Product Info

Imagine writing a note or a class handout with the instructions, "Place In Water After Reading." To their surprise the paper will dissolve in the water! This is real paper that can be written on and used in most copiers and printers. The secret lies in the fact that the paper is made of Sodium Carboxyl Methyl Cellulose (no, really, we didn't make that up.) It dissolves in cold water, hot water, steam, and most aqueous solutions. It's the perfect writing surface for secret agents, and a great way to teach about biodegradable products for waste reduction since this paper is non-toxic and environmentally safe. We recently ran a sheet of this through a color laser printer - when we put it in water and gave it a stir, the paper dissolved but the printing did not - we had a glass full of floating letters! You will get standard 8.5 x 11 inch (21.5 x 28 cm) sheets of paper. Available in packs of 15, 30, or 100 sheets. Send us a note and let us know how YOU used the dissolving paper.

  1. Outstanding product for business project

    Posted by Phil on 06 13 2016

    I searched for three days to find Water Dissolving Paper - especially from a company that could/would deliver it quickly. Science Bob Store had the product and got it to me two days BEFORE I needed it. Way to go, Science Bob Store! Oh, and it worked beautifully!

  2. Works like a dream!

    We use this for a hands on activity at camp... have about 150 people use it each day! Perfect!!

  3. Great Product

    Posted by Unknown on 05 16 2016

    We used it for a confession of sin station at our church recently, using it as a visual display that when we trust in Jesus' blood as the payment for our wrong doings, the list of sins against us is gone. This product was a powerful tool. It doesn't dissolve totally (small white fibers float in the water) but the paper and writing is gone. Great stuff! Thanks for a great product. I'll be recommending it!

  4. Dissolving Paper is great

    We use the dissolving paper in our Interactive Prayer Room for people to write their sin confessions on and then put in the water to dissolve and this gives them a visual of God washing our sins away. People give us great compliments for using this product.

  5. Used for a church event

    It was just what I needed for a church related event, and it worked great!

  6. used for church worship service

    worked well

  7. Great for Ceremony

    Posted by Robyn on 12 27 2015

    Since we cannot use flame or candles in the facility we rent, the water dissolving paper was a great alternative for our end of year ceremony of releasing the old year, and welcoming the new. Our church community enjoyed using the element of water and watching the paper dissolve. It works best if warm water is used, and you give it a little stir when you put the paper in--we used 3x3 squares, perfect size, in 4 gallon bowl. Yes, it was murky after the 40th person deposited their slip, but that only added to the symbology of letting go of the grit of the past and opening to a fresh, new start. Thanks, Science Bob!

  8. Used for Halloween Carnival

    Posted by Unknown on 10 04 2015

    We made ghosts and used them for a Halloween carnival game. Kids paid a ticket to vanish a ghost. The only problem was that it was hard to feed it through the printer. The paper is thinner than normal so it kept jamming and discoloring. So printed 8 ghosts on regular paper, and used to cut characters on 3 sheets of this at a time. Then drew eyes on the ghosts. It was a hit.

  9. paper every where but not a piece to see

    Posted by Unknown on 08 01 2015

    I was somewhat disappointed in the necessary temp of the water to work it but mixing it as you first place it in the water did help .It's fun to work with it.

  10. AWESOME!
