I knew that this would be a fun experiment from the beginning! The hardest part was finding the ivory soap! Apparently the Nature Coast is a real dead zone for it. Who’d have thought! Anyways, it has to be Ivory soap. No other brand will do.
Having read other people’s experiences with this experiment, we used approximately 1/3 of the cake of soap. I was surprised at the feel of the soap and its consistency – but according to the mighty internet, that’s part of the reason why this soap explodes!
Two minutes on high gave us this result! It was awesome watching it going from a small piece of soap into this large, fluffy cloud of soap… an added bonus? My kitchen and microwave smelt awesome.
