Food is delicious. It nourishes our bodies and allows us to survive. But did you know that you can also use your food to clean and do all sorts of other cool stuff that doesn’t involve eating? Well, you can!
Here Are 10 Things You Didn’t Know Food Was Capable Of Doing:
1) Turn Coal Into Crystals
Dip a hot coal into peanut butter so that it’s totally coated. Place it in a bowl with ice then cover it with more ice. Freeze your bowl for 24 hours. Take your coal out and place it in a warm bowl of water. Rub all of the peanut butter off. You’ll find that the coal coating will also come off as you rub to reveal a beautiful crystal. The carbon dioxide in peanut butter turns coal into crystals under pressure. Learn more about this here.
2) Instantly Freeze A Bottle of Water
Pour rock salt over a bowl of ice and mix it around. Place a bottle of water into the bowl and cover it in ice. Pour some more salt over it and let it sit in for five minutes. Take the bottle out and gently tap it on a countertop. The entire bottle will freeze up right before your eyes. Learn more about instantly turning water into ice here.
