Exploding Soap!!

I read about this online...so we thought we'd try it out! WOW...very VERY fun! I could do this all day long! It even makes the house smell nice!! Take a plain bar of IVORY soap...cut it into quarters.
Put ONE quarter in the center of a bowl...and put it in your microwave for 1 minute.  WATCH it EXPAND AND EXPAND...or EXPLODE as the Sweet Boobahs called it!  I would NOT put more than one quarter in at a time!
It only stays hot for a few seconds...and then it feels like a cross between cotton candy and toilet paper...and they had a good time shredding it into little pieces!
Soap flakes!
Then we added a tiny bit of water and made snowballs in JUNE!
Which they promptly took outside to splash about in the pool...AND MomE can use the water later to water her bushes that have spider mites.  They hate soapy water...waste not, want not!
