This is Nick, a freshman at Tellico Plains High School, we are doing a science fair and I am doing a Baking Soda Bomb. Do you have any advice for me?
Question Date: 2016-12-08
Answer 1:

Are you planning to put any detergent or soap in your bomb? I saw a kid making big messes with baking soda and vinegar, and I think she must have had detergent in the mix, to get such a bubbly mess all over the table cloth. That's just a thought. I don't have any other advice, except to try making your bomb in different ways. For example, what mixture of baking soda and vinegar works best?

Answer 2:

Um... prepare to get wet. If it explodes, it will spray water all over everything.
