Default Drano, tin foil, bottle.....true??

Note on Fakebook about kids putting Drano, 'Tinfoil', water in a plastic bottle and leaving it around to explode if disturbed.....will supposedly take hands/arms off.....

what she meant by 'tinfoil' is not explained....I would imagine 'aluminum foil'....would be used.....


any possible truth to that ???

Probably a video on it somewhere on youtube. But yes, balls of tin foil, Draino, water, inside a 2 liter bottle go boom.

You don't have very long before they explode. Not that you couldn't get hurt, but it is along the same lines as putting dry ice and watercin a soda bottle. Same result..

I believe the chemical reaction creates hydrogen gas, which is flammable.

Let's hope the idiots doing it find out how quick something might happen.

I dunno, back 1/2 century+++ I was into all about smokeless powder speeds, and reloading, and then into making my own version of DIE NO MITE!!!! in detonation behind a woodpile......

and using old portable TV sets as targets in middle of some field/hillside.....one old Philco blew up to the point of leaving nothing but the metal hoop left, all the rest was toast...GAWN!!!!

Almost.
Dry ice doesn't spew caustic drain cleaner all over the place.

Sodium aluminate is also formed by the action of sodium hydroxide on elemental aluminium which is an amphoteric metal. The reaction is highly exothermic once established and is accompanied by the rapid evolution of hydrogen gas. The reaction is sometimes written as:

2 Al + 2 NaOH + 2 H2O → 2 NaAlO2 + 3 H2

Source Source


Sodium hydroxide is the active ingredient in Drano.

We used to throw the dry ice ones into the hedges. The bits of plastic bottle would sever solid branches thicker than a human finger. It's not something to be trifled with, and it's sure as **** not something you want your kids playing around with.

True, but I was merely talking about the exploding bottle due to the pressure. And of course the pressure is created in two entirely different ways.

This is more opinion than science, but I always thought dry ice made for a more violent explosion. We speculated that it was the extremely low temp of the CO2 that made the plastic harder, more brittle, and more prone to catastrophic failure than warmer methods.

There was one guy who would drill a hole in the bottle cap and install a Schrader valve in it. IIRC (and there's certainly no guaranty of that), the bottle could take between 90 and 100 psi before it failed. If you filled it just shy of it's bursting point, it would bounce like a super ball.

Pool chlorine , wrapped in tin foli pellets, plus brake fluid in a bottle does the same.

As far as the Liquid Plumbr/Drano with foil creating an explosion, I did experiment with this as a kid...

We tried to make a "Hindenburg" by taking a glass soda bottle and mixing the two components and placing a regular party balloon on the lip of the bottle...thus filling it up with gas. Then you could, theoretically, rig up a fuse, pinch off the balloon and light it while sending it up in the air. The "Hindenburg"

My buddy had read about it somewhere. Again, this is going back about 25 years, but we could never get it to work. The vapor of the drain cleaner would always deteriorate the balloon, and/or there was still residue from the drain cleaner on the lip of the bottle causing the balloon to give out. We were kids, we weren't very careful about it.

That's why I said that I believe the chemical reaction creates Hydrogen Gas.

At any rate, we were kids just screwing around. We never sealed off a bottle to see if it would explode...
