I wonder how does slu** powder interact with liquids other than water?

For instance
- juice
- alcohol-free beer
- tea

I wanted to vanish a whole clear glass of liquid, preferably looking like a beer or wine, so it might be a red juice, but from my small experience I need to add more powder for liquids other than pure water. I don't know about other methods for liquid vanish.

So far I thought that my best option is orange juice, because you cannot see through it like through water or apple juice. So when the liquid is transformed, there is not so much of a difference.

Just stick with pure water and just color the water to whatever hue you prefer.
Cheapest way to go would to buy cheap Watercolors in tubes and try some combinations.
This will allow you to make the liquid without the sugar and stuff associated with genuine juices and sodas etc.

I've recently discovered that milk mixed with water serves me well, there seems to be no difference at all after the transformation.

Thx for this advice I will try watercolours later, I always wanted to vanish a bad alcohol liquid, I could not find a good reason to vanish a casual milk.

Ask the wife, girlfriend, or grandma, they will direct you to what is called Food Color, purchased at the local grocery store.

This is copied & pasted from Wikipedia.

Slush powders' ability to absorb water depends on the ionic concentration of the aqueous solution. In deionized and distilled water, an SAP may absorb 300 times its weight (from 30 to 60 times its own volume) and can become up to 99.9% liquid, but when put into a 0.9% saline solution, the absorbency drops to approximately 50 times its weight.[citation needed] The presence of valence cations in the solution impedes the polymer's ability to bond with the water molecule.

I use it with coffee all the time with no problems.
