Bath bombs can be a great gift, but if you are n't sure how to use it, then it can be somewhat confusing. Honestly, some people out there have no idea what to do with it, lol! They have a lot of questions that are quite common for first time bath bomb users. 

  • Do you just throw it in the tub?
  • Do you use the whole thing?
  • Will it stain the tub?
  • Will it stain you?

The answers, as it turned out, were: Yes, Sure!, nope, and nope.

Do you just throw it in the tub?: 

To use a bath bomb, all you have to do is fill up your tub, toss it in there, and watch it go! You can expect the bath bomb to create a ton of fizz, all while adding colors, fragrance, salts and coconut oil into your bath. It's your one stop shop for a luxurious bathing experience! 

Do you use the whole thing?: 

Bubbly Belle bath bombs can be larger than a lot of other competitors. We typically offer a 6 ounce bath bomb, while many companies settle for 2.5 ounces, which in our opinion is just too small to get a great bath out of. So while your certainly welcome to cut your bath bomb in half (we did with our first one so we could try it out and get an idea of what to expect), we recommend just tossing the whole thing in there to get the full experience. 

Will it stain the tub?: 

We choose our colors carefully, so that we can provide a bath bomb that will wonderfully color your water, not your tub! Since we opened our doors to the bath bomb world, out of the thousands of customers we've been blessed with we've had rarely anyone contact us with concerns about one of our bath bombs staining their tub. In that isolated case they had had a special enamel applied to their tub. However, this was easily remedied by simply applying a surfactant to the tub and gently scrubbing. 

Will it stain me?: 

No it will not! Though when I first tried a bath bomb, this was a concern of mine. I didn't want to end up going in to work the next day looking like a big blueberry! I'm happy to report that this has never once happened to us or any of our customers. 

Will it clog my drain?: 

This is a good question that we get occasionally, and an important one. A bath bomb will dissolve completely in the water, so it will not clog your drain. However, some of bath bombs come with flower buds or other toppings. When using those we recommend you use a simple drain catcher, as those could potentially clog a drain until they dissolve. This prevents you from having to collect every piece of oatmeal or ever Lavender bud when your bath is over. 

So in summary, feel free to fill up the tub, throw in a Bubbly Belle Bath Bomb, and enjoy!
