Why Did the Milk Swirl Around?
I did a science experiment in my school.  I am in kindergarten.  
I had to put 1/2 cup of milk in a bowl and add a drop of food coloring.
Then I put a drop of dishwashing liquid on the side of the bowl and 
let it drip down to the milk.  The dishwashing liquid made the milk 
and the food coloring swirl around.  It was very pretty.  What is in
the dishwashing liquid that made it do this?   I hope you can tell
me.  Thanks
