A mixture is a combination of two or more different materials or matter. If a fabric is made of 67% cotton and 23% polyester, the fabric is a mixture. Look at the ingredients on the back of any cereal container or juice box, what do you see? If there are many different ingredients the product is therefore a mixture! There is one other type of mixture: Heterogeneous Mixtures.
One of the other types of mixtures is Heterogenous. Heterogenous mixtures are mixtures where there different ingredients can be easily detected. Cement and sand is a perfect example of Heterogeneous mixture. Looking at one of them you can clearly see different ingredients in the mixture.
The other type of mixture is Homogenous. Homogenous mixtures are made with two or more pure substances. Homogenous Mixtures can be very confusing because a Pure Substance is not a mixture. Homogenous Mixtures are made out of Pure Substances because as said before, a mixture can be made of two or more types of matter or materials allowing this type of mixture to be a mixture.
