You Can Squeeze Orange Peel to Blow Up a Balloon… WTF?
Oranges are great but often the amount of effort involved in peeling them makes them just… not really worth it. In fact though, peeling oranges can be super fun thanks to a science experiment that lets you turn that peel into a fuel for blowing up balloons.
Using a substance called limonene – a chemical in orange’s oil – it’s actually possible to blow up balloons with just the tiniest bit of juice squeezed out. What’s more, you could use multiple peels and start a fire that way. Who knew! Science is at its best when it’s blowing stuff up…
