Never before have my two little lab rats been such eager testers. And nothing get’s Miss five into the bath quicker than, “Do you want a red bath tonight?”
And yes, she looks positively evil in this shot… who wouldn’t in a blood red bath?
Tonight was the final test in a series I have been doing on the tub tints – staining. I popped four large bombs into the bath to see just how bad the colour would get if ‘overdosed’. Thankfully my landlord doesn’t read this blog…
I was pleasantly surprised.
Kids – Still normal… skin colouring that.
Bath – No staining! Awesome!!
Wash Cloth – Very minimal staining. White cloth in a four strength bath turned a very light shade of pink.
Over all, very pleased.
Also pleased was Mr 2′s skin. He is cursed with my super sensitive, eczema and rash prone skin, and even in a bath with four bombs, he had no obvious outbreaks! No redness, no rash, just perfect!
There was also a splash in the eyes (Miss 5), and a few mouthfuls tasted (Master 2) and both passed with flying colours. The bombs also passed the sensitivity tests given they were held in hands as they fizzed. Both kids held their bombs the entire time, allowing all the ingredients to bubble and fizz all over their hands and arms with absolutely no irritation noticed at all.
We have a winner!!
Tonight’s Testing Report:
Dropped into the water they fizzed like crazy!
Miss five showing how awesome it looks when it bubbles and fizzes in her hand. She loves holding it above the water, occasionally dunking it to reset the fizzing action off.
Master two breaking his in half after it had fizzed a bit. He is the ultimate sensitivity test and nothing moves forward unless his skin says so. The first couple of batches of bath bombs I made (used with any generic bath bomb recipe found online) ended up with massive red welts all over his hands and forearms. I’ve managed to tweak my recipe to be gentle and loving to his skin and he comes out SO smooth and nourished I could just eat him up…
Well, I can pretty much ALWAYS eat him up, but even more so when he’s that soft and edible! No need for lotions or moisturisers after a tub tint bath….
Miss five showing how to dunk it in the water to get the fizzing action going again….
This shows just how over loaded the bath was!! You can see it all over them, and especially, all over the bath. They were practically swimming in wet bath bomb mixture it was that thick. The ultimate test in staining and skin sensitivity. Both passed with flying colours… well… actually, flying NON-colours!
By the time the bath was over, everything had dissolved into a beautiful watery, moisturising and awesomely smelling (Monkey Farts for the win!!) super fun bath!
The kids had an absolute blast, they were cleaned and more importantly, their skin was left soft, smooth and nourished from the ingredients included! Win for them and win for me!
As you can see, simply pulling the plug left next to no residue, and what was left was washed away with a quick splash down of some water.
The only casualty was the was cloth, but I did put a white one in on purpose. So long as you are aware that there could be a risk of staining and don’t put your super favourite wash cloth in the bath with the kids on that day, you will be fine. Most importantly, the kids skin is still perfectly skin colour… a good thing too as school starts in 3 sleeps! That would have been an interesting first day to explain… good one mum.
