How to Turn Water Into Ice in Seconds Magic Trick


Turning Water Into Ice Instantly

You may have come across videos online where people turn water into ice instantly and you have wondered how they do it. In this article I am going to show you exactly how you can do this fun magic trick in the comfort of your own home. To do this magic trick all you will need is some water, some bottles to put the water in, a freezer and a little patience. It took me quite a few attempts until I was able to get it right so keep trying if you do not have success the first time. Also people online say that you need to use distilled water however I used regular tap water and it worked fine for me.

What You Need



-A freezer


Figure Out How Long You Need To Freeze Your Water

To get this trick right you have to figure out exactly how long you need to put your water in the freezer for. obviously every freezer is going to be different so there is a little trial and error involved. It also depends on how big your water bottles are. I used 1.5 liter sprite bottles and it took about three and a half hours to get it to the right temperature for this trick. Obviously it is going to depend on your freezer though so you are going to have to experiment a little. If you get your bottle out of the freezer and ice has started to form in the bottle it means you have left it in too long. Next time leave it in for 15 minutes less and repeat this until you get it right.

Turning Your Water Into Ice

When you take your bottle of water out of the freezer and ice has not yet started to form it is time to attempt this cool magic trick. You want to get some ice or an ice block ready before you take the bottle out of the freezer. As soon as you take the bottle of water out of the freezer you want to pour some of the water on top of the ice. If you have it at exactly the right temperature the water will turn into ice. If this does not work then you want to do the opposite of what we did before. You want to leave the water in the freezer for 15 minutes longer the next time. You can also turn the water into ice by knocking the bottle of water with your hand however I was never able to achieve this. I have left a little clip of a video I made when I did this trick below so you can see what will happen when you get it right.
