Watch a Camera Get Dissolved by Nail Polish Remover Fumes


Here’s a timelapse video showing how an old plastic camera melts away when you expose it to acetone fumes. The 3-minutes in the video spans 25 hours of real time.

Acetone is the organic compound that’s the primary ingredient in nail polish removers and paint thinners. It’s a good solvent for many types of plastic, and as the video shows, you only need to expose plastics to the fumes rather than the liquid for dissolving to happen.
