dang... your rocket is too elaborate...
merely take a 1/4 can of a popular crystalized drain cleaner (draino?)
pour in about a 1/4 to 1/2 cup of laundry bleach....
pop the plastic lid cap back on the tin can...
set upside down after shaking for
5 2 seconds (the cap facing downwards)
Keep well back as the mixture heats up & creates massive pressure!
the 'chemical rocket' will launch well over 100', go 'pfffffttt', and probably chemically burn you lawn in the process...
this experimental rocket was done by me & fellow students over 38 years ago.... and its still a strut-your-stuff thing to do with cdommon household
hydrogen peroxide is also a catalyst in bombs like the London underground bombs...(another common household item)
