Dublin: 10 °C Monday 8 March, 2021

Did you know that you can pop a balloon with an orange?

You definitely need to know how to do this.

HELL YEAH, SCIENCE. Sick of having to pop kids’ balloons with pins and other sharp objects?

Skip it all, and just use an orange peel. You don’t even have to touch the balloon to burst it. You evil genius, you.

How? The limonene oil in the orange peel dissolves the rubber of the balloon with a simple drop. It’s also highly flammable and can be used to start fires, according to the video’s description.

It’s basically the most reckless essential oil of all.
