    Swim has heard of washing powder with acetone to purify it but will the same work if swim powdered crack and did the wash? If so will it still be in its smokeable form? Or will it be the snortable kind?

    first of all, just cause someone says an acetone wash works for yayo, doesnt mean it does, did u also read the 50million other reports saying that there's no way in hell that it works? If you want to guinea pig it, try it. Water might work also since cocaine in freebase form (crack) is almost completely insoluble in water if i remember correctly.

    If you make ur own crack, do the freebase method (ether and ammonia). It give pure cocaine base and smokes like a dream!

    how to clean up nasty crack

    This is kinda a theory but:
    1)first powder the crack
    2)place in spoon with some water and heat. Heat evenly till almost simmering. This is to disolve any water soluble cut and any extra bakeing powder. Coke is water soluble but its base is not. Allow to cool and pour off the water.
    3). Dry whats left
    4) powder and place in a new spoon with white vinager and heat till almost simmering. The bakeing soda will react with the vinager and turn the base into coke again.
    5). Once cooled run the liquid through a fine filter and discard any solids.
    6) evaporate the vinager.
    7) scrape up the residue and place in a new spoon and freebase as you would if it was coke. This process should allow you to use the minimum of baking soda and help remove some of the cut.

    Any thoughts?

    firstly there are many posts and threds on hear about freebaseing stuff utfse we dont realy need any more also you say it's water soluble so coke will disolve but then sugest poring away the water? the water would have the coke in it. but coke atualy collects as an oil on serface of water so its the base and cut that disolve in the water. you dont need vinager eather or to pour it threw filters simply collecting the cleaned oil would be enough. so this is not a very efficiant way of doing it (how many spoons do you need)lol plus it has many wrong facts in it. swim can understand geting it and rewashing it especialy if it has been washed with amonia first time round, but simply like you would coke to crack just making a cleaner stone but all you need is one spoon water and baking soda. nothing more or less.

    I understood the post well enough despite the error in regard to solubility.

    No sense cutting into the guy.

    I would assume that vinigar would not be potent enough to cause freebase cocaine to react sufficiently where it surrenders ALL of it's base-like properties, so I suspect that there may be risk of having some residual freebase material left over after the initial conversion.

    bigelf,

    Do you know anyone who has actually TRIED this process?

    swim did not meen to cut into anyone and if thats how it came across swim apologises. just seamed abit to much for something that is relativly simple. aswell as the fact there is many posts on good freebasing tec's.

    you got it, i'd use ice water, baking powder is soluable enough to dissolve in cold, and the warmer it is the more chance you have of dissolving some coke which you really dont want

    A co-incidence that Bigelf mentioned this because Swim told me that someone mentioned acetone to him last week. Maybe it's relevant to the discussion here.

    Basically Swim scrapes his crack pipe out every now and then and gets a few strong hits from the scrapings. But he was told to clean his pipe out with acetone - this would clean everything out - and then let the residue dry completely. The result, he was assured, would be Very Good.

    Has anyone here tried that? If so, what was the result?

    personally, i wouldnt, rez will def be left from the acetone (other than crack rez) unless u use lab grade stuff (and even then some could be left), which i believe is flammable. So if rez is left all over your pipe it could catch flame while sparking it up, just a thought. I'd stick to scraping

    No, if it's crack, ethanol is the solvent. Wash, collect, filter and leave to evaporate/dry.

    Crack = soluble in ethanol. Wash with ethanol, collect and filter, leave to dry/evaporate.

    Purifying Crack Cocaine

    SWIM is curious about the best method for him to purify crack cocaine. He’s read the FAQ, but mostly found information relating to purifying cocaine hydrochloride rather than crack cocaine. SWIM’s knowledge of chemistry is pathetic, so perhaps he’s missing something. Could somebody direct him to some useful (and hopefully not too complicated) information on the subject of purifying crack cocaine?

    Wash pipe out with tone...pour onto mirror or glass from picture frame and light with lighter..stand back and after the flames go out scrape up the gunk and smoke

    I know this sounds like i am trying to burn your house down but if you use only a little bit at a time the flame are not big

    I knew someone who used alcohol(rubbing?) that you buy in the pharmacy. It comes in the same type of bottle as peroxide except its usually white.. Apparently it works quite well as long as it is 100% (or close to) and is unscented... !!!Don't use 50%!!! All you need to do is put a little ( 10 drops or so? ) into your 'pipe' , plug each end with your fingers and shake it around a little bit (try not to spill), pour out the fluid onto some glass or a mirror and then light the fluid on fire, after the alcohol burns off you are left with an oily (brown\black) substance you can scrape off with a razor blade - usually the stuff on the glass is still wet but as you scrape it off it dries up pretty quick. This method doesn't take very long and yeilds some good tokes. Although, before you reuse the pipe, make sure you burn off any fluid that may be left in it or it will taste kinda nasty! You can also reclean your pipe several times using this method since it doesn't always get everything out the first time. Works very well with brass type fittings! My friend says that before you use this method it is best if you scrape out any chunks of resine first and use this method for your last cleanings.
