Sploshing With Ice Cream! Preparation & Cleaning Full Guide
Preparing Ice Cream For WAM Play & Sessions
Ice cream is available in lovely big plastic tubs from the supermarket, usually in lots of different value brands and cheap varieties too.
You can add colour to regular vanilla types with a little food colouring or washable/non toxic poster paint, just let it melt a little and mix it in.
Some cheap ice creams separate when melted into a fatty layer and a watery layer. You can whisk it back together using a whisk and a tablespoon of angel delight to stabilise it.
My own preferences are going to colour this advice a little but I'd suggest allowing it to melt at least a little, and don’t plan to use much - freezing items are not pleasant in large amounts!
I enjoy a contrast between warm and cold, or a session with mostly room temperature stuff and one or two cold items, but a whole session with everything freezing is just miserable, and a real mood killer. It's a comedy and fun killer for me too because it makes me grumpy!
If you really want it all freezing then well ok, you do you... but please don't stay freezing cold for too long. I've had hypothermia and it wasn't fun!
Pro tip - avoid the lingering dairy smell by using a vegan alternative brand, or making your own non dairy or plant based ice cream.
You can do this with coconut milk, coconut cream, oat milk or other alternatives. Non dairy ice creams are much better and smoother when they have a decently high fat content, so don't skimp on the coconut cream. Alpro vegan custard can be great to add too.
Cleaning Up Dairy Based Ice Cream
You don't need to follow all these steps if you used non dairy/vegan ice cream - just have a regular shower and do regular laundry - no worries!
So anyway, lets say you used regular dairy ice cream in your session and now want to clean it up. Sploshing with Ice cream, yogurt, cream, custard or anything containing milk leaves behind that familiar unpleasant smell. I can teach you how to completely remove it.
I used to preach the magic of real lemons, and they absolutely do help, but I found that when storing clothes that smelled fine at first, when going back to them after storing, the dairy smell was there again. Gross.
However, after 15 years of sploshing I have finally been able to completely remove it at first go from anything, and lemons are optional!
I have been able to completely get the smell off my hair and body and totally rescue sploshed clothes many a time now with careful washing via these methods.
Body, Skin & Hair
You need a few washes all over with original source lemon shower gel, or your own concoction of shower gel mixed with a decent percentage of lemon juice. Use a bath puff or loofah on your body each time. Check the often forgotten areas like ear crevices, backs of arms, flanks and backs of your legs/ankles. Then do it all again several times, at least three more times.
Yes this is effectively four showers, but if you want to make sure you don’t smell even faintly of dairy then heed my words!
Safety note - do not use lemon essential oil without a carrier oil like sweet almond oil, as it will burn your skin. Maria and I still have scars from trying this! Stick to lemon juice or the all time fave, original source lemon.
For short haired people, just use lots of lemon or tea tree shampoo, maybe wash twice if you want to be sure with plenty of shampoo. Really rub it into the scalp and leave it on while you wash your body.
For longer hair
It’s possible to get the dairy smell out of longer hair too. First of all, stand under the water and let the water rinse the worst off. Use your hands to run over your head and down the length of your hair to feel where the worst is and encourage it along by gently squeezing it out.
Once the worst is gone, shampoo twice with very strongly scented shampoo like lemon or tea tree. Rub it into your scalp each time and leave it on while you wash your body (four times all over as per the skin advice above)
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 much 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 - then you can keep the loo clear and available in case any messy guests or splosh partners need it.
A messy nest is 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 (kinda kills the mood!)
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 starchy items, paint pigments, sugary items and more and I use 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 linked above. 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.
Buckets & Tools
To clean the dairy smell off buckets and tools it’s good to let them soak for a while in a bath full of cold water with 60ml biological laundry liquid or powder thoroughly mixed in. Then once they have soaked for at least 30 minutes, you’ll need a hose or tap with good water pressure to blast the clinging areas off, and/or a good stiff washing up brush.
Don’t try to do it with your hand or a flannel, you’ll be there all day! Microfibre cloths are good to get any last bits and help dry them off, but not for the initial washing. Don’t forget the outside of the buckets, bottoms of buckets and under the rims.
Use a microfibre cloth and a clear antibacterial spray. Make sure you don’t use anything with bleach unless you know the carpet is certified for safe bleach use. For laminate flooring, tile or stone, microfibre cloths are your friend. Same for any splashes that have got onto a wall or door, or door handles etc.
If any splashes have dried, soak a microfibre cloth or a few sheets of kitchen roll with your cleaning spray and leave it on top of the dried mess for about 30 minutes. When you return it will just wipe away. If anything is still stuck, soak it again and use your stiff brush.
On most ‘washing up’ brushes, there is a flat side on the bristly head that can be used to scrape without scratching. Dry the area afterwards.
If you want to clean and save the pool
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, making sure to use the lemon scented dish soap, or antibacterial dish soap, or biological laundry liquid 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.
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
If you want to throw away the pool
If you used a small pool and a bucket or less of 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 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 gunge, 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.
You may be happy throwing everything away, or indeed need to throw everything away. If you are throwing anything away, triple bag it, securing it tightly with each layer. Just trust me on that one.
If you want to save clothes, then immediately after your session, soak them for 24 hours in a bucket with a capful of biological laundry liquid or powder. Cold water is fine. Get the bucket ready while preparing your session.
It helps even more if you rinse the clothes off in the bath or shower first, then squeeze them out well (make sure the water isn’t too hot to stop colour running) and drop them into your prepared soaking bucket. Do bear in mind that sploshed/wet clothes are heavy. Consider splitting it all into two or more loads so you don’t overload your machine.
After the essential soaking, give the clothes at least two 40c washes (hotter if you can if you are confident the colours won’t run) with biological powder or laundry liquid each time, and 50ml lemon juice added to the drawer with the laundry liquid. On the last washing cycle, also add the usual amount of fabric conditioner.
The biological laundry detergent is an essential part of these instructions, as it breaks down the compounds that cause the smell. It does need time to do this fully though, hence the soaking for 24 hours first. It won’t work without the biological detergent or the soaking.
Wash towels separately at 60c, and soak them first too with biological laundry stuff if any dairy got on them.
Underwear, Lingerie, Tights & Stockings
Follow the above advice for clothes, and give them a 24 hour cold water soak with biological laundry detergent added to the water and thoroughly mixed.
Then it’s time for some special treatment. Put tights and lingerie items in their own 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, rip and be difficult to untangle.
You could also keep them separate to hand wash on their own, but be sure to follow the above advice about the soaking stage and the biological laundry detergent.
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.
With custard, cream, yoghurt or anything dairy, shoes will need the 24 hour soak in biological laundry detergent first too - then 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 the shoes, stuff them with newspaper or kitchen paper and leave them somewhere warm, but away from direct heat.
Do the 24 hour soak with wigs too. After soaking, 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 it away from direct heat to dry it, preferably hanging on something rounded to help it keep its shape, like a mannequin head.
If you want to avoid dairy odours completely, there really is one simple trick, and a few other options:
Vegan replacements. Alpro soya custard, vegan squirty cream, vegan pouring cream, coconut cream, soy, oat or coconut yoghurt, vegan trifles, cheesecakes, ‘milk’ shakes, cakes and ice cream are all available. The selection is amazing these days!
Items sploshed with these things will still need fairly careful washing, but you’ll be able to skip the 24 hours soaking step.
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.
