    I'm making a homemade vaporizer out of a lightbulb. I cut the bottom part off and took out the glass and metal pieces inside, but I noticed there is this green clay-like stuff inside the metal part, I managed to chip most of it out, but there's still some inside. So my question is what is this, and is it safe to use a bulb with this stuff in it. And if not, how do I get it out of the bulb?

    Use salt to rinse out the inside of the lightbulb before use.

    I don't worry about it when he makes his. The heat usually doesn't travel far enough up the bulb to give off any toxic fumes.
    Just don't light the metal part.. haha (Not even sure what this material is, but I'm sure it isn't good to smoke)

    Sorry to bring up such an old thread but I was also wondering if this green like plaster substance is toxic. I believe that it probably is toxic, but like someone said the heat will not melt it or cause it to make any fumes.

    PS

    Don't even worry about the green crap, just make sure to get all the white powder out of the bulb with salt and water.

    When SWIM made his, SWIM just ignored it and it worked fine. SWIM just doesn't like lightbulb vapes because I feel like I am smoking meth, and clear glasswear gives SWIM the willies.
