5. Slowly add the liquid to the dry mixture
Slowly add the liquid to the dry mixture. really slow. Like a teaspoon at a time. You don't want your DIY bath bomb to explode prematurely. Stir as you go. If you see the mixture fizzing or foaming, you may be adding the liquid too quickly, slow down adding the wet mixture. After mixing the wet and dry ingredients, take a small amount in your hands and squeeze together. It should stick together in 1-2 pieces. If it's still too powdery to stick together, just slowly add a little water and squeeze it again. You should end up with a mixture that barely clumps, like damp sand.

★ Use double-sided mold to form
Wrap each half of the mold on both sides tightly with the mixture until it overflows slightly. Press the mold blocks together and gently remove one side of the mold. Place the tub bomb on the tray and let it dry before removing the other side (about an hour). The key here is to be gentle during the demolding process!
★ Shape with silicone ice cube trays
Pack the bomb mix tightly into the silicone ice cube tray slots, making the top smooth and flat. Let stand for about 10 minutes, then carefully flip the tray over and unmold the bath bomb onto the baking sheet, tapping lightly on top of each shape. As mentioned above, the key is to be gentle during the demolding process!
