How to Use Bath Bombs
With each bath bomb tutorial that I make, I also enjoy giving out some instructions. If you want to use a bath bomb, it’s not hard at all. You just have to make sure you follow the instructions because you don’t want to ruin these before you’re able to use them.
- The water has to be warm, not too hot and not too cold. Make sure you test the water before you add the bath bomb in it.
- Put the bath bomb in the water and watch it work its magic. The Succulent Bath Bomb will dissolve in the water and you’ll be amazed as it fizzes.
Be careful not to get the Succulent Bath Bombs wet before you use them. Since these are made out of ingredients like baking soda and citric aside, they dissolve quite easily. You can make sure they don’t dissolve by keeping them in their packages before you’re ready to be used.
