How to Make a High-Powered Aerosol Can Bomb with Household Items

This bomb is far better than any of the simple bombs on this website and all the equipment can be bought in a supermarket. So, have fun!

Step 1 Gathering equipment

First, you will need to get all the things that you are going use. These things will be: an aerosol can, tin foil and sparklers.

Tip

  • I have tested many types of aerosol cans, but Black and Gold's Air Freshener stands out from the others, by far! It creates a more impressive explosion. You can buy it from almost any supermarket and it is very cheap, ranging from $1-$2. I also recommend that you buy at least 30 sparklers, because the more sparklers you use, the more chance of the bomb being successful.

Step 2 Organizing the equipment

To start, you will need to crush up at least 30 sparklers, but make sure you leave at least one sparkler spare for the fuse. Also, lay out about 50 centimeters (~20 inches) of aluminum foil.

Step 3 Beginning the assembly

Lay out your 50-centimeter piece of foil and find the center of it. Once you have done this, place the aerosol can in the middle and your sparkler dust (which you crushed up earlier) around the aerosol can, making sure that the sparkler dust is spread evenly around the aerosol can. Also, make sure that the sparkler dust is not under the can, otherwise you will have a dud.

Step 4 Preparing the fuse

This is the easiest step. You simply bend the bare wire part of the sparkler upwards.

Step 5 Finishing it off

Place the fuse in the sparkler dust and up against the aerosol can and wrap it all up in the sheet of foil, leaving the end of the fuse clear so that you can light it.

Warning

REMEMBER SAFETY: If you are going to try this, I recommend that you stand a minimum of 100 meters away. From my experience, this bomb will take roughly one minuite to detonate, but this will vary on the length of you fuse and how finely you crushed the sparkler dust. (The finer the sparkler dust is, the faster it will burn. For a bomb like this, you will want the sparkler dust to be in the biggest pieces possible, so that it will burn longer and produce more heat.)

Hi this looks fantastic have you tryed just taping the in crushed sparklers around the outside of the can?

no, because this is a simple method and it works so i havnt felt the need to modify it :)

done similar in my misspent youth.try doing it with a can of aerostart or cheap degreaser.aerostart has high ether content.works a treat but stand back
