HoneyBaer: Good idea. There's just one thing I would've included to make it perfect... A reusable rubber lid like people use for pet food that comes in cans.
Jason Miller: Can you use 90 + proof vodka or any other type of alchohol?
John Schlenker: thank you
John Drew: +Robb's Homemade Life Hi ya boss; How long does one of these cartridges burn for? What kind of size pot, could they heat like, say 4 quarts?!?
Madison C Iowa: I have been wondering how to make gel fuel. Is this way as safe for household use as the store kind? I mean is there anything toxic where I would need to worry about fumes?
Bob Ullrich: Great video. I'm wondering approximately how long the size you made would burn? Thanks.
believe it: I don't think you have to worry about toxins being released from the DE but I have heard that 70% rubbing alcohol does let off some toxins in its fumes when burnt. Mehtyl alcohol is better alternative. If you do use rubbing alcohol, make sure it is well vented as you suggested.
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
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.
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
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.
surferd619: add calcium acetate to ethyl alcohol works well to . your ingredients are most likely to be easier to get a hold of ...
Robb's Homemade Life: it was a long time ago, I think I got it on eBay, it was very inexpensive.
Preparedglueguy1: Where did you buy your DE from?
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: 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.
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.
stillwaiting: Just subscribed for my husband . He is interested in all this kind of stuff. Lol
Robb's Homemade Life: thanks Rick!
