After a long hard day at work, there is nothing quite as soothing as a long hot bath and often times the addition of the perfect bath bomb makes it all worthwhile. These delightful additions to everyday baths have become quite popular of late. Fizzy, colorful and offering soothing scents to relax by, these bath additions have a variety of decorative ingredients as well. From flower petals, perfumes, glitter, oils and confetti to a number of other particles, they certainly help make bath time a whole lot more enjoyable.
HOW HARMFUL ARE THEY?
Though bath bombs are not harmful to our bodies they can, however, be quite harmful to our plumbing systems. Over an extended period of time, they can create unpleasant clogs that keep water from draining properly out of your bath tub. The reason is simple. They are made up of heavy oils and perfumes that yes, provide us with a mountain of relaxation, but the oils that make up the composition of these pleasant bath additions dissolve in your hot bath water, and when they go down the drain and come in contact with cooler temperatures they tend to solidify. Some of the more extravagant bath bombs have additional ingredients such as flower petals, glitter, confetti and other particles that can easily get trapped within the oils and eventually cause a blockage or clog in your plumbing system.
Though they have a few side effects, there is a simple do-it-yourself approach you can take to protect your plumbing system and continue to enjoy your relaxing regiment of hot baths and relaxing oils and scents. You may want to wrap your bombs in nylon of some sort which will capture all the excess particles that would otherwise find their way into your bath water. Wrapping the bombs in the nylon and then placing them in the water will still afford you the same relaxing and soothing effects as well as the many delightful aromas, but will help to keep the particles from going down your drain and causing a clog. This simple trick still allows you to enjoy your relaxing bath all without doing harm to your plumbing.
