How to make Mountain Dew Glow In The Dark Recipe
Mountain Dew has a vibrant yellow-green colour, but have you ever thought about making it shine? Here’s how to do it:
Material Required to make Glow in the dark mountain dew:
- 20 oz Mountain Dew ™ bottle (but any 20 oz bottle will work)
- Glowstick or light bar
- Scissors or wire cutters
- Dishwashing liquid
- Hydrogen peroxide
- Sodium bicarbonate or baking soda
How to make it Glow?
- Pour or drink anything other than a small amount of soda (~ 1/4 inch). If your bottle is empty, add a little water.
- Add a drop of dishwashing liquid.
- Use scissors or wire cutters to cut the glow stick.
- Empty the contents of the glow stick into the bottle. If the liquid doesn’t flow, you can cut the glow stick into pieces and add the pieces to the bottle.
- Add 1 to 3 cups of hydrogen peroxide.
- Add a pinch of baking soda and immediately close the bottle.
- Turn off the lights (if you haven’t already) and shake the bottle vigorously.
- Do not drink the contents of the bottle. Keep it out of the reach of children or anyone else who may be tempted to drink the liquid. Modern glow sticks aren’t poisonous, but that doesn’t make them safe to eat. Also, dishwashing liquid is not edible.
Tips to make glow in the dark mountian dew
- Mountain Dew is nothing special. You don’t even need soda. The bright red bottle was made with some water, a splash of Dawn, a broken red light stick, some hydrogen peroxide caps, and a baking soda dash.
- You also absolutely don’t need peroxide or baking soda. The project works if you add a little detergent and the contents of a broken glow stick to a nearly empty 20 oz bottle.
- However, if you add peroxide and baking soda, you get an immediate luminous glow. Enjoy the glow while you can because the chemiluminescence reaction occurs quickly. If you are using peroxide, you will notice that the light begins to fade in about half a minute.
- Avoid contact with the content of the glow stick. Clean up any residue from your scissors or other cutting tools. If any product gets on your skin, wash it off immediately with soap and warm water.

What household items make glow in the dark liquid?
How do you make homemade glow sticks?
- 2 liters of distilled water.
- 50 milliliters of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution.
- 0.2 grams of luminol.
- 4 grams of sodium carbonate.
- 0.4 grams of cupric sulfate.
- 0.5 grams of ammonium carbonate.
- Two containers each containing at least 1 liter of liquid (glass beaker, glass mixing bowl, glass jar, etc.).
- Graduated cylinder (the cylinder should allow you to measure 50 milliliters and 1000 milliliters).
- Glass stirrer or stainless steel mixing spoon.
- Small bottles or containers with lids to transform into glow sticks.
- Solution A: In one of your containers, add 50 milliliters of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution to 1 liter of distilled water. Reserve for now.
- Solution B: In your other container, add 0.2 grams of luminol, 4 grams of sodium carbonate, 0.4 grams of copper sulfate, and 0.5 grams of ammonium carbonate to 1 liter of distilled water. Mix well with a glass stirrer or stainless steel mixing spoon to completely dissolve chemicals.
- Pour equal amounts of both solutions A and B into a small container with a snap / twist lid. You will see an immediate luminescent glow from the chemical reaction lasting 5 to 30 seconds.
- Slowly pouring Solution A into Solution B will produce crisp lighting effects that will last slightly longer than the quick combination of the two liquid solutions.
- Play around with small adjustments to the amount of dry chemicals that go into solution B. Tip: A little extra ammonium carbonate has a net effect when added to the final mix A and B. Try it and see!
Why is Mountain Dew bad for you?
Like other sodas, Mountain Dew is high in sugar (46 grams per 12 ounces). Too much sugar can increase your risk of obesity and diabetes. The drink also contains more caffeine than other soft drinks.
Are glow sticks radioactive?
The dyes used in glow sticks often fluoresce when exposed to ultraviolet radiation; therefore, even a spent glow stick can glow under a black light. Light intensity is high immediately after activation, then decays exponentially.
Are glow sticks toxic?
The ingredients in glow sticks are generally non-toxic and do not require medical attention in most cases. However, if the liquid from the glow stick is swallowed, it may cause an upset stomach and irritation in the mouth.
