Fairy mud

Over the years I have seen many blogs and facebook pages share fairy mud, or clean mud - basically kitchen paper, warm water and grated soap mushed together...

I felt it was time to try it out... especially since the soap has been sitting on the shelf at work for close to a year now waiting for this to happen.

Yesterday I announced the dates for the International Fairy Tea Party (which currently has its own facebook page... but the folks at Fafu and myself are talking about extending the idea and creating a website too... how fantastically magical is that?) - but the fairy talk got me wanting to test some thing out - and the fairy mud was the first... witha generous helping of red glitter...

Of course I had my son's birthday party in the afternoon and there was traces of glitter all over me... all the children giggled at the fact I had a "glitter virus". Glitter does have that effect of getting everywhere... but I just love the stuff anyway!!

Diane Kashin said I had fairy magic in her post Cultivate a Scientist on her and Louise Jupps blog Technology Rich Inquiry Based Research...
I am going to go with that... I like the idea of having fairy magic!!


Its was lovely and foamy, and it smelled so gentle and clean too - not strong and overpowering like shaving foam can. The child with slight eczema was given hand cream afterwards... as I was unsure as to just how the soap would dry out her skin - although I felt no drying out tendencies on my own skin (although the glitter did take a while to totally vanish, but glitter is not absolutely necessary)

I have left it to dry over the weekend... I want to see what happens, and to see how it can be recycled best... all in the name of science and messing about...

  1. I found that clean mud actually lasted a few weeks if kept in a sealed container
