Common household chemical? Just checked. I'm flat out of Aluminum Fluoride and Platinum/Calomel. The Argon tank is empty too. I do, as it happens, I do have a bit of HCl in the garage. Can I substitute peanut butter and laundry detergent for the chemicals the experimenters used?
Aluminum Fluoride -> cut up pieces of aluminum foil and put in mouthwash then heat in microwave for 2 minutes
Platinum/Calomel -> put spark plugs in a twix and place over medium heat in a sauce pan.
