Experiment with Color & Liquids

If you add a drop of food coloring to a glass of water, the food coloring mixes into the water. If you add a drop of oil to water, the oil will not mix with the water. Now place a drop of liquid detergent on top of the oil drop, and the oil drop practically explodes into the water.

Try this experiment of adding colors to a pan of milk and add detergent to watch a colorful display
