I suddenly have memories the time we added dish soap to the sliding surface. It made us a little more slippery but basically made everything disgusting. I’m surprised we didn’t kill the grass.

No need to apologize! That is real world kid science at its finest!

Also: good to know.

Also, don’t ever add sodium hydroxide. You do get that slippery, soapy feel, but also horrible chemical burns.

Are you speaking from experience?
Who would ever consider?
