How To Do the Ivory Soap in a Microwave Science Project
Microwaving Ivory soap is a fun project that won't hurt your microwave, but it will make your whole house smell soapy clean. Step 1. Place on a microwave safe plate in the center of the oven. Step 2. Cook the bar of soap on HIGH for 2 minutes. Don't take your eyes off the bar of soap as it begins to expand and erupt into beautiful puffy clouds. Be careful not to overcook your soap souffle.
Pretty puffy homemade soap clouds to feel & squish-DID IT-what can I say but TOTALLY AWESOME!!! especially watching it grow in the microwave-B used food coloring to "paint" it, but I think she would have been happy just watching it grow al day-we cut our bar in half, and it was still very impressive!
