Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey:
1. Submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Don’t use glass, Turkish protesters have used big plastic water gallons.
2. Throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread. Use a gas mask, burning CS gas creates toxic gas locally.
Use gloves, gas grenades get hot and can burn your hands.
