Step 3 – Add a drop of dish soap into the center of the milk

How Does the Magic Rainbow Milk Science Experiment Work?

The dish soap causes the fat and the water in the milk to separate and spread apart. The result is the dancing motion of the food coloring in the milk. Whole Milk and 2% Milk contain more fat than other milk, so that is why it is important to use one of those kinds of milk for the experiment.
