Turning plastic gloves into grape soda

Chemical transformations have always fascinated me and I’ve done a few (in my opinion) cool ones on this channel. For example, I turned my own pee into artificial sweetener and toilet paper into moonshine. For this one though, I’ll be doing something that I’ve been wanting to do for years and I’ll be turning plastic gloves into grape soda.

If you’ve never seen NileRed on YouTube, you’re missing out. This guy does a lot of long-form chemistry experiments and explains exactly what’s happening and why. He talks about the procedures he tries and what ones didn’t work; an outstanding science channel.

I watched some of this one with the kids, and my six year old seemed to have a lightbulb moment about how the same “chemicals” can be in different things and have different forms.
