Oil and water do not mix with each other how will you demonstrate this in a laboratory

Oil and water do not mix because oil is hydrophobic or insoluble and water is hydrophilic.
For a demonstration in the laboratory, 
  • Take a beaker containing water.
  • Add oil to this beaker of water.
  • Observation: the oil drops added to  water, is seen as a bubble or small globules but not being mixed with water.
  • Hence, water and oil cannot dissolve with each other.
