I have exactly the same concerns. I've narrowed it down to hydrogen sulfide, inert gas, or jumping.
I’ve read a lot about jumping and it can be a pretty brutal way to go. I wish there was a better way to know about gas. I worry about possible burns in the throat or lungs etc. From what I’ve read it seems like if the concentrations are high enough you go in a few breaths but I haven’t found anything that confirms. It says death in 4-5 minutes but if you were being burned in your nose lungs eyes etc for 5 minutes that would be eternity.

I used to frequent suicide Usenet groups back in 2010 & 2011, and back then this was easily the most popular and talked about method. I personally know of one person who successfully went with this method. At that time this was also my chosen method..

Fast forward about 9 years (time goes fast!) and I joined this forum and was surprised to see no mention of it at all anymore.
I think I still have a bunch of info & files about H2S on a external hard drive that I saved from back then.

I was wondering if anyone had info if Sulfur dust mixed with the Works toilet bowel cleaner to create the deadly gas. If so what amount. Any other info how to create hydrogen sulfide would be great

If you're going to use this method, at least in my view, you have to make damn sure you're not harming other people.

Ideally you would do it in an open and remote space far away from people.

You should also post warning signs to alert people of the danger.

I may be suicidal, but I'm not going to take innocent people with me like some other scummy people have done.

So mixing liquid lime sulfur from bonsai tree supplies and toilet bowl cleaner (HCl) should do the job right?

I see a lot of people asking for instruction. If you’re serious about the method at least have the respect and responsibility to do the research yourself. It’s very easy to find. You shouldn’t be on an Internet forum asking random people and simply basing it on that. Do the research yourself and be damn well sure you follow the proper method and protocol as to not hurt others and make sure it’s done correctly.

Depending on where you live, getting your sulfur source from bonsai tree supplies may be difficult (for the US at least). I've gotten the supplies for this, and have found that purchasing lime sulfur (used for treating mange) off of amazon to be the easiest. I've also tested it to make sure it reacts with muriatic acid, and it seems to work very well.

This seems to be a good and solid method. Anyone have more links to instructions/guides?

I’ve considered this seriously. The main consideration is ethical, protecting other people. When I was working out a plan for it, it was to put my car in an empty field or lot on a quiet day or night, in a spot far from any EMS station to buy time. I’d want to generate a real excess of the gas, but then what about the people who have to deal with the site later? More is not safe for others even if it means certain death for me. I also considered tying a rope tight between the handles of the passenger and driver doors, to eliminate any self-rescue options and also prevent a casual person from opening the doors. In the end short drop hanging may be better. A method that is actually deadlier than a gun has obvious appeal, but guns don’t have secondary danger for others.

I simply googled "Lime sulfur + hcl" and according to the results, that's a yes. But I find it difficult to estimate how much H2S you would get.

I thought HS was painful.
According to what I've researched so far, high concentrations of H2S knock you out almost instantly. So it doesn't seem to me that there would be pain.

It's important to remember that the lethal concentration of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) in the air is 1000ppm (0.1%). So, some calculations need to be made. Mixing too little of the two ingredients will likely lead to failure.

My currently chosen method is carbon monoxide (CO). But I'm studying the H2S method, and might switch to it. The main reason is that I need ten times the concentration of CO when compared to H2S to reach trusty lethal levels. And I already have half the stuff needed for the reaction. But I won't mix household products, I find that unreliable. I prefer to use the pure chemicals.

How do you get them?

The chemicals? I buy them from chemical suppliers. No questions asked. I found in my region suppliers that sell to individuals, though there are those that only sell to companies (specially in the case of acids).

I don’t have enough knowledge to obtain those. Would a household cleaner with HCl suffice?

I’m looking at a product that contains 97.8% sulfurated lime. Would that work in combination with a household cleaner with HCl?

Yes, a house cleaner with HCL (also known as 'muriatic acid) will suffice. But you'll have to check the percentage of HCL and based on that (and on the percentage of the other product needed for the reaction, the sulfur source) calculate the expected quantity of hydrogen sulfide (h2s). In my opinion, it's risky to simply mix a whole lot of the products and just hope that the quantity of h2s produced is right.

As for the "sulfurated lime" , yes I think it'll do, it seems to be the same as "lime sulfur". However simply saying it contains 'sufurated lime' is kinda vague regarding quantity of the reagent. Lime sulfur is usually said to contain 'calcium polysulfides', which is what you need to for the reaction.

