I have had mine in a container for over 4 months now. Every so often I wash them with dish soap. You can leave them out to dry over a week span and they will shrink back to original size. Every time you shrink and grow the gel gets softer and easier to break.
1 pack of Water beads has aprox 1000 small beads. Place in water (not hot). Let sit for 4 hours and they will grow. No smell, non-toxic, bio gel little balls. Because of the size adult supervision required (chocking hazard).
