Tips to Make Millennial Pink Bath Bombs
- These painted bath bombs are easy to make and the gold is added with just a small paint brush or your finger.
- Let the bath bombs dry for at least 24 hours to get the most fizz-action.
- There is an ingredient which is optional, Polysorbate 80. The purpose of this emulsifier is to limit the oils and butters from pooling at the top of the water, as well as to reduce mica from adhering to the walls of the tub. If you don’t have it on hand, you can skip it.
- To keep your bath fizzies at top-peak-fizzy-potential, store them in an air-tight container. If you’re giving these away, wrap each in an airtight cellophane or put them into an airtight container, too.
- You can use any color and scent, but try not to use food coloring. It can color skin and the bathtub! Use soap colorant or mica powders – they are tested for skin safety and make tub or basic cleaning easier.
- If you’re having trouble getting a molded fizzy to hold it’s shape, it could be because the bath bomb mixture is not wet enough. See this article on trouble-shooting bath bombs and shower fizzies to find out your options to remake them.
