...So, my 18th birthday was on Friday, and I went out with some friends yesterday. We went to the mall, and, as a late birthday present, one of my friends stole me at least $40 worth of stuff. First, he got me a cigarette case. Then, "Ride The Lightning" on vinyl. Lastly, he stole me a pink Zippo with the words "The Bitch's Lighter" on it. He did it as a joke, and I laughed. Now, problem is, the Zippo was empty. I went to Stop & Shop to buy some fluid, but, stupid me, I bought butane instead. Gas =/= fluid. But, now, I'm out of money, and I have no lighter fluid around the house.

So, question is, can I fill the cotton in the bottom of the Zippo with any kind of combustible liquid, as long as it's not super explosive? How about Axe body spray? Furniture polish?

Oh, and, this is a serious question.

yes, use white spirit.
Don't use any household **** like polish, too risky.

My uncle used to fill his zippo with just about any liquid fuel, i remember him using kerosene, rubbing alcohol even regular gasoline..although i dont recommend any of them, make my smoke taste a little funny.

Stole you stuff? How badass!
mmmk.

Use something like white spirit, I'd definately avoid body spray and furnature polish. Body spray will make things taste like ****+polish will probably **** the lighter up by clogging up the cotton bit

If it's actually a zippo, it's worth $40 by itself. I've never seen a store where one could simply grab a zippo and leave, they are always in locked cases. I doubt you have a real zippo.

If you can't afford to buy zippo fluid, which is cheap, I can't imagine how you can afford to burn anything.

Where can I get this White Spirit stuff, and what is it?

He was going to, but once he realized I got gas instead of fluid, we were already quite far from Stop & Shop, and, at the Wal*Mart we were at, all the lighter fluid is kept behind the counter, with the cigarettes.

This. It isn't a "real" Zippo. It's one of those novelty wind-proof lighters that you can get in Spencer's Gifts. I just say Zippo because, well, it's shorter than wind-proof lighter. The only reason I can't afford the Zippo fluid is because I spent all my money on Friday and Yesterday. Apparently, cigarette prices in Massachusetts are completely ridiculous. I mean, $7.30 for a pack of Marlboro Smooth 100s? $6.43 for my pack of Reds? It's retarded. I love living in New Hampshire for the fact that, well, no sales tax.

Don't you dare complain about cigarette prices in the States.

Does White Spirit definitely work in zippos? Has someone tried it before? I have loads of that stuff in my house, and no lighter fluid. It would be very useful if it does work

depends on which type you use, but some of it is highly volatile and would be dangerous.
