Let's begin with things that will melt in our high heat.  Of course we need to start with the melting point of chocolate.   Men often try to melt the heart of their lady with chocolate, so let's make the women happy first.  All of these temps are in Fahrenheit.

Chocolate melting point: 85-90 degrees.               


Now I think men's favorite treat is butter (it is mine!).  So, here you go guys. 

Butter melting point: 90-95 degrees.                          

Other melting points -

Lipstick (Wax Base): 113 degrees. 

Beeswax (Candles, Balms): 143-148 degrees.

Sunscreen Lipstick:  127 degrees.

Marshmallow: 113 degrees.

Jell-O/Gelatin:  95+ degrees.

Things that won't melt in our blazing heat -

Lead:  621 degrees.                                                    

Radium:  1292 degrees.

Polyethylene (Zip Bags):  221 degrees.
