How to Vinegar/Baking Soda Bottle Bomb

How to Vinegar/Baking Soda Bottle Bomb
Soda Bottle Bomb Ingredients

* What you will need: -A plastic water bottle - the only ones I have been succesful with are the really cheap ones and dasani. -Baking soda - about 2 tbsp per bomb -Vinegar - about a cup (8 oz.) per bom

1.Step 1

Start by fill the bottle half full with vinegar. Then cut the bag as shown. Put the bag into the mouth of the bottle as shown, and fill it with 2 tbsp. (roughly) of baking soda. Push the bag with the baking soda down into the bottle, but don't let the contents mix. You are now ready to detonate.

2.Step 2

When you have found a safe place to blow it up, such as the street (not your garage, or your room, or secret underground lab), start shaking the bottle to mix the active ingredients. The bottle will start to fizz up and expand, so wait about 8 seconds to charge it up, then either throw it at the ground or up in the air. You don't want to hit the cap on the ground, or it will just let all the compressed air out in a non-exciting way. You want to hit the side or bottom of the bottle, either way it will blow out the bottom.

  1. Ever since I was a kid, I've been experimenting on stuff just like this one. A soda bottle bomb with a few Mentos candies is definitely worth trying. As per my observation, kids these days spend more time on video games and TV programs than outdoor activities and awesome experimental stuff. This study ( actually tackles the difference between the lifestyle of parents during their childhood and the lifestyle of their kids these days.
