… for common people like us …
The following information is true to the best of our knowledge and belief.
We believe that the power/property of an RP will never go away even without packing.
A Rice Puller is ‘anti-electricity.’ Rice Pullers interfere with electronic & electrical items. It is very important to protect electronic & electrical items from Rice Pullers. Rice Pullers have a radiation which ‘may’ harm a person (not confirmed).
You may follow these simple steps to safely pack to store or carry your RP:
The following packing procedure is merely our suggestion. We do not guarantee safety of your Item/RP by following our guidelines.
If your RP is small, it is relatively safer to pack and carry it. If it is a large item, you have to be very careful in handling it. The best thing to do is to let the RP remain where it is and we will take care of it when we come to check and buy it.
|#||Wrap the RP in cotton|
|#||If your RP is small (coin, etc.), take a big soap (optional) used in washing clothes, and cut the soap in half.
* make a hole so that the RP can fit inside easily
* then put the RP inside and bring the 2 soap pieces together
|#||wrap it in carbon paper with the carbon side facing down (inside)|
|#||wrap it in another carbon paper facing up (outside)|
|#||wrap it in another carbon paper facing down (inside)|
|#||repeat the above a few times|
|#||if your RP is small (coin, etc..), put the above in a condom (a condom is a very good quality rubber) and then in a polythene bag and start testing the packing by putting untested rice as explained 3 steps below|
|#||wrap a soft & thick plastic sheet (polythene) around the above|
|#||wrap it with white sticking tape used by doctors|
|#||now wrap it several times in rubber tyre tube used in cycle/cars/truck (depending on size)|
|#||place this packed piece on a plain wooden surface and sprinkle lots of untested basmati rice on and around it|
|#||wait for half an hour and see if any rice sticks to the packing AND pick a grain of rice and rub it between your fingers and see if it breaks into pieces|
|#||even if one rice grain sticks OR if it breaks into pieces after rubbing between your fingers, add more packing material + carbon papers + plastic sheet + white tape + tyre tube|
|#||again test the packing with untested rice for about half an hour|
|#||if rice does not stick BUT still changes color OR becomes powder (or even in larger pieces) when rubbed between your fingers, then add more packing|
|#||test the packing again|
|#||if rice does not stick, does not change color and also does not become powder, add one more final layer of packing material + carbon papers + plastic sheet + white tape + tyre tube|
|#||finally put it in a wooden box (optional)|
|#||We also recommend doing the Torch Test on your packing.|
Now it is ready to store / carry.
Despite the above, we advise you,
Never carry the packed RP in an airplane / aeroplane / train.
