    do any fellow swimmers out here have any tricks to get all the residue off of the bag? SWIM usually just rub it with itself, but was wondering if there were any other more effective ways out there.

    It's just so hard throwing away that little corner!!:crazy

    turn the bag inside out, that makes it easier to scrape the dope out. also swiy could cut the bag in half, that may make it easier to scrape excess powder out. is swiy talking about the bags that have extra plastic in the corner, making a little pocket for dope to hide in?

    SWIM did this with coke once...Just take the bag by the top where it seperates and splt the bag so the inside is exposed then get a straw and snort the powder off the bag str8 up & SWIY will get it all.

    If he wants to IV it go with what the Osnappo's advice.

    SWIM used to know how to be able to get meth out of the corners of a baggie.. if she thinks hard enough she may remember how. Is heroin in powder form sticky like meth crystals are? Or is it more like coke?

    Someone I know used to get a pretty decent hit off all the powder that was stuck to the bag she used to get her gear in. Unsure how well this method would work for very small amounts (still worth doing though), but if you've got a bit of plastic that once held a gram or more it's rather effective; Get a filter (like a hand rolling cigarette filter, or whatever your preferred filter is, e.g. cotton), put it in a spoon with a little water, and heat it up. Then, using some tweezers (or very clean fingers), hold onto the filter and wipe it all over the plastic. All the powder will stick to the wet filter. Then add the filter to some fresh water in the spoon, add a few grains of citric/ vit c if necessary, and cook up.

    Obviously this method is only of use to injectors, but I'm sure others will have some advice for smokers/ insufflaters...

    God SWIM can't count how many times he sat there dope sick with dozens of empty bags, trying to get something out of them.

    First he'd take them all and rub them super hard in all different directions with his thumb and forefinger over a surface, to get all the last dust out. This he'd put in a separate pile.

    Then he'd take some hot water, and suck it up in a 1 cc syringe. He'd spray it out into the first bag, swish it around, and then pour it into the next bag. Over and over, occasionally readding hot water since you can't get it all out of each bag. If he felt the water was getting at least mildly potent, he'd pour it in the cooker and start fresh again with the remaining bags. Usually he'd have more water left over than 1CC, so he'd lightly heat it to steam some of the water off. Then add the powder he was able to scrape, and bang it.

    The alternative he'd sometimes use was to do step one (rub the bags out as much as possible), and then rip them open down the seams, and take a special toothbrush he kept to brush the rest of the dust out onto the collection surface. Best to do in a completely windless environment of course.

    Swim rips the bag down on side the bags swim gets are the blue wax paper like stamp bags. Then rubs the paper together and usually some is trapped within the corner which has been a life saver for swim if he wasn't fiending to hard when he got his bags in the first place cause usually there is actually useful amount to add up with the rest of the bags. Then swims favorite scraping tool is a paper clip with one end pulled out to make it straight it works well.

    Swim is a smoker, and usually rips their bags instead of untying the knot so that in times of need they can untie them and get some goodness. Swim only really caught on to this idea about two months ago, and found about 20 knots in his bin...my god that was a good night for swim. They'll typically get a line out of a knot, rarely more - though one hit is enough to ease the sickness if swim has been foolish enough to use for a few days in a row.

    dying_tomorrow I assume that you are talking about bags that are, for the purposes of discussion, "completely gone." In other words, there ain't much to scrape. How many bags would SWIY water down before banging up? Just wondering. SWIM has about 100 empty bags that are "completely gone." Possible dust.

    Thanks,

    For the wax paper stamp bags-prevalent in east coast u.s. SWIM will undo the tape, flick the bag then rip off the top. Empty bag into cooker, usually there is always residue left in the bag. Once all dope is gone, and SWIM only has "scrapes" left, she carefully will undo the bottom flap of the stamp bag, then open along seams. Scrape bags using a razor blade into cooker, spoon, (mirror if your snorting) whatever. Works well for SWIM esp. when you have multiple bags left over for "scrapes"!

    As many as he had. If he had 30 bags he would sit there and do them all. Normally he only had like 10 or so bags. It was always depressing sitting there sick, doing all this work and knowing he was going to get a bullshit, non-working hit.

    100 bags would probably get you a decent hit, but it's gonna take a lot of work. SWIM would almost recommend ripping all the bags open down the seam, and washing them out in a little bowl with a small amount of water. Then evaporating it with a hair dryer or something and see what you get.

    When SWIM first started he had a ton of money, and had a huge garbage bag filled with many thousands of bags with decent residue that he was saving. But he threw them out for some unknown reason, and always kicked himself over it when he became poor and perpetually dope sick.

    Swim usually just let's it be, she doesn't like damaging the bags. (swim collected stamps as a child, and now has a different type of stamp collection haha) But if swim already has that type of stamp the usual rips the bag open, scrapes with a razor, and then wipes it down with a wet filter. Not sure if the filter helps, but it makes swim feel like she really is getting every last speck.

    Swim never gets gear in the form of zip-lock bags he assumes some of you swiys are talking about.. heroin here is always sold in little bundles of plastic with three layers and a knot around them so they can be stored in someones mouth safe from saliva or policemen
    They look exactly like this: http://api.ning.com/files/hR84-4yov...eiu*yv4G22cxCIGjVj5NfMIC5FhzhL1JJC/before.jpg

    If swim figures there might be any residue left he just lay the inside that has been in contact with the heroin on a book with a glossy cover and simply rub against it and then scrape it together with a credit card.

    swim also gets the balloons with the waxpaper, swim just scrapes it with a card, or other scraping device.
