Insert the longer tube right into the whoopee cushion and also seal the rim through your fingers while you punch (or pump air) right into the shorter tube. This will blow up the whoopee cushion v "fragrant" air, and also you have the right to now continue to strategically location the cushion for maximum awkward effect.DISCLAIMER: the enhance heads and ammonia are an alleged to sit because that a week... To make the challenge deadline i only had actually time come to let the macerate for a pair days. At this allude the resulting odor is still closer come ammonia than rotten egg so the experiment is not fully successful -- yet. I"ll report earlier with complete results in a few days. If the doesn"t work-related other concoctions deserve to be provided with the same basic set-up.CAUTION: don"t blow this waiting in any type of person or pets direction. It stings. Just thinking around what would occur if you suck the wait in rather than blow it out renders me unconvinced to write-up this instructable.
