Smelly Jelly Jars

Recommended Posts

Thank you. Is the crystal stuff the same stuff you can use for weddings that you just add water to and then it 'puffs' up and you can put a candle on the top? Can you use liquid candle dye? It says bath and body liquid dye....this a great idea for airfreshners in bathrooms and under kitchen sinks.

To my understanding you can not use candle dye as it is oil based. Smelly Jelly's are a water based item and the B&B color is also. I haven't tried but I think I saw somewhere that if you use candle dye it just sits in gobs. I could be wrong but that is just what I remember reading.

Those jars are really cheap at the supermarket...and Wal-Mart has them too.

Use food coloring, not candle dyes.

Use a pinch of salt to each batch as a preservative.

Use distilled water..also cheapest at Wal-Mart.

www.crystals.us I think invented the stuff, and you can get ideas and good info about the gardeners water crystals vs. the smelly jelly crystals...worth the read.

Good luck to you.
