Beware of Crayola Colored Bubbles!

If you have young children, then blowing soapy bubbles through those little plastic, circular wands is a warm-weather staple. All kids love bubbles, and colored bubbles are even more fun, which is why Crayola’s line of colored bubble soap has been selling so well. The problem, though, is that the concoction might not be as washable as the company claims. Check out this article from the Wall Street Journal about how a number of parents are complaining that the product leaves children’s hands, as well as household surfaces, stained by the coloring agent.

OK, so apparently the stuff does come out after repeated scrubbings, but that’s not something I want to deal with around here! I’ll stay away from this product until a new, improved version comes along.
