Who doesn’t love a good bath bomb? These little wonders can transform your bathtub into a luxurious spa experience in just minutes. But what do you do if you don’t have a bathtub?
Or maybe you’re traveling and don’t want to pack your bathtub along with you? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! In this blog post, we will teach you how to use bath bombs without a bathtub. So get ready to soak in some serious relaxation!
Use the bath bomb in your shower as a shower steamer
The first thing you’ll want to do is take your bath bomb and add it to the water in your shower. The best way to do this is by dropping it into a squeeze bottle of distilled water (you can pick one up at your local craft store) and squirting the water out into your running shower.
Once you’ve added the bath bomb, turn off the cold water but leave on hot or warm so that it will dissolve faster! If any residue remains, use an old toothbrush or even an old makeup brush to get rid of clumps or chunks that could otherwise clog up your drain.
Depending on how many essential oils you want to use, simply mix them with either another squeeze bottle filled with distilled water or just pour them directly onto your bath bomb/suds mixture! I recommend testing a small amount first as sometimes too much oil can be overwhelming for sensitive skin types (or just for those who don’t like their faces dripping with oil).
Use the bath bomb in the kitchen sink
You can also use your bath bomb in the kitchen sink. You’ll want to use a bowl of warm water—no need for Epsom salts or essential oils, as you’d use them for baths anyway. Pour your bath bomb into the hot water and let it dissolve completely before getting in for a soak.
If you don’t have access to any other bathtub-like spaces where you can use your fizzy treats, this solution is going to be good enough!
Use the bath bomb in a washing up bowl for a DIY pedicure
You can also use bath bombs as a DIY pedicure. It’s easy to make your own foot soak, scrub, and mask in the comfort of your own home. All you need is a bath bomb and an empty washing up bowl.
If you want to try doing all of these products at once (and save money in the process), try adding a few drops of lavender oil or tea tree oil into the warm water before adding your bath bomb! The mixture will go cloudy and fizzy, but don’t worry about it! Just put those feet in there for 5 minutes or so and rinse off when finished – voila! A DIY spa experience without leaving your house!
No need for a tub; these methods allow you to enjoy a “bath” using the bath bomb
The best part about bath bombs is the experience, but sometimes you don’t have access to a tub or your tub isn’t suitable for soaking. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy these products!
Using your kitchen sink as a makeshift tub. If it has enough space and water pressure flow (some kitchens have great water pressure), this method is especially fun because you can see how the colors swirl around in the bowl. Just be sure not to get too much water color on anything that would stain if wetted by color pigments—you could ruin your countertop!
Take your shower with your favorite bath bomb in hand. Really soak yourself while getting ready for bed or relax after work before going out with friends or loved ones later that evening! You can even try taking one into the shower with another person.
So they experience it too! Just make sure not everyone touches it at once because then there won’t be any left for anyone else’s enjoyment…so go ahead and leave yours out in an open space where others may come across it unexpectedly.
It’s so good to know that you can still enjoy all the benefits of a bath bomb even if you don’t have the luxury of tubs and Jacuzzi. If you don’t want to splurge on expensive spa treatments, try these creative ways on how to use bath bombs without bathtubs!
