    Nice video but not scientifically accurate, the absorption of the water is not a chemical reaction, it is due the physical interactions between the water molecules and polar groups in the polymer. The addition of salt greatly reduces the interactions between the water molecules and the polymer so that a lot of the water is released.

    After you added salt where did the polymer go? Or do you need to buy more

    Just thought I would mention that this is not a reaction just osmosis, which is physical action and not chemical
