Previously we’ve been playing with fire and other potent chemicals; now we’ve got less lethal (but exciting as always) experiments to have fun with.

It doesn’t cost anything to try these new tricks – you probably have some of the necessary tools lying around in the house. All it takes is guts! Determination! See what our Lab Rat Talents came up with, as tested by Lab Rat Master, Mandi. The third experiment you will see today comes to us as a result of Stephen Grebinski’s blood, sweat and WD-40…
