This page, from Science is Fun, is one of several experiments for students to do at home with supervision. In this experiment, students make "hard" water from distilled water, which contains no minerals, and then they compare the sudsing ability of a detergent in soft and hard water. There are detailed instructions accompanied by a list of materials needed. Visitors can link to more experiments from this page.
