Hello.

Can we make a list of typical household and over-the-counter chemicals that are obtainable without "prescription' in supermarkets, hardware stores, but not from chemical specialty suppliers ?

Like:

 

Sodium bicarbonate

Rubbing alcohol

Acetic acid (vinegar)

Turpentine

Acetone

Gasoline

Kerosene

Diesel

Naphta

Butane

Sodium chloride (salt)

Paint thinner (whatever it is)

Sodium hipochlorite? (the water softener stuff)

Epsom salt

Borax

Graphite (pencil leads)

Oils

Methylethilketone

Cyanoacrylate

 

 

 

Please add, rename properly and do corrections...

Miguel :)

I've forgot some, CO2 :eek:, propane gas, MnO2 ...

 

calcium carbide

sodium/potassium iodide

Ca(NO3)2

NaHSO4

 

NaHSO4, that's used for pools

Ca(NO3)2, in garden stores, mixed with paraffin, as a fertilizer

for CaC2 and NaI/KI, I'm not sure where I can get them...

 

I've found hexamine and magnesium metal at the canadian tire

Ya, i hate buying things like that in public because people are stupid and think your gonna tried to do something dangerous with it. They think of "battery acid" as something that on contact with your skin will burn a hole in your hand in like 5 seconds.

 

This is why my dad bought the H2SO4

and just become Am?

Am-241 has a half-life of about 432 years. So if one microgram of it was in a smoke detector made in 1573, we'd have half a microgram of it. :D (And Am wasn't discovered until 1944, so if one gram of it was made way back then, I believe it would have decayed into about 0.93 grams of it today).

I am new and from Kitchener Waterloo ,Ontario Canada (Home of the Blackberry) and changing jobs from a major Building Centre Retailer that sells all the products that regularly come in a Wallmart. My focus is to develop a Melaleuca business . I am looking for third party varification that the off gasing in these Wallmart distrubuted products ( such as Tide and Febreeze)is worse than Melaleucas.(Particularly in the home), I can cetainly tell by breathing but need the science. Trade Secrets and lack of Work Hazardous Material Sheets tells me to dig deeper. Our family feels great using these products. I need some scientific proof to do some demonstrations and referrals for self confidence. I not trying to sell anybody anything in this paragraph just want to develop a better scientic story.
