The highest elephant’s toothpaste fountain is 20 m (60 ft 7 in), and was achieved by Fletcher Rollinson, Mark Rober, Bob Pflugfelder, Jacob LaRocca, John Marcu, and Dale Leishman (all USA) in Gridley, California, USA on 22 August 2020.
What’s the difference between Devil’s toothpaste and elephant toothpaste?
What is Devil’s Toothpaste? Devil’s Toothpaste is almost the same thing as Elephant’s Toothpaste, but the catalyst for the “volcano” explosion is unknown. The only person to perform a large-scale experiment with Devil’s Toothpaste is Mark Rober from YouTube.
What happens if you touch elephant toothpaste?
The oxygen gas produced gets trapped in the soap which produces the big ball of foam. The reaction produces oxygen gas, water and iodine. That is why the foam has a yellow color. If you were to touch this foam, your hand would be stained yellow just as if you put iodine on your skin.
How do you make the biggest elephant toothpaste?
- Measure 1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide, and carefully pour it into the bottle.
- Add a big squirt of dish soap into the bottle, and swirl gently to mix.
- If you want to make your foam a single color, add a few drops of food coloring directly into the hydrogen peroxide, and swirl the bottle gently to mix.
How hot is Devil’s toothpaste?
The resulting explosion of food coloring and foam is more impressive than any special effect from a Hollywood movie. Warning: The chemical reactions in this video are highly exothermic, causing the foam to reach temperatures of 200 °F and higher.
Is Devil’s toothpaste safe?
The Devil’s toothpaste, the engineer says, was made from a proprietary mixture, and is far more dangerous than elephant’s toothpaste. The resultant show it puts on, however, is perhaps even better than the elephant toothpaste’s.
Does elephant toothpaste get hot?
The oxygen-filled bubbles, which make up the foam, are actually the remainder of what happens when the hydrogen peroxide breaks down into water and oxygen. The bottle felt warm to the touch because this was an exothermic reaction in which energy is given off in the form of heat.
Is Elephant toothpaste hot or cold?
The 500 ml of water has a heat capacity of around 2100 J/K. So, the solution gets about 12 K hotter.
Can you burn yourself with elephant toothpaste?
The original elephant toothpaste reaction, which uses a much higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide, can cause both chemical burns and thermal burns.
Can you eat elephant toothpaste?
It really does look like toothpaste fit for an elephant, but it is also a fun reaction experiment; one you’ll want to do over and over. Common sense warning: Do not eat or brush your teeth with elephant toothpaste!
Who has the world record for Devil’s toothpaste?
The GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for the highest elephant’s toothpaste fountain is 10 m (32 ft 9.7 in), achieved by Technopolis and MNM (both Belgium) in Mechelen, Antwerp, Belgium, on 25 November 2017.

Engineer Mark Rober has even filled a swimming pool with the stuff. Now, he’s made something far more reactive and explosive, dubbed “devil’s toothpaste.” He then supersized the experiment for a very special fan.
