My 15-year-old kitchen chemist is doing various "experiments" for his chemistry class.

"Mom, do you have ammonia?"

"Mom, do you have epsom salts?"

cough cough cough cough cough cough cough cough cough

He's okay, but it seems that milk of magnesia experiment stinks.

He has also asked for (and received) isopropyl alcohol, food coloring, oil and water, vinegar and an egg (I have to let him pickle a perfectly good egg for 24 hours).

I offered to mix some cornstarch in water for him to play with before he goes to bed. :)
