    Today we're testing a viral video that claims dipping sea shells in vinegar over night will turn them to glass. We're testing that out along with a few other acids.

                    In AP bio, we did an ocean acidification lab- acid deteriorates shells, which we used vinegar for (for a more immediate response) What's actually happening is causing baby shellfish a whole lot of problems as the oceans' ph levels lower, and it's pretty sad, in my opinion

                      You should mix all the acids and put a shell and get the reactions

                                        I might be wrong but I believe to make a clear shell you need equal parts of water and bleach but again I might be wrong

As the oceans become more acidic due to increased CO2 from climate change. Eventually dissolve to nothing.
