The cost of living is on the rise and it can be difficult to cut corners in this day and age where people’s perception of you can be paramount. There are some items that you can get away with by paying for less in Lidl or Aldi. However, some items are more difficult to do on the cheap. Clothes, fizzy drinks and sanitary pads all fall into this category.

Another item that falls into this category is Napalm. The much sought after incendiary device has seen its prices shoot through the roof during the recent recession. A barrel of the gelling agent used to cost an arm and a leg but now has seen prices drop due to some home enthusiasts brewing it in their bathtubs to circumvent the high market prices.

To be the envy of all your mercantile inclined peers, you will need to jump on this new trend as soon as possible. There are obvious safety issues that need to be addressed when mixing your Napalm but these will be obstacles you will learn by doing.

The main issue you will address is whether or not to make the classic Napalm or the newer ‘Napalm B’. “Napalm” is a combination of the names of two of the constituents of the gelling agent: naphthenic acid and palmitic acid. “Napalm B” is the more modern version of napalm and, although distinctly different in its chemical composition, it is often referred to simply as “Napalm”.

Do not be afraid to experiment with the mixtures, having a unique style is what will make you stand out from the crowd.
