Napalm is a nasty and explosively effective weapon in the world of chemical warfare. It also happens to be surprisingly easy to make at home, with only three ingredients and no specialized equipment. This post will cover how to make napalm, where it comes from, how it’s used as an incendiary device on the battlefield, and more!
Here is how to make napalm: The first step of making homemade napalm requires a container that can hold about one quart. This might seem like an odd thing for readers to have lying around, but the author has been told it’s not uncommon for people who live in colder climates (such as Alaska) to keep jugs with this size and shape on hand in case they end up stranded outside during winter months when roads are snowed over or icy. If you don’t happen to be someone who lives in such extreme conditions, any mason jar will do- you just need something small enough so that the ingredients can heat without getting too spread out or evaporating before they’re supposed to! To prepare your jar, fill it about halfway with water. Add just enough soap to completely cover the bottom of the jar, and then add a few drops of household ammonia or bleach (the author has also heard that some people use Drano). If you’re trying this at home without any previous experience, it’s probably wise not to start out using anything stronger than bleach- it should be easier to dilute in case there are unexpected consequences from excessive exposure!
After preparing your container by adding whatever chemicals you’ve decided on for their combustive properties, put two tablespoons of sugar into either an old pancake syrup bottle or ketchup bottle along with one whole package of unsweetened Kool Aid mix. Any flavor will do as long as it is red; blue or other colors are bad choices because they will stain whatever you’re trying to set on fire.
A small funnel is helpful for getting the Kool Aid mix into your container if it’s too thick or sticky, but this step isn’t required (and a small package of Kool Aid mix can be split in half and used instead).
Once you’ve put both ingredients inside, shake the bottle around vigorously until everything has dissolved as best as possible- do not leave any clumps behind! That way, when all that sugar burns up during combustion, there won’t be anything left over to scorch what was supposed to have been set ablaze. Now wait about five minutes before pouring out the concoction onto some sort of surface; once again with the non-porous, please.
Hint: The more liquid you mix in with the Kool Aid and sugar beforehand, the stronger your napalm will be!
Benefits of Napalm:
Napalm is an incendiary that can be made cheaply and easily. The ingredients are easy to obtain, non-toxic (in the quantities found in household products), and even edible.
The effects of napalming a target include severe burns, less visibility for those on the receiving end, destruction of equipment/materials, immobilization or killing of animals, rendering targets unable to fight from lack of oxygen in lungs due to smoke inhalation or environmental shock caused by extreme heat.
Tips for successful use: make sure your container has no holes so as not allow liquid escape when shaking; avoid pouring out too close because it will splash back up at you with potentially disastrous consequences.”}]

The following are steps required for how to make napalm:
Obtain an open-ended metal container. The best type is a canister with no holes so as not allow liquid from escaping when shaking it. Avoid pouring out too close because it will splash back up at you; while this may seem like a good way to get around making another trip across the room, stay away if possible because it’s going to evaporate more quickly. Keep wet by adding water until contents have melted.
Add a water soluble, thickening agent such as flour. Use enough so it’s not too runny but still liquidly enough to pour out of the container if desired.
Combine a fuel source with an oxidizer and shake the metal canister until contents are well mixed together. This will take anywhere from one second to up to five minutes depending on how long your shaking arm lasts under constant motion before tiring out or how vigorous you want the reaction in order to make more potent napalm for longer burning duration.
