Different liquids have different densities (mass per volume) and therefore, different weights. The heaviest liquids will sink, the lighter liquids will rise to the top. So, dish soap is heavier than water which is heavier than oil which is heavier than rubbing alcohol. And we all just learned something new- awesome!
