I've watched Ted Allen and the PopSci guy microwave some soap a few times on Ted's Food Detectives show. It looked really cool. I wondered how it would work with some glycerin soap we got at Disney World last year. I cut off a piece and gave it a try. It eventually bubbled and started to foam but was not as spectacular as the one on TV (maybe I should try Ivory or something).
Anyway... what it did do is fill the microwave, kitchen and now the house with the intense smell of the soap. I can barely breathe. Ugh.
Heather will probably think it smells nice when she gets home.
