Let’s relax at home with my DIY Bath Bombs! Make them easily in your used k-cups!
I have made these before and just rolled them into a ball but they end up being too large or fall apart before I can use them. A while back I realized that I was going through at least 10 K-Cups a week. So I started thinking of ways to recycle them. Using them to mold and hold my DIY Bath Bombs is just smart. They Bath Bombs come out a perfect size and I feel like I got double use out of the K-Cups.
Most Bath Bomb recipes call for Citric Acid. I can never find that in stores so I found a recipe that makes these without it and have modified it to my liking!
- 4 -6 K-Cup pods, emptied and rinsed out.
- 1 cup baking soda
- ¼ cup cream of tartar
- ½ cup cornstarch
- ½ cup salt (I like Epson salt)
- 2 teaspoons essential oil (I used Lavender)
- 1 tablespoon oil (any type of moisturizing vegetable oil, such as sweet almond oil, coconut oil, or olive oil)
- 1 or 2 drops of food coloring
- Spray bottle with water
- Peel the tops of the K-Cups® and pull out the netting inside. Rinse the K-Cup® well and set aside. When all are done, add sprinkles to the bottom of the K-Cup®. Set aside.
- In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients together: baking soda, cream of tarter, cornstarch and salt.
- In another bowl mix the essential oil, oil of your choice and food coloring together. Pour the wet ingredients in with the dry and mix well. Use the water bottle to spray moisture slowly until you get the consistency of dried sand that you can mold.
- With a spoon, fill the K-Cups® to the top and pack down. Set aside and let dry overnight.
- When you are ready to remove, turn the K-Cup® upside down and gently squeeze the sides until the Bath bomb pops out.
I told you these were easy! I promise, when you have your warm cup of coffee and the bombs bursting in the water all around you, you will feel like you really escaped your day! My girls love these too as they color the water and the sprinkles sort of dance on top!
