Ooze Baff Review
If you recall Gelli Baff, which advertised a couple of years ago, then you will probably be mostly familiar with Ooze Baff. Ooze Baff is a packet of material that can be poured into water, turning it into a green slime that is safe to play in, and doesn’t stain.
To use Ooze Baff, you simply pour one of the packages into your bath water (or a small swimming pool) and it quickly turns the water into a green slimy ooze. Kids can get in the ooze without worry that they will be immersed in a sticky mess that is difficult to clean. When I first tested out Gelli Baff a couple of years ago, my skepticism was quickly diminished when that product turned bath water into a blue slush. Then, just as easily, it melts away into the drain after being exposed to water.
The instructions state to first fill the tub with 1.6″ of water, then sprinkle the crystals evenly across the water, and wait 10 minutes. After that, you’ll add more water up to about 3.2″ total. I was able to add much more water than that and still retained the same amount of ooziness.
Texture-wise, it may not be as dense as some slime you’ve probably seen in the past, but it’s more like sticky water. There is a softness to it that makes it almost pleasant to touch, however, and it even has a pleasant fruity scent. It does take a little time for the goo to form, and I’ve heard some consumers have opt to put both packages in the same water to make it extra thick and gooey. That makes it a $15 bath, so I’d probably spread it out over two different occasions, but everyone has a different opinion about that. The best way to ensure an even slimy mess is to sprinkle the pack slowly over the entire area.
One potential drawback is that Ooze Baff is slippery and you’ll need to make sure everyone is extra careful not to fall. Picking up little ones from the tub is also problematic because they will be so slippery. This applies to outdoors or in the bathroom, and both getting into and out of the tub.
You’ll probably find that kids need to take an actual bath after using Ooze Baff because they will be pretty slippery. I showered immediately after getting out of the tub because it was so sticky and slimy. I purposely wore white clothes to see if they would stain, and they did not.
The cost is probably the biggest “con” with Ooze Baff, because you only get a couple of uses before your packs are gone. I would probably use this for a summer get-together or party with a kiddie pool, rather than an ordinary night in the tub. It’s fun while it lasts, but it’s expensive. Be sure to watch my video below for a full demonstration of Ooze Baff.
You can get several “Baff” branded items on Amazon, which means faster and cheaper shipping in most cases. You can find the similar Slime Baff for about $10 for two packages. There is also the original Gelli Baff, which turns your water into slush.
