DreAndreas: yeah, of course you put a freaking glow-stick in things to make it glow. you
don't put the holy freaking bible in.
Sity Kimm: The whole point is to make it a glow stick and not actually have to buy
C.S. Jones: There should be a warning on this - I made it, drank it, and turned into a
superhero named Captain Fedora.
Eimantas Andrikis: pfff... lame. You put glow stick in and it glows...

Stephanie Martinez: Doesn't work without glow stick
FaultedCosine: Or you could just mix mnt dew with some tonic water and stick it under a
blacklight. And you could still drink it after if you like really bitter
Tony Malanche: Is this effect permanent?
Average Joe: For all of you who are complaining about this video, all Ms./Mrs.
Helmenstine is trying to say is:
1) Whoever originally said Mt. Dew, bicarbonate, and peroxide, produces
luminescence, is lying and THEIR VIDEO(S) is/are a hoax. To prove this, she
does the experiment according to how they state to show it, indeed, IS
2) She shows by adding the dish detergent and glow stick reagents, you have
the necessary ingredients for luminescence to occur, and THAT'S HOW THE
ORIGINAL VIDEO FAKED THE GLOWING.
For an understanding of luminescence look up "glow sticks chemistry" and
read up on it, THAT'S CLEARLY WHAT SHE DID. Wikipedia shows the Organic
Synthesis mechanism as well as explanation of the Chemistry occurring.
All of those of you pissed off and saying "why make a glowing liquid using
a glow stick," again, all she is showing is how the people in the previous
video(s) faked their results. THAT'S ALL SHE'S DOING!!!
If you want to get pissed off, GET MAD AT THE MORONS WHO FAKED THE FIRST
VIDEO. They obviously came up with the video to make money off of your
view, plague THEIR VIDEO with angry comments!
Also, please read video descriptions carefully and think about what is
being said by the person overall before posting comments. You're only
making yourself look like fools who cannot read and/or think for
yourselves. You CAN think for yourselves, right?
With all that said, thank you for correcting this false display of
Chemistry going around the internet Ms./Mrs. Helmenstine, coming from a
fellow Chemist, and keep up your great work!!
