Foam parties where the club use cheap soap to generate the foam can result in eye irritation.

Foam party problems
It is the day after the party, you are nauseous and your eyes hurt like hell! What happened? Were you drugged?

No, you just got your first cheap foam party experience.

Arranging a party? Read this first
Household soap or detergents should not be used to generate party foam, because they are not pH-neutral and often contain protein-dissolving enzymes. If they are used at a foam party, the foam will cause serious eye and respiratory system irritation. The exception is Johnson & Johnson brand baby soap, which is non-irritating to the eyes and mucous membranes; unfortunately it is not cost-effective for large parties. Reputable foam party companies use special non-toxic, non-staining, hypo-allergenic solutions to generate their foam.

Going to a foam party?
Use some common sense. Do not roll around on the floor like you are having a seizure. That is the recipe to attract nasty bacteria and get cheap foam in your eyes. Bring some glasses to look cool while you protect those eyes.
