Glowing Gatorade Trick

About: I like inventing, experimenting, rockets, film making, and more! I consider myself a teenaged genius. I feel that with enough time I could build anything.

This is a cool trick I discovered while playing with a book light and a bottle of Gatorade.

Step 1: Materials

What's Needed:
Small bottle of Lemon-Lime Gatorade
One bulb LED booklight or flashlight

Step 2: Remove

Take the lid and label off the bottle.

Step 3: Let There Be Light!

Turn on the light.

Step 4: Light It Up!

Hold the light in the neck of the bottle.

Step 5: Also

It also works with small flashlights, just not as well. I haven't tried it with different liquids, flavors, size of the bottles, or different lights; so please experiment with these variables and let me know the results.

    Just a thought - Try illuminating it with an ultra-violet LED.  One of those little keyring bank-note testers would do.
