Thank you! We tried this today and my 5 yr old son said he had a lot of fun (until his 2 yr old sister dumped it all into the tub :-) No staining. I used generic liquid baby soap to ensure "no tears".

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 13 cup mild clear Joy dishwashing soap
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • food coloring


  1. Mix cornstarch and liquid soap in bowl.
  2. Pour into ice cube tray, filling about 1/2 full.
  3. Put 4-8 drops of different food coloring colors into each section and mix till blended.
  4. I usually use toothpicks to mix when in the ice cube tray.

  6. This washes your child, and will wash off the walls too!
