Drain after 6 hours. Shelf Life: Water beads can be stored almost indefinitely if they are kept in an airtight environment with low humidity. We have used some that were stored for over 2 years and they performed just as well as new ones.
What will dissolve Orbeez?
Put compounds in your drainpipes to begin the process of dissolving the beads, or to diminish their water-absorbing properties. These compounds include salt, bleach, or bicarbonate of soda. Using a combination of vinegar and bicarbonate of soda will create a chemical reaction that will dissolve the Orbeez.
