Are you interested in how to make a stink bomb? Well, if so, look no further. We present the most widely used process and materials to make a stink bomb.
Ever bought one of these stink bombs before? If you look inside, you will find how they make the stench of a thousand buttholes.
Most stink bombs are created with either Hydrogen Sulfide or Ammonium Sulfide. Sulfur is the main chemical that gives propane gas, commercial stink bombs, and even rotten eggs their stinkiness. It can be found naturally occurring around volcanic active areas, and is a necessary element needed for human health. Hydrogen sulfide is slightly toxic, however, and should be used with caution. You’re in luck because our first prank product is made out of the Ammonium Sulfide style stench, which is a less toxic product (but still an irritant) than the hydrogen sulfide.
Needed for this version of the prank product – you’ll need to purchase or gather Ammonia, Matches (or sulfur, if you can get it), a Plastic Bottle or other capped container, and some Scissors.
Stink Bomb Recipe
Ammonia is a pungent smelling gas with the chemical compound of NH3. When dissolved in water, it is known as ammonium hydroxide. It is part of the chemical that creates the reaction to make ammonium sulfate (the stinky liquid smell).
Match heads are made out of a mixture of phosphorus and potassium chlorate. When struck on the friction pad, they cause a mixing reaction to ignite the head. You’ll only need one book of matches to complete this stink bomb. This is where you get some of the sulfur from.
You can decide to go out and get the actual sulfur chemical, but box of matches is typically easier which is why we’re showing you that version. This is what causes the stinky-ness.
III. An Empty Container.
This is just something that is non breakable (or at the very least, doesn’t break easy) that can hold the liquid as it reacts over a few days. This MIU Water Bottle should do the trick just nicely. Make sure that you have a cap on it as well!
Ah yes, our trusty scissors. Make sure they’re sharp, and you don’t cut yourself. You really only need these is you are cutting off match heads, and not if you are using the actual sulfur.
Making the Ammonium Sulfide Stink Bomb
It’s pretty simple now really. You take your scissors and cut off the heads of the matches, you can use a book or more. Dump them into your handy dandy water bottle. Add your ammonia, careful not to spill. Cap it, and let it sit for a day or two as the reaction occurs turning it smelly. Uncap and pour where you want it to go!
How It Works:
The hydrogen sulfide in the matches will react with the ammonia, causing Ammonium Sulfide to be formed. Let is sit for a few days. Use with prejudice on your enemies or friends for a prank. Enjoy your homemade sink bomb!
Caution: The fumes are highly flammable and potentially toxic, so only use with direct supervision of parents or other responsible adults. Do NOT mix with bleach. Ammonia and Bleach can react and create chlorine gas – a highly toxic gas that can kill you!
