Davis Bombs

When I was down in Virginia visiting family, they shared with me this awesome new trick!
We started calling them Davis bombs, but I’m pretty sure I need to come up with a new name! Haha…

What happens is bits of tin foil are crumpled up to cover the bottom of a plastic bottle…we used anything from a small water bottle to a giant 3 liter soda bottle! Next, “The Works” toilet bowl cleaner must be poured into the bottle, just enough to cover the layer of tin foil. Seal the cap and….RUN!!

In a few minutes, the whole thing explodes with a tremendous BANG!!! 
We haven’t exactly figured out why The Works (found at Walmart) is the right solution, but I’m sure some Chemistry class somewhere would enjoy that fun project!
Enjoy!!!
