    Last night, I was checking to see if my pepper spray was working, or if it was clogged or anything. I sprayed a little, just to see if the nozzel was working properly. It was, so I cleaned up the floor where a little had gotten, washed my hands thoroughly, and that was that. Then when I was in bed reading, I kind of put my finger in my mouth. Not fully, just the edge of my knuckle. Its kind of an involuntary thing, however when I did, I got an unpleasant surprise. Pepper spray is oil based, not water based, so no amount of water will get it off. My mouth and lips were burning, it felt like someone was taking a cigarette lighter to them. It just kept getting worse. I ran into the bathroom and tried washing my mouth out with water to no avail. I tried tons of soap, but my mouth still hurt badly. Luckily, I found an antidote on a website: a mixture of water and dishwashing detergent.

    Lesson to be learned: DON'T mess around with pepper spray unless you're getting mugged. It really sucks :x.

    Oh dear. Some people have to learn about things the hard way! ;)
    I once did, too, with something else but Pepper Spray, and in a different manner, which I am not going to explain, but ... you had me jump up and down in agony then, too.

    Were you using a chemical pepper spray or a natural pepper spray?

    Probably natural. It said "made from the hottest peppers in the world" or something like that.

    Reminds me of a funny story.

    It was a nice balmy 100 degree Kansas afternoon. I was driving down the road and came to a stop light. There was a single car in front of me, and old Toyota Supra with two guys in it.

    We had only been stopped at the light a few moments when all of a sudden both men leaped from the car and ran in two different directions. They appeared to be in very bad pain, one dropped to the ground. The other looked as though he was crying. I got out of my car and before I got a chance to ask what happened and see if they needed assistance, I smelled the pepper spray in the air.

    The driver had a canister of the spray in his center console and it had been in there quite some time. Apparently the temperature reached the point where the canister ruptured and doused the entire car with a fine mist of gas.

    One of the men was 350+ lbs and he sprinted from the car as if he were a 150lbs track star. :)

    Bhut Jolokia chili rated at 1,001,304 Scoville heat units?


    Been there. If applying IcyHot to the thighs, wear tighty whiteys, not boxers.

    [edit]
    To be honest though, it wasn't as bad as you'd think. Either that or I my pain tolerance is above normal.

    Yea, it really sucks. I only got a trace amount in my mouth (less than a drop). I can imagine what a whole canister in your eye would feel like.

    When I was 15, I pulled my groin diving for a ball in center field. Two days later and it was still aching, so I applied some icy hot to my inner thigh before going to sleep. I have a fairly high pain tolerance, and 20min later I was puking in the bathroom then passed out.

    You can build up a tolerance for it over time and a few exposures. If put in your eyes, though, it would still be painful.
