"Sprinkle the goo former over the water and watch in amazement as your boring bath water magically starts to turn into a fun, thick goo. Stir well, get in and have fun!

When the fun is all over, add the dissolver sachet and the goo will turn back into coloured water, easily drained away.

Completely safe: Gellibaff conforms to strict testing and safety regulations and doesn't stain your towels, clothes, carpets or kids."
