MythBusters Busts A Can of Shaving Cream

mythbusters.jpgHere's a shaving-related myth recently addressed by the crazy MythBusters team:

If you freeze a can of shaving cream, cut it open, and then put the foam in a car, it will heat and expand to fill the car.

Hmm... Honestly, I've never heard that one. So is there any truth to the myth?

This myth was first tested with one can of shaving cream; there was little effect. Even with 50 cans of opened shaving cream in the car, the foam did not significantly expand. Lastly, the MythBusters tried putting a large quantity of polyurethane foam in the car, and it expanded to completely fill the car.

So for a great shave, lather up with a large quantity of polyurethane foam. (Kids, please don't try this at home.)
