To Use Shower Jellies:

• These shower jellies will melt and dissolve under hot water, so you use one per every time you shower.

Notes:

• If you are worried about summer heat you may want to store the shower jellies in a container marked Shower Jellies, DO NOT EAT!! in the refrigerator so they do not melt being left out in the summer. But above all, you do NOT want anyone consuming these.
• These should last 1-2 weeks if stored in the refrigerator.

• These are very customizable. You can use any shower gel, any soap colorant to give them any scent or color.

• I hesitate to recommend using food coloring instead of the soap colorant, even if only a drop or two. I worry it will turn your skin a funky color. You may decide otherwise.
