Posted on Friday 18th October 2013

Ingredients and equipment needed:

First of all, you’ll need to wear a pair of Vinyl Gloves. This will stop your hands from getting messy or stained by the food colouring.

Mix 1 heaped tea spoon of Citric Acid, 2 heaped tea spoons of Bicarbonate of Soda and 2 heaped tea spoons of Cornflour into a Large Bowl for each Bath Bomb you are making and blend well together.

step -1   Step -2

The next step is to choose what colour you would like the Bath Bomb to fizz, so add 1ml of Food Colouring with a Pipette and mix really well. Use the Clear Trigger Water sprayer to add a ‘mist’ of water to help the mixture bind together.

Step 3   Step 5

The Messy bit….Take the mixture and mould it tightly into a ball or you can use a rubber baking tray to make more interesting shaped Bath Bombs.  Leave the shaped mixture for at least 24 hours and the Bath Bomb are ready.
