Sploshers Full Guide To Marshmallow Fluff - Preparation, WAM & Cleaning Up
Preparing Marshmallow Fluff
Marshmallow fluff is available in the UK in small jars and pots (213g) from some supermarkets, or online in larger pots (454g) and bulk amounts of the large pots sold in boxes of 6, 12, etc. There are also some flavoured and coloured versions available, and sometimes supermarkets do their own brand versions. I believe the brand jet-puft also make a version
It's possible to make your own too, with corn syrup, water, sugar, vanilla extract, egg whites and cream of tartar https://www.wikihow.com/Make-Marshmallow-Fluff this recipe has all the steps and a video guide, but do take extreme care to let it fully cool down to room temperature if you do choose to make your own.
Let your shop bought marshmallow fluff get to room temperature before sploshing or it can become unmanageable when too cold. If you get it delivered from a supermarket it will arrive in a chilled van and be very cold, needing to sit for at least two hours to become useable. Likewise, don't let it get too warm either or it can lose it's fluffiness and deflate.
When sploshing with marshmallow fluff, it's best to make it either the only thing you use in your messy session, or the very first thing you use. Marshmallow fluff will not stick to you if you are already messy with anything wet or dripping, like custard, other syrups, cream or gunge.
Be careful if you are allergic to egg, as this contains egg white.
Cleaning Up Marshmallow Fluff
A lot of wammers seem to worry about using very sticky items, but it's actually pretty easy to clean up. Its main component is sugar, in the form of corn syrup, and as with all syrups, like golden syrup, treacle, strawberry syrup, honey, molasses and pancake syrup it is water soluble, meaning it simply dissolves away.
The warmer the water and the more of it, the more easily it dissolves.
Marshmallow fluff is very thick though, so you may need to help it along with a body brush or mesh loofah/bath puff for your skin, and several hair washes but don't panic if it takes a while. Keep that water going and it will all disappear.
Body, Hair & Skin
Stand under a stream of warm water from the shower for as long as it takes. Once the stickiness is gone, just use your regular shower gel, preferably with the help of something to scrub, like a loofah, plastic loofah or bath puff, or a soft bristled body brush.
I also recommend having a mirror within your line of sight in the bathroom so you can visually check for any missed areas. Common areas I used to miss were backs of arms, flanks, backs of legs and ankles. Always check every single crevice of your ears too!
For short haired people
Warm water alone will dissolve the stickiness, so just stand under the stream of water for a while. Shampoo twice or more with a strongly scented shampoo like lemon or tea tree
For longer hair
Don’t worry, it’s easy. Stand under the stream of warm water and the fluff dissolves away. It may take a little longer than with other sticky items, but it will dissolve. Shampoo twice with strongly scented shampoo, massaging it out each time for as long as you can from root to tip.
Shampoo gently and be careful not to rub or scrub it into your hair, just keep smoothing down and gently work it in with fingertips as the water runs through your hair. Condition as normal, but only on the very ends of your hair.

Cleaning Items & Objects
Baths & Showers
I recommend avoiding use of a bath or shower for sploshing where possible due to limited space and the need to clean the bath before cleaning yourself. It's just more comfortable and pleasant to keep the bath or shower more available and set up a pool or inflatable massage mat or even a makeshift messy nest elsewhere (layers of good plastic propped up around the edges with blankets or towels) with more space to surround yourself with your messy session items.
If you decide to make a messy nest as described above, make sure to use heavy grade 125mu + polythene or the plastic will bunch up, float around and stick to you a lot with something as incredibly sticky as marshmallow fluff
If you really have to use the bath and any mess gets dried on, use a long lasting bathroom mousse or leave a wet cloth on top of the mark to help soak it off.
I like this bathroom mousse which is really good on paint pigments, and a scrub daddy for any stubborn marks. A stiff bristled brush can also work well to help it along.
Avoid the bath situation with another fave of mine, the inflatable massage mat (usually the size of a double bed and easier to clean than a high sided pool)
If you block the drain, a 15 minute drain unblocker will likely resolve the problem. The one I always keep available just in case is pictured below. Just pour it through any standing water in the direction of the plug hole and leave it as long as possible... they claim 5 minutes but it can take up to 30.
If you want to clean and save the pool
My general pool cleaning advice applies, but maybe with a little more warm water and a bit more scrubbing, due to the thickness of the marshmallow fluff, especially if the fluff is all you used and it hasn't become watered down with anything else.
Scoop leftovers up into buckets, watering it down and mixing it around to thin it if need be. Then tip it down the drain or flush it down the loo. Then tip a bucket of warm soapy water into your pool, and give it a good scrub around with a brush.
