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.
This is what happens when you microwave a bar of Ivory soap! Then you can tear it up, color it, and mold it into shapes! It's not wet and messy, either! This is awesome! - Click image to find more DIY & Crafts Pinterest pins
This is the result of one of our favorite science experiments--and it's so easy! We microwaved a bar of ivory soap and watched it expand--it's crazy how big one bar of soap can get! Afterwards we played with the soap flakes for a winter inspired sensory bin. Full directions can be found on our blog by searching "IVORY SOAP" #LINKINPROFILE.
