SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. -

Litter crews found five "shake and bake" meth labs on Friday along two public roads in Spartanburg County.

The shake and bake labs, or "one-pot" labs, are cheap and quick ways to make methamphetamine by mixing the ingredients -- including pseudoephedrine -- in one plastic bottle.

By doing so, the user puts himself at risk of being burnt by an explosion because of the highly flammable ingredients. Even after the meth is extracted from the bottle, the leftover contents remain flammable and can cause burns if picked up.

Greenville and Spartanburg Counties saw significant rises in the numbers of one-pot meth labs in 2012 compared to 2011, but 2013 has brought with it a gradual slowdown.
