Also...............

Take a bottle of regular water, add two or three drops of bleach, and place it in direct sunlight. When it gets dark, the bottle should glow.

Chemical reaction, don't ask me, I just drink. :flop:


Cheers

We used to go caving a bunch.......that sounds like the best solution for an emergency caving light/lantern.......


Any idea how long it lasts for on a single reaction????

here ya go....

Actually that won't work, you will need Luminol, not Mountain Dew. The YouTube video is actually a scam, i'm sorry to say. What the guy did is he put glowstick fluid in the mountain dew bottle. The color of the soda disguises the glowstick fluid so that when he pours it into a glass you just see Mountain Dew. When he shakes it up it activates the glowstick fluid to make it glow.

This is the actual recipe for glowsticks. Theres no way that the simple household items that were shown in the video could make a glow.

4 g sodium carbonate
0.2 g luminol
0.5 g ammonium carbonate
0.4 g copper sulfate pentahydrate
approx. 1 litre of distilled water.
50 ml of 3% hydrogen peroxide

So the answer to your question is that it actually does NOT last at all, because the experiment wont work in the first place.

However, if you're looking to save some money you can usually get an extra half-hour or so out of a glowstick if you boil it for a few minutes.
