Here's a fun little experiment for those of you you like to melt things! Even wondered what would happen if you put LEGO cubes into pure acetone? Acetone is an organic solvent that can be found in any household that includes women :) it's most commonly found in nail polish remover, although it can be used for other purposes.
In this episode of Housold Hacker, we are shown how styrofoam, packing peanuts and LEGO bricks behave when submerged in pure acetone. You guessed it - they all turn into goo and dissolve completely in the chemical. Even a Rubik's cube is no match for the mighty acetone!
If you want to try this experiment at home, just make sure you do it outside or in a well ventilated area and steer clear of flames. Happy experimenting!

      Don't use acetone to clean wax off of a carpet unless it's made entirely of natural fibers
