Draw rows for each type of salt that is being tested and the positive control iodine solution. Also draw columns to record the color of each solution at the end of the tests. Then chose one of the types of salt to test first. By using the marker, label a clean plastic cup with the type of salt that is being tested. Then add 4 tablespoons [Tbsp.] or 80 grams [g] of the salt into the labeled cup. Then add 240 mL or 1 cup of distilled water. After that stir well with a clean plastic spoon, to the point that the salt is dissolved with the water. This could take up to a minute or two. Remember not all of the salts will dissolve in the water at the same rate. Also some salts would not dissolve in the water at all. Then add 15 mL or 1 Tbsp. of white vinegar. After the vinegar, add 15 mL or 1 Tbsp. of 3% of hydrogen peroxide. After mixing that add 2.5 mL or 1/2 tsp. of the starch solution. Then stir the solution well with the spoon.
