Dissolving Styrofoam Cups in Acetone

In their latest video, Let’s Melt This dissolved a series of styrofoam cups with clever drawings into a dish of acetone. Although dissolving and melting are two different chemical processes, it’s still interesting to watch the cups as they are quickly reduced to goo.

Acetone can be found in nail polish remover and is well known for dissolving styrofoam into a melting glob of awesomeness.
