Do you have sands that are sticking together? Are the bubbles moving sluggishly? Have you owned your Moving Sand Art for a while, and it needs some extra life because it isn’t performing like it used to? Do you have sands that are stuck at the top with no air holding them up? You might benefit from our soap boost! The soap boost will invigorate your sand picture and should improve the performance.

This soap boost seems to have worked fine - there are still a few clumps, but I hope they will break up as I continue to flip the piece. I don't want to put additional soap into the piece because the instructions say the water might get filmy - and I do not want that to happen.
We'd had our sand art picture for several years when we noticed that the sand didn't seem to be flowing as well as it once had. Chris advised us to try a soap boost application, which we did. Our sand art picture is now working beautifully.
I watched videos and spent a lot of time on the website and couldn’t see how much of the soap to use for my model which is not one of the larger ones. I used about half and I think it helped but I am left with these threads of sand which I think must be from sand clumping along the bottom under the weight of the other sand and sitting too long. I couldn’t break it up even using air bubbles. The thread would be wrapped around an air bubble rising and still not break.
I had a Sand picture that I purchased back in the late 80's or early 90's that had been sitting in a box for many years. When I pulled it out of the box a month ago, it was totally dried up. I purchased the Soap Boost and added the spring water and it has come back to life. I am so excited!!!! I have a wall-mounted unit and now I can enjoy the ever-changing scenes as I rotate the picture. THANK YOU so much for making this available. I am ecstatic!!!!!
I love my sand art, best Christmas present ever. It arrived in 2017, and a year later I learned it requires occasional maintenance when it began acting up. This is the second maintenance booster I have purchased. My only complaint is the need for a yearly $12 maintenance is expensive. Please either share the type of soap you use, or stop taking additional profit by reducing the cost in some fashion. I have the small outer space movie version. Again, amazing gift that gives something new every day.
