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
Matthew Stone: great idea.
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.
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!
George Lee: Where do you get the dichotomous earth from.
3 Hours 3 Days 3 Weeks: Bloody Brilliant!
surferd619: add calcium acetate to ethyl alcohol works well to . your ingredients are
most likely to be easier to get a hold of ...
Peter Piper: Or just use hand sterilizer.
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
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
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
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
