Have you ever had a bath bomb go wrong? (cough cough…no, never, not me!). Well, on the RARE occasion that you have a bath bomb go wrong, we have the fix for you! Just wrap up the crumbled bath bomb pieces in water soluble paper and pop them in the tub! Bonus: They’re so cute no one will know you ever “goofed” up a recipe!
Below are our examples of a bath bomb gone wrong while testing a new recipe. Let’s just say it went a little “flat” (obviously).
PREP: Once you download the PDF, print out the images on water soluble paper, preferably on an inkjet printer (laser printed water soluble paper doesn’t dissolve as well in water). Then cut out the square but cutting on the dotted line.
Printing Tip: We tested the water soluble paper printed from an inkjet printer and a laser printer and found that the colored parts of the paper dissolved way faster with the inkjet printer. If you have a laser printer, we designed a heart pattern with less color just for you.
ONE: Crush your old bath bombs with a fork, hammer or rubber mallet. Choose accordingly depending on how hard your fizzies are.
TWO: Put three tablespoons worth of bath bomb chunks into the center of the back of the paper, so you’ll see the hearts when you eventually fold them up.. OR three tablespoons of completely powdered bath bomb mix (depending on how you decide to crumble the delinquents).
Example Above: Three tablespoons of the crumbled mixture.
THREE: Carefully pull the side of the paper up and around the bath bomb mixture then secure with a twisty tie or ribbon. Plop it in the bath tub and let the fizzy disperse.
