problems with axe body spray

Unread postAuthor: mrmoose » Thu May 29, 2008 11:35 am

I find when using axe that the screws inside constantly get gummed up and it wont ignite after 1 shot, anyone else have this problem?? Is it beacuse Im using body spray not deodorant, or are they the same thing?

Use Static Guard. No sticky.

My biggest problem w/ Axe is that it never works like the commercials and I don't even like how it smells (PEW! my BO smells better) :P 8)

Oh yes, I also have to add that I despise the smell of Axe. Even the smallest amount is overpowering.

I have yet to try Tag, though if it works like their commercials say it does, I might just buy a case or two.

Carb cleaner is pretty harsh stuff. I wouldn't want to use that.

I have had the exact same problem with it not igniting after your first shot and no matter how much you air it out it just wont work a second time.
And do not use carb cleaner if your gun is pvc, it will slowly dissolve the pvc.

I use Isopropanol 99% (rubbing alcohol) in my mini cannon. It works really well, and very powerful if you atomized it.

The yellow container of HEET gas line anti freeze is pure methanol, works very well atomized with a small shot of Static Guard to ignite it. Make sure to drain the chamber after firing. Isopropanol (red HEET) fumes nearly knock me over, don't get near them when venting the chamber.

Buy the HEET when it goes on sale.

One dufus in school sprayed it all over a classroom and 3 people (Myself included) came down with allergic reactions. THe retard in question then preceded to spray a locker room, with similar results. First offense was suspension, second offense SHOULD have been expulsion, but my principle acts tough until some one REALLY does something bad then she shits her pants

Ive tried before, but I cant find that HEET stuff anywhere! All the gas line anti-freeze products are "methanol free" But the stores around here have methylated spirits (Its in the paint section, so I guess its used to strip paint or thin it..maybe?). Would that be he same stuff as the yellow HEET?
This might be a stupid question, but would methanol be more powerful the Isopropanol?

more likely than not, yes. I mean, who wants extremely flammable liquid all over your skin?
