In case you dont know what LAW is, its a liquid solution (Liquid Antacid and Water) that you can make at home to help treat pain and physical damage from tear gas chemicals in your eyes and mouth. It’s a simple solution every protester should have handy!

Step one: Go out and steal yourself a bottle of Maalox anti-acid/anti-gas stomach relief liquid (or anything equivalent).  

Step two: Get yourself a water bottle and fill it halfway with the anti-acid liquid. 

Step three: Fill the other half with water.

A little work will go a long way. Now you got yourself some LAW. Which can be used as a flush or as a spray that cools the burning associated with tear gas and pepper spray. 

How to use LAW: The eyes should be flushed with water first, followed by the LAW mixture. Flush from the inside of the eye towards the outside, with the head tilted back slightly and towards the side being flushed. The victim may have trouble getting the eye open because of the pain, but the liquid must get into the eye in order for the treatment to work. Try to reassure the victim the irritation is temporary and help is on the way. Remember that rubbing the eyes will do more harm than good. Try to blink the chemical out by letting your natural tear ducts do some of the work. The LAW mixture is also good for cleansing the mouth of pepper spray and tear gas. Simply swish or gargle the LAW liquid inside your mouth and spit. Do not swallow. You may want to rinse your mouth out with straight water afterwards.

If you don’t know how to perform these treatments, find someone who does. If trained street medics are on the scene, yell for one at the top of your lungs. 


The pain and irritation caused by pepper spray and tear gas is usually temporary. Deaths due to exposure to tear gas and pepper spray are extremely rare, but anything can happen. If you have a medical condition that might be worsened by exposure to teargas or pepper spray, find a less risky way to make your voice heard. Before attending a major demonstration where police may use chemical weapons and other forms of crowd dispersal, seek professional medical advice from a doctor or nurse. Anytime you participate in political action you should do so at your personal level of comfort. You should also think about what you’re fighting for. There are different kinds of political actions and different levels of risk for each one.

Dont forget, the worse thing about being hit with teargas is fear and confusion! So keep it together! Tear gas is not actually a gas, but a rapidly dispersing chemical agent called capsaicin that produces intense irritation in mucus membranes in the eyes, nose, mouth, throat, and lungs.
