Have a cold? Inhale some chloroform and ether. Got dirty pennies? Clean them with a 2000 lethal dozes of cyanide.

social media sillyness:
This book would be called “chemistry life hacks” if it were written today. That being said, the flagrant use of neurotoxins, unstable explosive compounds, and heavy metals means it probably wouldn’t make it on the bookstore shelves.
There are actually a lot of good recipes in here, other than the scary toxins of course. This book would have been extremely useful to someone who knew a little chemistry in the 30s and wanted to save money and make stuff at home. I just picked out some of the more ridiculous formulas and tested them in this video.
