CommentsThis recipe is very easy to make, even your children will have a great time! This is one of the few recipes we offer that does not use a scale. We think it is easiest to mix these ingredients by kneading the mixture inside a zipper style bag. Rub and squish any lumps in the bag to make a free-flowing powder.
To get a fizzing reaction the citric acid must be combined with baking soda.
Fragrance oils vary in their strengths so we have a maximum amount to add. Please take into consideration that Almond scents are far more potent that Papaya scents, and so on.
The dry mixture will be white and the blue color will appear once the dry mixture is added to the bathwater. You may use Lemon Yellow Color, Ocean Blue Color, or Purple Raspberry Color in place of the Grape Color .
We recommend this mixture be packaged in bags only since the addition of water will start the fizzing reaction. This fizzing action will cause a rigid container to expand, then explode. Please be safe.
