Chemical Reactions

Last week, Grant, Julia and I did some experiments with chemical reactions with common household items. (Egg whites, salt water, sugar water, vinegar, milk, lemon juice, and baking soda.) We spent a lot of time guessing what will happen when we mix certain things together, mixing them and then recording the results.
The best reactions were, of course, the baking soda and vinegar and baking soda and lemon juice. Honestly, the kids could do this one over and over again.

This lemon juice and baking soda concoction made a good, organic cleaner for my sink!
