We had HF in our high school lab. Dangerous chemicals from antiquity they disposed of by leaving them out for me to steal. This is the one item I passed on.

Some of the agents they are mentioning aren't that persistent: Ethyl ether? Open the lid, after first extinguishing your cig, should evaporate rather quickly. Acids and bases? Neutralize them under dilution.

Does anybody have a mechanism to explain why these houses are so bad?

Speed was not used to be considered addicting.
Most people don't like it that much.

Mr. Potatoass: "That's when we found the iodine-like staining on the walls and human feces under the floor."

So, these meth heads are taking the time to remove an area of finish, and sub floor, taking a dump, then replacing it?
Brilliant!


It's not normal to remove an area of finish and sub floor, take a dump and then replace it, but when you're on meth it is.

Ciper: Cam to post this quote from the article in case anyone missed it
Prior to the federal Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act of 2006, which regulated the sale of ephedrine and related products used in meth production, the drug was typically manufactured in "superlabs" by organized criminal outfits using industrial space. An unintended consequence of the law was to drive production into residential homes.


Huh?

Google suggests that bill was in 2005, not 2006.....AND......It did NOT pass.

I'm going to assume the rest of your comment is just as wrong.

Er, I assumed that's why he posted that quote from the article - because it was wrong. Whole lot of assumin' goin' on 'round here.

Well, in a labratory environment they aren't that persistent, especially if cleaned up or handled with responsibility (neutralized under dilution). Let then soak into a shag carpet, mix with god knows what other chemicals, or let the vapors get into the ductwork and then dry into a salt and they could stay around for years.

One of the pastimes enlisted guys had at Twentynine Palms in the Mojave desert was to sit out on the barracks balcony's and watch for exploding meth labs. When was the last time you heard of a high school chemistry class going up in flames?

There's nothing so depraved as a man in the depths of an ether binge.

"and human feces under the floor."

How do you even do that? And...and why?

FTFA: Eighteen months after purchasing the three-bedroom home in Suquamish, Wash., the Bates learned in late 2008 that the $235,000 home had been previously used as a meth lab, where the highly addictive and toxic stimulant was manufactured
...
then he spent the next twelve months trying to snort the carpet.

FTFY

Hector Remarkable: "and human feces under the floor."

How do you even do that? And...and why?


Step 1: dump destructive chemicals down any available drain, which connects to the toilet drain. repeat as often as possible

Step 2: take dump in toilet that also empties into line mentioned in step 1

Step 3: soft, spongy floor full of shiat.

Public Savant: FTA: The Bates family was living in a former meth lab, soaked to the studs with dangerous chemicals. After tearing up walls and flooring, the Bates' worst fears were confirmed.
"It came to us when we were tearing up the master bathroom, after the floor starting sinking and got spongy," Jessie Bates told FoxNews.com. "That's when we found the iodine-like staining on the walls and human feces under the floor."


So...are human feces an integral part of producing meth?


Yeah. They mix everything.

ZAZ: Unfortunately there was no cash, but we did find a whole lot of Schlitz cans in the walls.

My father found a draft notice from WW2 in the wall.


That's cooler than Schlitz cans.

April 26.

Okay, fine. It was a middle school.
