We have been contacted over the years with some strange uses for the ground peppers and pepper sauces: Please keep in mind we are not responsible for any damage or injury if you try any of these. They are ways we have heard our customers using the products in other ways than intended by the makers. We will take no responsibility for any outcome. Some of our products are the world's hottest peppers and can be very dangerous! Do NOT try at home and proceed with caution:

One customer uses the Naga Bhut Jolokia ground pepper to keep the mules and horses from chewing on the fences.
"I use it to mix with either linseed oil or mineral oil to make a paste and paint on wooden fences so my horse and mule don`t chew the fences and we are not constantly needing to replace posts or slats. IT WORKS WONDERFULLY."
another client puts the Red Savina ground pepper and mixes it with paint, applies it to the bottom of his boat to keep the barnacles off.
