Bath bombs are fun things that make a mess out of your bathtub. Since the first time they were created in 1989, they have grown to massive popularity. The people most responsible for this are usually girls and young female adults that enjoy the bubbly, vibrant, and aromatic scent they leave behind. Bath bombs are very sanitizing, after all, they are made out of soap.
But since that’s all you know about bath bombs, we have done our research so stick around to find out everything you need to know about them.
1. Do bath bombs have an expiration day?
Unfortunately, yes they do. The key to using a bath bomb is to use it as soon as you purchase it. This is because they oxidate the more they are left on the open, and people have gone to extreme measures to even wrap them and place them in Tupperware to keep them fresh. The fresher they are, means the more effective they are. Keeping a bath bomb for six months is just wasting it. As we said, the fresher they are, the faster they’ll fizz and the better they smell.
2. How long does it take for the bath bomb to fizz?
The preferred waiting time is five minutes before going in the bathtub. That’s because it usually takes five minutes for the bath bomb to fizz out. As soon as you notice the fizzing is gone, hop on in your bathtub and enjoy the goodness.
3. How to clean my bathtub afterward?
Yeah, bath bombs are “the bomb” but what about the mess afterward? Well luckily for you, bath bombs don’t leave that big of a mess behind. Sure they might leave a stain or two, but you can easily clean that off with a simple shampoo bar, or shower gel. It’s that easy and required no serious cleaning products.
4. Do Bath Bombs have a negative effect on my hair?
Absolutely not. Bath bombs have no negative effect on your hair whatsoever, and they are made out essential oils and some citric acid. These ingredients will have a different effect on your hair, in a sense, it will soften it. And just remember, bath bombs are made out of soap, so you are going to get cleaned by them anyway.
5. Are they recommended for people with sensitive skin?
Bath bombs are originally made out of ingredients that will have no negative effects on your skin. But in the case of having very sensitive skin, we would recommend you to avoid bath bombs with a load of layers of the bubbly mix.
6. What are luster bath bombs?
Glitter has been one of the main substances of bath bombs, but recently that has changed due to the nature of it. Glitter is based on plastic, and microplastics have severe negative impacts on our oceans. As you might assume, glitter is not biodegradable, and because of the nature of its use (in the bathtub) they wash up into the ocean, and they impact the ocean ecosystem negatively. You cannot recycle glitter, so bath bomb companies turned their attention to luster, which is a vegetable-based substance.
7. Can I customize my bath bomb?
Unfortunately no. We would all love a bath bomb made out things we like most, but bath bomb production companies have stated that the problem is far greater than one would anticipate.
