Posted:I found the answer to my question through google. But, what do you guys do about getting all the black charcol-like burn stuff all over you? It's really messy and hard to clean. And there was quite a bit on my clothes last night that I hope will come off

Posted:I use dish soap to get it off my skin, or an abrasive soap like Lava. For clothes it depends on the fiber, but i usually wear black or ratty clothing when i spin to avoid the issue.

Posted:all natural fibres, no synthetics(melt)- once your confident the less clothing the better, clothing can catch fire, skin doesn't

even chuck norris can't pin you down if your on fire
