I keep Plain Phillips Milk of Magnesium on my work bench and kitchen
stove for burns. I have burned myself on a soldering iron, torch,
hot grease, hot oven, etc, since 1964 and have used it with success.
Just shake the bottle, pour onto the burn, let it dry, brush it off
with a dry terry cloth washrag.
The pain will stop as the solution starts to dry. IF it still hurts,
pour some more onto the burn and let it dry again.
There usually isn’t a blister and no pain. Unless you get the burn
wet right away or hit the burn area on something.
The first time I used Phillips Milk of Magnesium I had burnt my arm
with hot grease frying shrimp. I was walking around in pain not
knowing what to do other than ice which wasn’t working, when I
remembered reading the instruction of use in the package. I poured
the solution onto my burn and the pain stopped and I didn’t have a
blister. I was really relieved because, the next day I was starting
work at new employment and was really afraid I wouldn’t be able
start work. I started working right on time and with no pain!! If
someone is going to get burned it will be ME!! That is my fate
Thanks to those who responded to my question on how to use orange
shellac for holding a piece to set a stone.
I now have a wooden dowel and also bought a heat gun (someone
suggested using a heat gun instead of using the torch which can make
the shellac too hot and thus too brittle to use which is exactleywhat
happened when I tired a couple weeks ago).
I plan on going to my basement studio and trying it out later today.
