Sometimes I swallow them as a testament to my manliness. Other times I throw them at old people. Depends on my mood.

This works with exotica naturals also.

That's the exact same thing I wanted to ask yesterday xD
What I do, when I smoke inside, is wait for the coals (I use quicklites) to completely go out, then I just throw the ash in the trash.
If they're still hot though and I don't wanna wait for them to go out, I usually flush them down the toilet :X

I usually just rinse them under running water .. or just let them burn out in my tray out of the way for my cats to knock it over!

NEVER put them in a glass ash tray, it will crack or shatter the ashtray! (trust me, a friend tried this once)

Cheers!

It is the longest ten seconds of your life. Everything moves in slow motion as Fluffy dodges the coals and avoids you having to do to her what you now have to do to the carpet.

just poor a bit of water on them, they cool down pretty fast. I've once neglected a coal on the carpet not knowing it was there until later. Not saying it's the wisest thing to do with fire, but all the harm it did was smolder a hole into the carpet until it finally just snuffed out. The best approach would be water, and a proper tin / metal container until you can properly dispose of it.

I put them in front of my neighbors door and then ring his doorbell and run and watch him step on the hot coals.

We have a *** that we leave on the stove top and just let them burn out then we throw the ashes outside or in the trash if we know they are completely cold.

i'll just put them in a solo cup that's about halfway full of water. the coals absorb the water so i can just toss it in the trash w/ no problems.

This, minus the pringles can. I can't believe it wasn't until the 15th post someone said it, lol.

I just have a pie tin I use for carrying my coals, so when I'm done I just transfer everything to the pie tin, then the trash can.