I've attached a file to this answer, which contains, on page 7, two columns, one being a list of 'acid sources' and the other a list of 'sulfur sources'

Very helpful PDF, amazing that it only requires two household ingredients and works so quickly. Might be a good option to consider. There is an increased risk to others, but if you do it in a car with proper signage that can be minimized.

It looks complicated and risky. Isn't SN reliable enough? Much easier to obtain and risk-free?

SN is far more difficult to obtain unless you're in the US and can order death online through Scamazon. And the highly suggested anti emetics can be extremely difficult to obtain as well.

The components for HS can be bought in a local hardware or superstore for a price probably equivalent to SN, also HS is a lot faster and probably harder to mess up. HS also has a huge risk to others, so that is a big downside if you can't do it in a car or isolated building in the middle of nowhere.

Bottom line I think either one done properly with enough time will work. Weigh the pros and cons of your particular situation and use the best for you.

Hi DreamCatcher. Im living in Turkey. I think im really lucky so because i can buy SN online and really cheap. Antiemetics are easy to find too. Thats why i compared with HS. So I don't know now which is better at this point.

If you can do either safely I'd probably go with SN. There is less risk to others and it's fairly quick and relatively painless.

Since you can acquire the medicines you need to make it work properly, just plan it out and make sure you do it right the first time and are somewhere you won't be found for a while.

I hope you find peace.

I was watching ABC News earlier and they mentioned a “hotel poison scare”. I got online and found a news report to get more information.

In the report they mention a rotten egg smell so it was likely H2S. Thankfully whoever did this didn’t kill anyone, but did sicken some.

So I have tried detergent suicide three times and it hasn’t worked for me.

1. Dandruff shampoo (1%) + toilet cleaner (9.5%)

I used 2 bottles of shampoo and the drain cleaner in a bucket inside my car. Zero or very slow reaction.

2. Dandruff shampoo (1%) + toilet cleaner (9.5%)

I used 6 bottles of shampoo and 2 bottles of drain cleaner, left in a closet for about 3 hours and still nothing.

3. Made my own lime sulfur (?%) and mixed with Muriatic (32%)

Couldn’t find Lime Sulfur anywhere, so i went on youtube to figure out how to make my own: Ingredients were easy to obtain - sulfur (90%) and hydrated lime from a store selling stuff for plants etc. muriatic acid from a hardware store - they sold it to balance swimming pool ph.

Spent 2 hours cooking it, smell wasn't the best. Took whatever i made, wrote my notes down, went to my bathroom and mixed the acid in. Crazy reaction, but i didn’t get knocked out. It was hard to breathe in. I stayed in for about 10 mins, (ex) girlfriend came in early and for some reason decided to look into my bathroom window (instinct?).

I walked out and she said it was smelling like rotten eggs. Told her to get tf out of the house. She quickly figured out what was going on and made me get rid of everything.

I wanna try again, coz i’m pretty sure i f’ed up during the cooking. But i don’t have the chemistry knowledge to understand what went wrong.

H2S is still on my shortlist of methods, and the PDF posted earlier in this thread was one of my research sources.

I've had my H2S supplies on hand (unopened) since 2012. I'm not sure if they'd still be OK and tbh I don't even remember which two substances I bought with which to make it. I'll have to look in the garage tomorrow.

As for H2S method etiquette, it would be a very good idea to place clear warnings on your car's windows or on the dashboard of your car, making it very clear to first responders that they must call a Hazmat team to clean up the scene because there's no point in the first responder risking their lives just to retrieve a corpse. There's no way in heck I'd use the H2S method in a house, hotel room or any building where other people may be present. If you don't currently have a car, buy a beater that's just good enough to drive yourself to a relatively isolated location to do the deed.

i dont know the proportions either (how much muriatic to how much sulfur) i guess it depends on which products your using and how much active ingredient in each - fyi on Amazon there is pet sulfur shampoo that has 97% sulfur for around $20 for 16 oz.. There was a detergent suicide at Fairmont Hotel in California in last couple of days. Yes of course @SelfHatingAspie is right this has to be done so no one else is hurt, etc.

Correct, it’s not a method where you wanna go and not gaf. I had to cut mine short because the gf came to check the bathroom from the back and i had the whole place locked down with notes to say “call 911, toxic fumes inside (h2s)”. Vents were taped shut and airways blocked.
If i didn’t cut it, she would’ve prolly called 911 and made it worse for me.

Next time, i will drive out somewhere and do it, and it seems easier to make iron sulfide - i’ll try that.
