Right gaurd no longer works:

Post questions and info about combustion (flammable vapor) powered launchers here. This includes discussion about fuels, ratios, ignition systems and anything else relevant to launchers powered by igniting things like hairspray or propane.

Alot of new members have been confused because we had previously said that right gaurd was the best aerosol fuel, yet it doesn't work. this is because Right Gaurd Brand has changed to a non-flamable formula.

To get an aerosol that will work look at the ingredients list, it's not enough for it to have a flamable warning on the side!

look for these 3 ingredients: Butane, Isobutane, and Propane.

Some other deoterant sprays which will still work include "brute" "axe" and several others. If any other members have a good alternative also add to this list.

Tag and Old spice bodysprays work.

Also, USE STARTING FLUID IF AT ALL POSSIBLE!

Yeah, like SpudMonster said Old Spice will work. If I remember it has almost the same ingriedients(the ones we look for anyway) as Right Guard. Its just scented. Ill probably be using that unless I come across a cheap generic brand.

I know it was talked about "twice before" but no one thought about putting up a sticky about it... This was placed up here so that people could hopefully see it before they go asking why it doesn't work....

the knock-off stuff doesnt work, it's SD Alcohol too now. But what does work if you can get your hands on it, is the Nail Enamel Dryer you can find it in beauty salon shops. Ya, you'll look like a homo but look at these ingredients
ngredients: Butane, Propane, SD Alcohol 40-B,Cydomethicone, Panthenol, Mink Oil, AMP-Isostearoyl Hidrolized, Wheat Protein,Tocopherol, Retinyl Palmitate, Cholecalciferol, (may also contain Isobutane).
