Exploding Soap.


This video shows how three simple ingredients (soap, Hydrogen Peroxide, and dissolved Potassium Iodide) is all it takes to make a pretty neat, but relatively safe, chemical reaction. IMPORTANT - if you try this, make sure to wear goggles. As one of the commenters pointed out, hydrogen peroxide can burn your eyes.

Fluff - is it really? My mom used to wash my eyes out with hydrogen peroxide as a kid (if I got dirt in them or scratched them while playing outside). Is it only strong hydrogen peroxide that causes problems, or am I in for trouble down the road?
