I tried baking soda, pepper, oregano and other substances and also sugar. Some didn't work at all and others froze and created a smooth substance over-top and then broke because the ice cubes where way too heavy.

i tried salt it workedfor 3 seconds.I also tried sugar which didn't work at all. cinnamin also did not work. black pepper, white pepper and lemon prpper didn't work either.I used 3 different length's of string, thread, rope and waxed string. I found that the thread worked best on the salt, the rope was way to thick, and the waxed string was too waxy. It was really fun doing this experiment!

well first I gathered the materials needed and got to work. When I started the salt worked. I then used sugar which also worked. When I did the pepper it stayed on , but not for long. I also tried flour which did not work. In the end pepper , salt and sugar went ice fishing!

WE first got all the materials we put the salt on and we waited 30 seconds and after that the salt froze with the ice cube then we tried sugar which did not work the string just slip off the ice cube.probably cause the sugar is not like salt.

First, I collected the stuff I needed and that would be a cup,2 ice cubes,a string and ingredients like salt,sugar,flour and pepper ....well thats what I used since my mom wouldn't let me use anymore.....anyway I put the ice cube in the cup then told my mom to hold the string I sprinkled salt first and it worked then I cleaned the ice cube and told my mom to hold the string again then I sprinkled sugar over it and it did work then I cleaned the ice cube ......again told my mom to hold the string........again and sprinkled flour over it but it didn't work so I cleaned the ice cube one more time the told my mom to hold the string one more time and sprinkled pepper over it and again it didn't work.The experiment was cool!
