    We also recommend making a platform out of paper towels, or towels that you do not care about ruining since the wine will most likely spill over the top during the experiment
    .

    Take your piece of plastic you cut out and place it over the glass of water
    .
    Carefully pick up your glass of water while pressing the plastic on top, then flip it over quickly.

    Hold your glass of water as you slide the plastic square out very slightly from between the glasses
    .
    Watch as the wine switches places with the water!

    We found that the wine was not floating to the top fast enough on our first try
    .
    To fix this problem, pull the plastic square further out to speed up the experiment.

    If you are interested in how this experiment works, it is because water is more dense than wine, so the wine naturally wants to float to the top, while the water wants to sink to the bottom
    .
    As you can see, the water and wine have switched quite nicely.

    In order to get the glass back to where we started, you must hold the top of the glass while carefully sliding the plastic back along with the glass
    .
    Once the top glass is near the edge of the bottom glass, you are going to flip the glass back over while holding the plastic square tightly to the brim.
