work I'm on it! The ideas by others about a "lamp" of some sort, and your small heater idea with this setup is worth trying also.! Thanks again! Subscribed!! J.

Robb's Homemade Life: Thanks for the opportunity.

pagelock5: Haha it's deleted :3 But you did copy a few lines of his paragraph.

Robb's Homemade Life: Thanks dave, it is an interesting idea.

Phantasmos: Thanks for the tip

David N. Goodchild: Might be a good stove for small boats . . .doesn't take up much room certainly.

Robb's Homemade Life: Rick, it depends on how much alcohol is used. I did see how long it took to boil a certain volume of water, i did not do any experiments to see how long x anount of alcohol will burn.

Robb's Homemade Life: Thanks for the tip Bruce!

Robb's Homemade Life: Hello, I do not have enough data to recommened it to be used indoors.

Rick Reade: How long will this concoction burn?

Robb's Homemade Life: hello lane, not sure about the Lowes, in any case, I would make sure I burned this in a well ventilated area to be on the safe side. Thanks for watching.

David N. Goodchild: Very interesting . . . as to where to purchase it, I think pool supply places carry it for use in pool filters

Robb's Homemade Life: it was a long time ago, I think I got it on eBay, it was very inexpensive.

rick frazier: I tried his recipe and in the amounts he suggested it burned about 14 mins, not bad for the small amount, i used kerosene to the mixed rather then alcohol and got a burn time of 24 minutes my pot boiled in about the same time 15 mins 31 secs, ... keeping my mixture in mason jars in the basement sealed tight . I'll test it in a year to see if it keeps. Im confident it will have no issues lighting. great video game me project ideas. I subscribed. lets see the next thing your set my time too.lol

Dave McMullen: I wonder how this would work ifyou wer using Activated charcoal, instead of diatamacious earth. If it would burn slowly enough abd conbsistantly enolugh, I'm guessing it would be more efficient since it would completely burn. Activated charcol is available very cheaply as filter material for fish tanks. Finely ground in a coffee grinder, and mixed with honey, it makes an excellent medicine for many applications, bopth internal and external.
