Step 8: Hot Ice Preperation

For this, you will need:
~ Your just made homemde sodium acetate
~ Pan
~ Stove
~ Distiled water
~ Container for cooling
~ Container for extra crystals

NOTE: Make sure all containers are clean!
<p>to JillianM3 - why would you write a comment with such a sarcastic tone? My daughter was 11 years old when she asked that question 2 years ago, she was doing a science fair project - so no, she had not taken a basic chemistry class - not even at high school or college level as was still at primary school and everything she has learnt is self taught, so now she could answer that question herself. So no she did not know the importance of distilled water and had probably never heard of it. That is the beauty of this site, learning curves and helpful people, not pompous people who think others should know basics, &quot;Um...&quot; (Lose the attitude and it would have been a pleasant and helpful reply) - that was from my 13 yr old.</p>
i dont get why in another instructable - nerdrage - he just boiled vinegar and baking soda and that is what he used to make hot ice. why have you done that step, then reboiled it with water? confused. also would it work with tap water not distilled?
Um, if you haven't already taken a basic chemistry class (high school or college level) you should know the importance of distilled water, as tap water has many impurities that can adversely effect the reaction. Distilled water has been boiled, evaporated, recollected and filtered to prevent anything bad from happening.
I think you guys could face your pictures correctly
This looks like fun. Any chance you could rotate some of your images and make them all look a bit more uniform? What a great science project!
