Minnesota – It’s so cold that… you can freeze a t-shirt into a ball and shatter it against a wall (or at least you can try). This one didn’t work! Watch and subscribe all of the Minnesota Cold Weather Experiments: www.youtube.com/nziegler .


  • T-shirt
  • Pot of boiling water
  • Tongs or other utensil
  • Gloves


  1. Bring the pot of boiling water outside and dip the t-shirt in the water until it is soaked.
  2. Remove the shirt and wring it out. Roll it into a ball.
  3. Leave it to freeze until it is solid.
  4. Throw it against a wall and watch it shatter.

Helpful Hints:

  • The t-shirt was very hot when I was wringing out, so be sure to be careful.
  • I couldn’t get the t-shirt to shatter, but it still made a good ball. If you managed to get it to shatter, let me know in the comments!
