Topic: Looking for certain type of sponge balls

Does anyone know where I can get white sponge balls? The kind that are highly crushable and easy to palm like the red Gosh super soft balls.

I've never seen them. I think Duane Laflin had some that were close to white at the last convention. His website is http://www.laflinmagic.com I didn't see any on the site, but you might be able to e-mail him and see if he can get hold of some for you.

If you buy the Gosh sponges and soak them with some kind of dish soap over night, you can actually wash the color off them.

I almost did it with the pink ones.

Could always give it a shot.

They will get very dirty very quickly
and look like crap.

That's my opinion after trying yellow ones.

I could be wrong.

I agree Frank. I think you would have a hard time keeping them clean. If they look gross enough, people will not want to touch them.

How about taking some colored ones and dipping them in hydrogen peroxide?

Didn't Hank Lee advertise once with so called "Snowballs"? I'd check out his website if I were you.

Dan Garrett sells Snowball sponges. I have both the large and small set: very good stuff. They haven't gotten dirty yet, but I haven't used them in too many performances. I [i]have[/i] used his white sponge teeth many times and they're starting to get a bit yellow. It's kind of gross, actually. Dan sends you cleaning instructions for them, though.
