Help Meeeeeeee: Melting Styrofoam Cups In Acetone

March 24, 2016


This is a video of a guy melting Styrofoam cups in a plate of acetone. He even draws a smiley face on one so you feel bad for it. I did not feel bad for it. Again, this is another one of those times where I really wish you could smell Youtube videos. Acetone already smells amazing by itself, but with melted Styrofoam? I bet that's really something. My parents used to let me pump the gas when we were filling up the car when I was a kid until they caught me purposefully dripping some on my shirt to sniff for later. I love the smell of gasoline so much I purposely moved into an apartment directly behind a gas station. Location location location.

Keep going for the video, then let's go to the hobby store and smell things.

Thanks to hairless, who agrees the secret to picking good cleaning products is a little taste test.

    I'll tell you one thing, Doc. That cup weren't no rabbit.

    True story, something in spray-paint also dissolves Styrofoam. When I was a kid I spent hours making this really cool castle out of Styrofoam, then tried to spray paint it gray.

    It just made a puddle of melted foam and tears. :-(

  • Most spray-paints contain acetone.

    Ha! I did the same thing.... tried to make a fake guitar out of styrofoam for a talent show, then attempted to paint it.... whoops.

    im sad now

  • GeneralDisorder

    Take note everyone... That white slime would make a good napalm substitute... Not that i would know or anything.

    Diesel fuel works better for that, not that I know or anything.

  • Gasoline ain't bad for it either, not that... Nah, screw it, I know full well. (It's substantially gooeyer than with acetone, though...)
