Rubber Chicken Bone
What You Need
- Uncooked chicken bone or wishbone
- Clean, empty glass jar with lid
- White vinegar
What To Do
Clean the bone thoroughly and let dry overnight. Place the bone in the jar and add enough vinegar to cover the bone. Secure the lid and let the jar stand undisturbed for seven days.
The bone becomes soft and rubbery. It can be twisted, and, in some cases, tied in a knot.
Why It Works
The vinegar (acetic acid) dissolves the calcium from the bone, leaving it soft and bendable.
