The overall equation for this reaction is:
2 H2O2 → 2 H2O + O2
However, the decomposition of the hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) into water (H2O) and oxygen (O2) is catalyzed by the iodide ion I from KI (potassium iodide).
H2O2 + I- → OI- + H2O
H2O2 + OI- → I- + H2O + O2
The dishwashing liquid captures the oxygen as bubbles.
Remember to wear splash safety goggles and gloves, they are just a few cents each, when doing experiments for fun. :)
