Bubble bump soccerFirst, a note on word choice. In general, we much prefer to call the equipment “bubbles” rather than “balls.” As a practical matter, it’s more clear and descriptive, and avoids the inevitable confusion between bubble ball and soccer ball when speaking with customers and crew. Also, while the off-color jokes can be fun, those double-entendres so often arise in conversations with button-upped customers, which is just awkward. So, let’s say “bubbles.”

Exception: The title of this post, because I wanted to get your attention.

Now, on to the subject of cleaning your bubbles. A reader asks: Regarding cleaning the bubbles between matches. What do you use or recommend?

When we started, we planned on cleaning bubbles between every game. However, we found that clients simply don’t want to wait for it. They are too excited to get in the bubbles and get started bumping.

These days, we always have a spray bottle with mild soapy water and a towel on hand at events, but we have never had a cleaning request. Back at the shop, you can always clean up any bubbles that gain any odor. 

So far, we’ve stayed away from bleach or any other caustic chemicals, to avoid a risk of damaging the bubbles. If you have found a safe solution that is more sterilizing than soap, or if you have a different method, please share in the comments for the benefit of others.

Thanks to for this question, and best of luck in your operations.

The fellas at report that they use Seventh Generation Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner as a quick disinfecting spritz. It’s non-toxic, phosphorus-free, ammonia-free, bleach-free, and phosphate-free, but the lemongrass scent can seem strong right after application. Another (yet-to-be-field-tested) natural alternative is Benefect Botanical Disinfectant. Thanks for the tips, guys!
