Product Info

Imagine writing a note or a class handout with the instructions, "Place In Water After Reading." To everyone's 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. dissolving paper

    Posted by K. Brown on 12 04 2017

    There needs to be a couple of experiments suggested with this paper. We found that if you write on it with pencil then the writing may float while the paper dissolved. it is also cloudier than ads show.

  2. Dissolving paper works great!

    I use it for a magic trick...tear it up, drop it in water, stir, drink. I add a bit of red food coloring to the water so you can't see that the paper that gets dropped in to the water is blank.

  3. Didn't quite fit the bill

    Posted by Unknown on 06 12 2017

    The paper dissolved in water but only after I gave it some stirs and moved the water around. I'd once had dissolvable paper that instantly burst in a tiny, quick little cloud like magic, and that's what I had hoped for this time. I can use this paper but not quite as flexibly as I'd hope.

  4. Works Perfect for My Need

    I bought this paper for doing toner transfer for circuit board creation. It works better than a commercial paper product that is sold for that specific purpose. This makes creating PCB's a whole lot easier.

  5. Dissolves as promised

    Posted by Unknown on 02 11 2017

    Being a magician, I needed dissolving paper for an illusion I created. This item worked great doing exactly what it was advertised to do. I gave it a “four” only because it left the water very cloudy almost masking the fact that the paper was no longer there. Still it makes a moment that much more magical.

  6. Image Transfer with Dissolving Paper

    Posted by Unknown on 01 28 2017

    I copied images to the paper with a laser copier and used it to transfer images to stones in an acrylic transfer process. Dissolve the paper with water to remove it after the transfer process dries.

  7. Non dissolving Paper

    Posted by Richard on 01 27 2017

    Unfortunately the batch of dissolving paper we bought simply did not work well. It would only dissolve if we stirred the water and had no more than 1 or 2 sheets worth in the 1 gallon bowl of water.

  8. 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!

  9. Works like a dream!

    Posted by Unknown on 05 21 2016

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

  10. 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!
