Ivory Soap

I saw this experiment online forever ago. Today we tried it. When you microwave ivory soap it expands...kinda looks like a giant marshmallow in the microwave. The science behind it is interesting. Unlike other soaps, Ivory Soap is full of air, which is what causes it to expand when heated up. There were lots of "oohs" and "aahhs" as it puffed up.
