I recently purchased a new book, Make It Fizz A Guide to Making Bathtub Treats, by Holly Port from The Lotion Bar Cafe. A recipe for potty bombs was in the book. I had to make it up. It is basically baking soda, citric acid, peroxide, vinegar, and essential oil. I placed 2 essential oils and one fragrance oil in mine. Mostly I used lime essential oil and lemon verbena fragrance oil. I added a little green sparkle mica in mine and some vanilla bean specks. The original molds are about 1.5 X 1.5 X .75. These are a little larger than I would like due to the width of the jar top. I also don't want to have someone break the bath bomb into two pieces. The second ones I placed into lemon/lime ice cube tray molds. These work better. The user can always put two into a toilet bowl if one is not enough. I am going to laminate the labels and tie them on the top. I wanted to make something for men to use. I know this doesn't sound like a Father's Day gift, but many men live alone and I think they would enjoy this. How many men people do you know that have no clue what to clean a toilet with?
My labels, sort of---the font changed when I placed it on the blog:
