Philippines-based Marry Ferjel Babasa’s post, has as of now garnered more than 98,000 shares and 12,000 comments, since it was published on 2 April.
“Girls!!! Since there are many bad guys out there now, I’ll share my lifesaver hack,” Marry’s captioned her post.
Marry then described her DIY pepper spray as “easy, affordable, and hassle free,” and explained there were only three ingredients required in making the pepper spray-
- A spray bottle
- Several chilli api
- And water
With the chili Marry asked to chop the chilies into small pieces, and mixed them with water in the spray bottle.
“Shake, shake shake, then you’re done!” Marry wrote. “Get a plastic or piece of paper, spray it on there, then sniff it. You can smell how strong the aroma is,” she added
This is sure to sting those offenders away!
