This Is What Happens When You Put Ivory Soap In The Microwave

We’re not sure who first thought it would be fun to zap Ivory soap in the microwave, but it looks really fun. The famed air pockets fill with steam, forming a massive soapsplosion. Frequent photo contributor Ecstatic Mark snapped this picture of the result when he nuked a small chunk of soap, about the size of the one on the left. If you don’t have both Ivory and a microwave handy, you may be wondering what that looks like while it’s microwaving. Wonder no more.
