How to Keep Your Orbeez Hydrated
When you spend time outside in the hot weather, you lose water quickly. That’s why it’s so important to stay hydrated. Orbeez are like the human body. They require a lot of water to stay in top condition. Orbeez absorb more than 100 times their original volume in water. That’s why they are so much fun! They feel squishy because they hold a lot of water.
Orbeez will dry out over time if they are left in an open container. If they sit out in the sun, they will dry out and shrink in less than a day.
We recommend storing your Orbeez in an airtight container out of the sun. A plastic food storage container with a lid that seals works well. Our Orbeez Stack ‘Ems toy includes colorful containers with lids for display and storage. Orbeez will stay round and squishy for weeks when stored properly.
If your Orbeez dry out, just add some water and give them time to rehydrate.
Also, we do recommend using clean drinking water, and bottled water for best results. Make sure you use cold or warm water, not hot or boiling.
