ebay for $6.25 a pound.

i amaze....
but where can i get sodium acetate???


Very cool...

i'd love to see some practical applications

Your creating a super saturated solution, it isnt turning to ice, it's crystallizing.

whatever, it looks realistic enough to fool my friends

okay, im a magician. this will be a cool trick. that's practical.

what happens if you poke it and leave your finger in the liquid/ice?

youre screwed!



how long does it take to melt or is it like dry ice

i heard that sodium acetate is poisonous, so i wouldn't put it in someone's drink

it's called food grade sodium acetate, you can eat it but it tastes nasty

SO how are you guys doing?

i just bought some of that on ebay and got over 1 lb of the stuff for under 15 bucks, check out on ebay and get it ,its gonna be awsome lol Email me at

Aaronlime1 (on my other account)lol

cannot wait to try this. neither can my boys....

Omg! just touch it and it turns to ice!! lol THATS SO COOL!!

is thr a time limit on to how long til it freezes or does it have to be disturbed or what

K So im def. trying this one.

I have some. it gets realy hot. Same stuff that is in some of does hand and boot warmers that they sale at ski places for 2$ each little pack. Now If you or your freind have access to a food saver bag sealer you can make your own reusable hand warmers. the food grade bags used for "Food savers can be boiled and frozen. I keep some in my snowmobile.

will it instantly freeze or do i have to poke it or what?


damn nigga dats duh coodest #$%@ eva

Can someone who has tried this tell me if it freezes from time, or if it actually is your touch?

it freezes when you ad a crystal of sodium acetate.

i let my supersaturated liqued cool in the fridge overnight. when i checked it in the morning long (about 1.5 to 2 centimeter), very thin crystals had grown in the bottom of the glass. they survive at room temp to this day (about 3 weeks) in an airtight container. can some one tell me what they are? are they pure sodium acetate?

how much water and sodium acetate do u need?

i ned the? name this music...plz

i ned the? name this music...plz

cool i wanna do that

i wonder what would happen if you left your finger in there as it was "freezing" lol

can you make it liquid again though or is it one time use?

canyou eat it after it turns to ice
