The Ultimate Guide to the Dry Stop Fire Spray

The Dry Stop Fire Spray is a revolutionary fire spray from Prepared Hero that puts out the most common fires, including electrical, wood, paper, gas, fuel, and grease fires.

But how does it work? How do you use it? Who can use it? Where should you put it? How many do you need? 

In this post, we'll talk about everything you need to know about the Dry Stop Fire Spray. 

How Does the Dry Stop Fire Spray Work?

The Dry Stop Fire Spray contains an extinguishing agent and features a non-aerosol delivery that quickly extinguishes many types of fire. It also prevents fires from reigniting even when the heat and fuel source have been turned off. 

The Dry Stop Fire Spray has been rigorously tested for dependability and is approved by emergency response officials across the US. It's also CE HS&E-certified and meets EN-1869:1997 standards.

More affordable than fire extinguishers and safer than home remedies, the Dry Stop Fire Spray is one of the best fire safety products on the market. Here are the differences between the Dry Stop Fire Spray and a regular fire extinguisher:

Dry Stop Fire Spray Regular Fire Extinguisher
Lightweight, easy to carry Heavy, hard to carry
Easy to store Needs more space for storage
Can put out all types of fire at home Can only put out specific types of fire
100% biodegradable Mostly made of non-biodegradable materials
Non-toxic Toxic
Easy to clean Hard to clean
Safe for kids and pets  Not safe for kids and pets

How to Use the Dry Stop Fire Spray

Here’s how to use the Dry Stop Fire Spray the right way: 

1. Tear the tab off. 

First, tear the tab off and hold the can three to four feet away from the fire. 

2. Aim at the base of the fire.

Next, aim the nozzle at the base of the fire instead of the flames. 

Note that the fuel source is at the base of the fire. If you aim the spray at the flames, you'll make the fire worse. 

3. Spray from side to side.

Then, press the button to release the contents. Sweep the can back and forth. Keep aiming the nozzle at the base of the fire, and work your way around the area until the flames die. 

Don't stop spraying until you completely extinguish the fire. Any remaining embers or hot spots can reignite and restart the fire.

4. Discard after use.

We don't recommend reusing the Dry Stop Fire Spray because there might not be enough left in the canister to extinguish another fire. Depending on the size of the fire, you might need more than one can.

Where Should You Put the Dry Stop Fire Spray?

Keep the Dry Stop Spray in high-risk locations, including the kitchen and garage. Make sure you store it in easily accessible locations.

You can also put it in your bug out kit, in your car emergency kit, and bring it on camping trips to extinguish out-of-control campfires or barbecues.

How Many Do You Need?

We recommend at least one Dry Stop Fire Spray per person and one per high-risk location. This is usually four to 12 cans. We also offer bundle discounts. The more cans you buy, the lower the price goes. 

Who Can Use It? 

Almost anyone can use the Dry Stop Fire Spray from Prepared Hero.

Older family members, teens, and—with proper, responsible instruction— kids can use it to put out small fires before they become huge disasters.


Lightweight, efficient, and easy to use, the Dry Stop Fire Spray is a fantastic alternative to traditional, bulky fire extinguishers. Its effectiveness and user-friendly design make it a must-have for every household and vehicle.
