Why is it important to soak gel balls?

Gel balls, also known as water beads or gel beads, are small polymer balls that can absorb and hold a significant amount of water. Before using gel balls in any activity or game, it is crucial to properly soak them. Soaking gel balls ensures that they reach their full size and potential, providing the best experience and performance.

What is the correct way to soak gel balls?

To properly soak gel balls, follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Clean the gel balls

Before soaking, make sure to clean the gel balls by rinsing them with water. This helps remove any dirt or debris that may be present on the surface.

Step 2: Prepare a container

Take a clean container and fill it with room temperature water. Avoid using hot or cold water, as extreme temperatures can affect the gel balls' integrity.

Step 3: Add the gel balls

Gently pour the gel balls into the container. Ensure that there is enough water to fully submerge the gel balls. As a general rule, use approximately 1 liter of water for every 10 grams of gel balls.

Step 4: Let them soak

Allow the gel balls to soak in the water for at least 4-6 hours. During this time, the gel balls will absorb the water and expand in size.

Step 5: Drain and rinse

After the soaking period, carefully drain the water from the container. Rinse the gel balls with clean water to remove any excess gel residue.

Step 6: Ready to use

Your gel balls are now properly soaked and ready to be used. Whether it's for a water gun fight, decorative purposes, or any other activity, the gel balls will provide optimal performance and enjoyment.


Properly soaking gel balls is essential to ensure their optimal performance. By following the steps mentioned above, you can enjoy the full potential of gel balls in various activities. Remember to always follow the instructions provided with the specific gel balls you are using, as different brands or types may have slight variations in soaking requirements.
