How can I make a 1:1 mixture of solidox and sugar insensitive to friction and shock without making it insensitive to heat?

Can you substitue white sugar for brown sugar, or vice versa if you only have one type and the recipe calls for the other? Earlier I was baking cookies and needed white sugar, but I only had brown. Could I have used brown sugar intead of going to the store for white? If I can use either sugar, do I use the same amount? Thanks for your help!

I would like to know that brown sugar used to make garbage enzyme is the type that I can buy easily from grocery store or not.Please reply me. Thank you.
Well I just came back from a vacation in Vietnam and I saw that there were these machines that squeezed the juice from sugar cane, creating a very tasty drink might I add. Well I looked up how much one of these machines would cost and I found out that they are particularly pricey and unaffordable to the average Joe. So my burning question is "How do you make a inexpensive sugar cane juicer?" P.S. On another topic, "How do you grow sugar cane?" would be a good follow up to my burniing question.

Hi all, Does anyone else keep sugar gliders? I have 3 and make a lot of my own pouches, bonding pouches (as shown below) and toys out of coconuts, piñatas etc. Are these things that would be of use to anyone as a tutorial? I think ferrets and rats would use pouches too, but the patterns would have to be bigger. Piñatas would work though. Any thoughts? One of my friends did say that she would use my Batpouch as a clutch bag, so maybe I should post them anyway. LMAO :D

Most of the sites discussing piezoelectricity mention that sugar crystals can be used, but I have not found any examples of them being used. I've just tried it with about a 1cm chunk of low quality (conglomerate of small ~3mm crystals) crystal, and got a good 100mV wave when tapped with a pencil. I've not tried applying a signal to it yet, and some better single crystals are growing at the moment, so I was wondering how well it works compared to commercial piezoelectric compounds. I've not done anything like this before, so if anyone knows where I can find information of the best way to mount and apply a signal to the crystal, it would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

As i said i want to add a self start to 1 hp petrol/kerosene engine . i know this is quite difficult but i am a tech lover & i am working as maintenance in-charge in hotel. The main reason behind this question is we have small business of sugar cane juice in our town since last 20 years(almost that time when i was 4 years) which is set up in a small go cart.now i want make some smart changes in it. So the mechanism which is used for crushing cane is powered by that engine through belt pulley drive( as everybody knows). To start the engine we have to pull the fly wheels of sugar cane machine which very hard, difficult & arm braking procedure for my mom, grand ma & younger brother. So i want make it more user friendly & efficient which will reduce pain, tiredness & increase human work efficiency. I hope the description is enough to describe my concern.I have attached some images of machine. Please guide what & how to do. All your replies will be appreciated. Mail :- firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks in advance.

I built the cotton candy machine (seen here: https://www.instructables.com/id/cotton-candy-machine/) and everything works as it should, except the sugar doesn't melt easily. I have to stop the motor and heat it up intermittently, instead of the intended use of being able to have it spin continuously. I have a feeling that part of this reason is because my lighter can't get hot enough, and that the machine is on a dremel. It only goes 6,500 rpm but I have a feeling this is too fast for the sugar to heat up. Any ideas? I took apart an old soldering iron and have the heat source, but I don't know how to mount it. Or does anybody know where I might find something to attach the CCM to a regular motor? Thanks!

Making maple syrup is a great activity for those of us lucky enough in the north, but it's also very energy intensive. A wood fire is not the worst of the energy choices to reduce the sap, but there must be someone out there with the creativity to come up with a DYI solar evaporator. any ideas?

I am doing a glass project where I need to find a certain kind of candy inspired by the glass process of millefiori. Sticky candy, a brand in Australia and a few other countries, uses this technique but none of the designs work for me and I don't think they ship to the U.S. or Canada. Anyone know what this candy is called/ other producers of it? Thanks! http://www.sticky.com.au/index.php?Exquisite_hand_made_lollies_and_candy_for_gifts_and_promotions&cat=16 here is an example of Sticky candy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millefiori and here is the glass process I'm talking about. :)

I need to get 2 semi-circle shape hard candy pieces and bind them together. Is a molten sugar glue gun work for this? Is it fairly sage to use? Safe to consume? I need to do this for mass scale... Not at the beginning though....

Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories has a great project showing how to make One Hundred Percent EDIBLE Googly Eyes! Googly eyes definitely make anything better by allowing you to heavily personify it. I fondly remember putting a pair on the dishwasher, and suddenly our whole lexicon changed from "don't overload the dishwasher" to "be nice to dishwasher, it's had a hard day."I'm looking forward to making these and putting them on a piece of roast bison or a big salmon fillet! "Please, please don't eat me!"

I don't want to delve deeply into soapmaking. I just thought it would be easy to add sugar or salt (for that scrubby feeling) and old body spray (for scent) to my generic refill hand soap. But I've been playing around and I just wind up with completely unsuitable textures. Basically it gets really runny and no matter how much sugar/salt I put in there, it doesn't flow through the dispenser so it doesn't get used. Thanks.

I know that ants have the instinct to bring all of the food they find to the Queen, so if I put ants in an ant farm-type-of-setting, will the ants even eat the food I give to them or will they not eat it and starve? I know ants like sugary foods and dead bugs, but I need to feed them with a plant that I can grow. I am doing this for a Science Fair, and I am testing the effects of a chemical on a plant, which is in turn being fed to the ants. I need a plant that my ants will eat. Any ideas? And I have about three weeks to a month to grow this plant, and it is Winter, which makes it even harder, but I am planning on growing it inside. Any ideas on a plant to feed ants with? I am dealing with the large ants that live near my home in Gilbert, Arizona if that helps. There are two types of ants that I can tell and I am dealing with the big ones (if that makes any sense). They might be fire ants, but I have a hard time telling. The picture below is not one I took, it's from google, so it's not exact, but something like that. Thank you!

The lesson says turbinado sugar won't melt during baking. Is this only due to the crystal size? Is there a chemical property also holding it back from melting? Is it possible to grind/mill this sugar to a smaller size so that you can use it in more applications?

I'm having a hard time finding a recipe for a cake to bake for my class. I really want to celebrate that we finally finished the portfolios for admission to our next semester, but I don't want to bring a cake only some can eat (or only some can eat with good conscience). Problem is, we have a nut allergic, a gluten and cassein intolerant, a lactose intolerant, a vegan, and someone who has to avoid refined sugar. I can't find any vegan egg substitutes, or xanthan gum or anything like that, and all the gluten-free flours I've found reguire some kind of gluten replacement. I CAN however get all kinds of flour, like soy, rice, chickpeas, tapioca etc. but I don't know which to use or how. AND I have a sugar replacement that should work as a direct 1:1 replacement in baking good of all kinds. So... Anyone has any recipes, or advises about substitutes? :)

Anyone here ever get samples from maxim? Recently they now send them in cool little boxes that says maxim and attention electrostatic sensitive devices. I want to get rid of the maxim logo and just keep the static warning so that I can have a cool clear project box that tells people that if they open it that they should be careful because of the static electricity. The text feels slightly raised to the touch. I do NOT want to scratch up the box. BTW, small question, anyone ever have trouble adding notes to pictures? Whenever I create an instructable I have to add it in preview mode, but once in a while I can do it in edit mode. For example I had to post this topic and edit it to add notes to the picture.
