Magic Sand – Sand that is Always Dry!
How can something submerged in water stay dry? When ordinary sand gets wet, the result is a clumpy mess. However, “Magic Sand” begins as normal looking sand, until it’s coated with a substance that repels water. This special coating keeps the sand dry even after it has been dumped into a container of water. Build castles and other structures under the water, then simply pour the water off when you’re finished and the sand is still dry!

I remember when I was a little girl and the magic sand would be advertising on T.V. Good times. ☺️
So I was doing research on Dry Ice and I discovered that Dry Ice can be turned to Dry Water so I went to wath videos of people doing it but instead, Magic Sand came out. I watched them demonstrate how Magic Sand works. So I did rearch anyway but then found the reveal. I found a solution why it's clumpy on water is because the sand is actually dry water. Dry water is Dry ice when freezes.
Another name of Dry Water is powdered liquid. And note to that, dry water actually consists of 95 percent liquid water, but the silica coating prevents the water droplets from combining and turning back into a bulk liquid. The result is a white powder that looks very similar to table salt. The company dyed the powdered liquid or Dry Water so it does not look like Teaspoon of salt nor white. So really, this is no magic sand, it's called
Wow! I had no idea that the ancient Egyptians had Scotchguard!
