A teacher has used a science experiment involving pepper, water and soap to explain to children the importance of hand-washing.
The experiment sees pepper in water repelled from a student’s hand when touched with soapy water, to which the pupils can be heard saying “It moved!”
Posting the video to Instagram, Amanda Lorenzo said: “Learning about the importance of washing our hands… So much fun and very informative!”

Learning about the importance of washing our hands!🧼 I wish you all could’ve seen how truly shocked they were that the “virus,” (pepper) moves away from the soap! So much fun and very informative! The things you learn from #TikTok 😂 #prekactivities #coronaviruspreventiontips #dabbooratnani
Ms Lorenzo, from Miami, Florida, said she got the idea for the experiment on Tik Tok, and that her four- and five-year-old students were “shocked” to see its outcome.
Ms Lorenzo told the PA news agency: “I’m happy I was able to spread awareness with my video! I had no idea it would go ‘viral’, but I’m happy it did if I was able to help anyone in the process!
“My kiddos were so shocked. I wish I could’ve recorded their faces!”
