    the directions are now given right at the water-sorb site! This is where I buy my crystals in bulk for my container plants!

    this is so funny...I just ran into a fellow crafter here in town and she was buying Soil moist crystals at Lowe's....I asked what she was doing with them and she said...making cool ties...cuz she had just bought two of them for her DH and they cost nearly $8.00 each! AND the blue one started bleeding as soon as they put in the water...

    so I asked her if she had a pattern...guess what..she went to this website and is making these..hehehe...I thought that was just too funny....so tomorrow, my buddy Suzy and I will be making cool ties!

    You can buy a large bag of it at Home Depot of Lowe's in the gardening section. No need to buy online if you can get it local.

    the soil moist at Lowe's is ok, but the watersorb really does stay cold/wet longer! Just because you can get it local does not mean it is the BEST you can get! Sometimes having the right TOOL makes all the difference in the project!

    I've been making these fast and furiously to give away at my office - we have so many clients who work out in the heat - 109 here yesterday (I know a lot of you have it hotter, but that was a record breaker for us!).

    Thanks for the info about the Watersorb - I'll look at it when I finish my jug of Soil Moist.
