Be careful.

This experiment uses a microwave and heats up a bar of soap. The soap will get quite hot so do not touch the soap for at least two minutes after this experiment is over. Even if the outside of the soap is cool the center can be quite hot...BE CAREFUL!


You need:

Ivory Soap


Paper Plate


1. Take the soap out of the wrapper (you may want to break it in half) and put it on the plate.

2. Put it in the microwave.

3. Turn the microwave on for 1 minute.

4. The soap gets all big and puffy! You really have to try this one. Go here for a video of this.
