Hi Nelson,

This corn starch you're dumping, is it like flower or is it water with flower or... . Your doors don't seem to close enought to keep in fluids. So what is it like.

Hello,

It's Adriana here. Nelson asked me to explain what corn starch is. Corn starch is a flour made out of corn (sorry for the obvious statement ) which is a very fine white powder. In many countries we know it as Maizena (its brand name) I don't know in Europe.

What we did for the firefighter trick was just to fill the tank with this powder. No water or liquids whatsoever. It's a bit "dusty" and I hope the police never stop us to ask what we are doing with Maizena in the car (they'll never believe it anyways)

I guess we could have used baking soda in the same way.

I hope this clarifies.

Hi Adriana,

Thank you! Now I know what you are using. We have Maizena as well here in Europe. It really looks good in the air.
