    Those pesky bath bombs

    Thanks. A bit wiser 😊 Any hint to how much PS80, preferably in %? By the way.. What mold types do you all use. I've been using the 3D printed molds from The maker Shoppe. But maybe the stainless steel or clear pvc are better (so the bombs can dry a bit in the molds) 🤔

    Tung oil or China wood oil

    But he oil is from pressing seeds from the nut of the Tung tree (Vernicia fordii) so it's all natural. Further..pure Tung oil is considered safe to use on wooden surfaces that comes in contact with food and/or as a varnish on wooden children's toys. Maybe it's not used in cosmetics because it...

    Do you use coarse or fine sea salt? Just because I started wondering, I weight 1 tablespoon of each type,and there is a significant difference you see.

    What the heck am I doing wrong?

    Thank's for uplifting comments.:) It's on my list to try "your recipe",but I wanted to get a bit experience with LS by making an easy recipe or two first. As mentioned in an other reply, the residue and clarity problems after diluting can relate to the purity of the KOH. I'll try to experiment...
