How do I store my DIY Flower Bath Bombs with Geranium? How long will it last?
To ensure these homemade beauties last longer, it’s important to store them properly. Ideally, store them in airtight containers or air-tight plastic bags to keep air and moisture out.
When storing homemade bath bombs, avoid warm and humid environments such as bathrooms – instead, place them in cool and dry places such as shelves or cupboards away from humidity because moisture will eventually contaminate the product and reduce its shelf life.
For best results, try to use the bath bombs within 3 months of making them as this will maximize their shelf life. Storing them correctly will help preserve their fizziness so that your homemade bath bombs won’t start to degrade or melt and are still just as good when you use them.
