Tips to Make a Homemade Pepper Spray – Part 2
Step Two – Be Brave and Try the Spicy Mix
This is the step of the brave, of those who trust in what they do, of heroes and you will have to try it, but be very careful to test it. Simply pick a very small pinch of the mixture, and I emphasize very small and put it on the tip of your tongue; if it is spicy enough, you will begin to tear, and congrats, you already have the base of the pepper spray ready.
Step Three – Liquid Part
Now we will prepare lemon juice, only juice, and we must avoid having pulp, we need the very liquid of lemons, so squeeze it as many times as necessary, and do not skip it and do not mix with water or anything like; Now add it to the base of dry spice that we prepared in the previous step. It should be as liquid as we can, so that at the time of shooting it against the aggressor, it can easily leave the spray that we will fill with our homemade mix.
A drop of lemon in an eye stings like a real barbarity and if we add it with the dry spicy base, you can imagine the extreme effect. We already know that the effects of pepper spray are very strong on an aggressor, even if they are homemade
Step Four – Chlorine
It is an extra ingredient for more powerful effect. Once the spicy liquid mixture is created, I advise you to put the icing with a few droplets of chlorine, which will give make your pepper spray more powerful for the reason that pure chlorine is highly irritating. We are adding a percentage of liquid that will contribute to the mixture and it is more dissolved, but without losing properties, on the contrary, adding more power to the itching effect. Chlorine can easily be found in any store that is dedicated to cleaning pools.
Step Five – Mix Very Well
We already have the lemon juice mixed with the dry spicy base and a few drops of liquid chlorine, now it is necessary to mix everything well and put it in a small bottle of spray. You can use a small old glass bottle that is empty, but you must make sure that it is completely dry and empty, as we cannot contaminate the mixture. If you do not find any at home, you can get it in a store of articles for cleaning or at a drugstore.
