Product Review - Squishy Baff!

Last week, I saw a TV ad for a very interesting product called Squishy Baff! It is a powder that turns plain boring bath water into a colored extravengaza of jelly coolness! The four available colors are red, pink, blue, and green!

After seeing some review videos on YouTube, I decided to give this stuff a try. I decided to use two packets, which is the contents of one box. Honestly, for a grown-up sized tub, I think I needed four packets (two boxes) to turn all of the water into jelly. But, even though it wasn't enough, the bath felt really good! I felt all of the jel clumps move around my arms and legs as I moved them through the 'soup'. Before I knew it, I spent 1 1/2 hours taking a very invinigerating bath.

When it was time to get out, I poured in the dissolver, which is table salt. The salt in the box is not nearly enough, so be sure you have one of those boxes of salt handy. After a few minutes, the jel dissolved enough so I could drain and flush it away. Then I took a shower to rinse off and use my soap.

Here are the warnings! Be sure to put the powder in AFTER you full the tub with water. If you don't, the coloring will stain the tub! Don't try to stand in this, because it is very slippery! Make sure you close the shower curtain after you climb in because if you splash any, it gets everywhere and it's hard to clean off the floor.

I whole-heartedly endorse Squishy Baff! It is pricey ($10 a box at Walmart), but what a treat!

You and I, and many others, already know quite a bit about superabsorbent polymers. ;) And yes, salt basically "dissolves" it. More accurately, it seriously impedes its ability to absorb. From Wikipedia: "A SAP's ability to absorb water is a factor of the ionic concentration of the aqueous solution. In deionized and distilled water, a SAP may absorb 500 times its weight (from 30–60 times its own volume), but when put into a 0.9% saline solution, the absorbency drops to maybe 50 times its weight."

Yeah... Not a good idea to dunk your head under it. Might get that jel stuck in your ears.

I'd imagine sinking in regular water is just as deadly :P

I hate youtube videos lol.. started watching wuggles and all sorts of other infomercials that chained off that video.  Still, pretty neat idea.  Bet you could have more fun pouring into the front of something else though *giggles*

This sounds like a lot of fun, but I'd be so scared it would stain my tub. D:

Just pour it in *after* you fill it with water. If you see any powder on the side, wash it off quickly.

It seemed kind of silly and expensive before.  Now it seems like fun.  I think it would take two boxes to fill my big step-in tub though.  The other bathroom doesn't have a tub and the one that does is the volume of a small kiddie pool.  

I think it would be really fun to play in a pool full of this stuff.  If you could get enough distilled water the particles should swell really big the way it looks like in the ad.  

I expect there would be problems where there's a water softener like where I used to live.  The water has quite a bit of salt in it without the dissolver packet or extra salt.  That's probably why so many complain that it doesn't do much.

Good advice, but if ya do mistakingly stain dhe tub, like I have, good quality toilet bowl cleaner is your friend...  use with caution though, wear protection, a little dab will do ya...  or at least it did for me.

It is amazing...  But for me epson salts / bath salts did dhe trick.

Rinse and wash off good too or it will git in white towels and cloth.

Also, there's probably people who would "really" like this stuff. lol

Just what the place came with. I love it cause I love pink. lol but a lot of people have odd colored bathtubs here in the south. Name a color and I've probably seen a tub with it.
