It is my first time making bath bombs. Why is it too soft?
If your bath bomb is soft, the mixture may be too wet. To balance the texture, if you add too much witch hazel or oil during the mixing process, add more dry ingredients. If you live in a humid, wet climate, the moisture in the air can keep the bath bombs soft.
Add cream of tartar to your bath bomb recipe to make them harder. You can also cut back on the liquid or add kaolin clay. Bath bombs should be stored in airtight containers to keep moisture out.
My bath bomb did not fizz. Why?
If your bath bomb isn't fizzing as much as you'd like, increase the amount of citric acid in your recipe. Begin with a solution of 2 parts baking soda to 1.5 parts citric acid.
Furthermore, if you use cornstarch in your recipe, you can reduce the amount or eliminate it entirely. Fizzing can also be reduced if a lot of oil is used.
The fizzing reaction of your bath bomb can be reduced if it comes into contact with moisture from the air or a damp environment. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap to keep moisture out.
My bath bombs are staining my tub. How can I fix this?
Use Water Soluble Liquid Colorant to color your bath bombs.
Polysorbate 80 can mitigate staining if you use micas or lakes, but water soluble colors are an even safer option for preventing ring around the tub.
My bath bombs are lumpy and have bumps on it. How can I fix this?
A lumpy texture on your bath bomb is frequently caused by clumping in the dry components or failing to thoroughly incorporate the fragrance oil. Baking soda, in particular, clumps together.
Break up huge clumps with your hands before applying oil, color, scent, or other additions. Pour the dry ingredients through a fine mesh sifter to remove and break up smaller clumps. This extra process results in a smooth texture.
Bath bomb warts can also arise when the fizzy has an excessive amount of moisture. The problem is usually fragrance or essential oil, so mix thoroughly to ensure the wet is properly integrated into the dry.
