How To Make Slip And Slide More SlipperyDavid Hansen
Every summer, many adults like to build or just buy one slip n slide in their backyard to enjoy mega summer fun of slipping and sliding in water. A question has been talked many times, that is how to make slip n slide more slippery so that would make riders glide more smooth and even fast.
Below are benches of stuff that you can use to make your slip and slide slippery.
- dish soap(dishwashing soap)
- baby soap
- body soap
- castile soap
- bubble bath
- baby oil
- vegetable oil
- olive oil
- body wash
- jelly lubricant
- Vaseline Petroleum jelly
- laundry detergent
The list may not cover all, but they will do the work. Still, there are some things to consider about when you choose one of them.
First is budget, playing a slip n slide can cost you some money because the lubrication stuff you use would run out quickly. So you need prepare enough for all participants.
Second, due to the nature of some materials, for example, oil might make some people feel sick or greasy, and hard to wash off. Soap and detergent would burn people’s eyes and gross when accidentally got into mouth.
Third, if you do slip and slide outdoors near rivers or on beach, you should consider about using environment friendly lubricants.
According to loads of discussions online I found, most people prefer dish soap, but you can choose whatever works for you.
