Especially For Teachers

Ideas for Teachers on using MSBMrs. Stewart’s Bluing has been used for generations to make a beautiful “Salt Crystal Garden”, a great science experiment for all ages. Did you know that MSB has many other uses in your school?

  • In the ART room, MSB is used as ink for calligraphy, in pottery glazing, for salt crystal dioramas.
  • In the SCIENCE lab, MSB is used for salt crystal growth, which can teach the scientific principals of evaporation, making carnations blue which teaches capillary action, scientific method testing and reporting.
  • In PHYSICAL EDUCATION, MSB can be used to mark the edge of ski race courses or outdoor games in the snow and can keep school pool water looking inviting.
  • In ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES, MSB is a good example of a simple, but effective, product that is also green, environmentally friendly, non-toxic and non-hazardous and it is easy to test for these standards.
  • In FAMILY AND CONSUMER SCIENCE, MSB whitens laundry and makes glass and crystal sparkle.
  • In LANGUAGE ARTS and HISTORY, instructing teachers to write about any of the above uses teaches informational comprehension and procedural writing. The history of MSB is a fascinating investigation into an old-fashioned product surviving the advances of society and technology over 100 years.
