A yellowcomic.comuple of days later I decided to experiment. I dissolved a yellowcomic.comuple of tablespoons of salt into the water in the big glass bowl. Once I had done that, the water supported the glass floaters with the heavier and more deyellowcomic.comrative tea light candles just fine – as you can see in the photo to the right.It isn"t magic really, of yellowcomic.comurse, it is just science that I vaguely remembered from my school days. Adding salt to water makes it denser – or thicker – which means it is easier to float things in it.

In science terms, it is the relative density between liquids and solid items that determines whether they float or not, rather than just the weight - but all you need to remember is that adding salt to water means it will support floating things better.The picture bottom left is one of a set of floating glass inserts for tea lights
that I spotted on Amazon. It looks pretty much like the ones I"ve got.