Now scoop all that out and tip it away or flush the water. Keep the pool inflated the whole time, and clean the sides of the pool with a few microfibre cloths, a soft brush and a cleaning spray. Then with it still inflated, stand it up against a wall and use the cleaning spray and cloths all over it.
Dry the pool thoroughly with towels and kitchen roll and then allow to thoroughly air dry, still inflated, before trying to pack it away. If any moisture remains when you deflate and fold it to store it, it will go mouldy.
Another recommendation for you, I also love this inflatable bath (holds about 300 litres)
Step by step pool cleaning guide
I recently wrote an even more in depth guide to pool cleaning with step by step instructions from prep to finish, and my thoughts on wet/dry vacuums and lining the pool with plastic. To read that, go here
Or, If you want to throw away the pool
If you used a small pool and a bucket or less of porridge/other mess in total, you may be able to simply pop it and put it into a bin bag. If you do this, secure the first bin bag and then add another to be sure of no leaking. I often use three bin bags with this method, and with any other messy things that have to be thrown away.
If you used a large inflatable pool and a large amount of mess, you'll need to scoop out and flush everything before trying to bag it, or it will be too heavy. 10 litres is one bucket, and is the equivalent of 10kg. Even if you are strong enough to lift it easily, you risk the bin bag tearing if the contents are too heavy.
Flushing The WAM Leftovers
If you are connected to a normal waste water system You can flush pretty much everything except oil. If you have a septic tank, please see the separate advice. I have never happened upon a loo that can’t handle mess being flushed down it.
If any appears to be blocking the loo, use a sink or bath tap to fill a bucket with water and pour the water from a height on top of the blockage… wiggle around a loo brush too, or even your hand if it comes to it. Flush after each bucket, and make sure you give time for the loo tank to refill before expecting it to flush again.
Repeat this as necessary and then check after an hour or two that nothing remains in the bottom of the loo. If you are disposing of very thick substances, it may be better to only half fill your buckets, and mix water into each one so that it becomes runnier and flushes easier.
If you have a septic tank, you won’t be able to flush leftovers down the loo. Instead you will need a series of bags, and absorbent puppy pads, or wood pellet cat litter, as much as it takes to absorb all your leftovers. Triple bag it all with very strong bin bags, securing each layer, and take it all to your local tip, to the general waste area.
Ideally take them into the shower with you to rinse them off a little and squeeze them out. Be careful with water temperature if any items are dark in colour in case the colour runs.
Then wrap them up in a large clean towel or two, or drop them into a clean bucket so they don’t drip on the way to your washing machine.
Be mindful of the weight, wet or sploshed clothes are often heavy, so don't overload your machine.
Give them two washing cycles with no laundry liquid, and then another washing cycle or two with the usual amount of laundry liquid and fabric conditioner.
Underwear, Lingerie, Tights & Stockings
Put tights and lingerie items in zip up mesh laundry bags, separate from each other. It's especially important to keep them separate from bras or anything with clasps or fastenings, as they will get snagged and rip and be difficult to untangle.
You could also keep them separate to hand wash on their own. Bras, teddies, babydoll nighties, basques etc all need their own zip up mesh laundry bags, or like with tights and stockings, keep them separate for thorough hand washing individually.
You can wash most shoes in the sink with warm soapy water as though you were washing dishes. Some shoes like trainers and flat ballet pumps can instead be put into a zip up mesh laundry bag and washed in the washing machine.
To dry shoes, stuff them with newspaper or kitchen paper and leave them somewhere warm, but away from direct heat.
For wigs, hand washing is best. Be very gentle and use shampoo twice, rinsing each time. Then liberally soak it with hair conditioner and leave it for at least 30 minutes. Brush it out gently with a wet brush - a wet brush is a great invention and is the name of the brand. It's very gentle and good for head hair too.
Rinse thoroughly and wrap it in a towel, then apply pressure to dry it a little, do not rub it. Then keep away from direct heat to dry it, preferably hanging on something rounded to help it keep its shape, like a mannequin head.
Who Am I?
And why do I know stuff?
Well, I'm a UK based WAM producer and sometimes model with 15 years experience. For over 10 of those years I hosted a bonkers amount of wam sessions (3 or 4 a week) and I consider myself very lucky to have been able to do so... however I had to get very good at cleaning up quickly in the fairly small window of privacy I would get, and I had to leave no trace due to living in rented accommodation.
I also had to get inventive with substances and alternatives. I think all my trial and error experiments with WAM now mean there is literally nothing I haven't personally tried and in turn, there's nothing I haven't cleaned up either.
I love when other people go for it and enjoy getting messy, especially if it's because of something I did or said to encourage them. So if you're looking for a sign, this is it.. and with all my articles, I hope to give you the confidence to make your sessions bigger and messier and with a bonus of inner peace, knowing you can easily clean it all up too.
