You can dry them in the oven on 150 degrees for several hours to speed it up. And one drop or so of gel-based food coloring makes them pretty and won’t stain.

The oils are great for the bath, but they make the tub slippery and falls can happen. You can just as easily make these without oils to prevent this, just omit the oil. You can add a touch of food coloring to make them more colorful or use candy molds to make different shapes. Add Kaolin clay to make them harder and the clay is great for detoxification.

The water is activating your baking soda and causing it to start foaming prematurely. Also, you DO need to let them dry for a few days. As they dry out, they will become harder and more sturdy. If you want more foam, you can add some SLSA(Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate). It’s different from SLS that is very controversial.

I made these and wrapped them in tissue paper immediately after.. they soaked the tissue paper and the balls got so deformed they ripped through the paper! :(

Just wondering if anyone has an idea how long I can store these guys and will they still perform the same?
