I believe that comes under the "don't teach viewers how to do illegal and/or dangerous things" rule. That's why on TV the formulas characters use to make bombs from "ordinary household products" would just give you a clean bowl rather than a bomb.

FWIW, TV lockpicking is now shown generally to require two pics.
