Does anyone make bath fizzy, fairy dust, bath dust (whatever you like to call it). I tried some today and it went totally hard when I put it in the jars. I used the bath bomb recipe (sodium bicarbonate, citric acid, colour, fragrance) and it was light and fluffy - put into jars - went and picked boys up from school and so excited to show them what I had made and then disaster it had turned into a solid lump - any suggestions - could it be that I had put a bit too much fragrance or colour in or should I add something else to the recipe.
Idea of the bath dust is for you to sprinkle into the bath which then gives the effect of a bath bomb but it isn't a solid lump.
Any suggestions gratefully received.The Soap Fairy xx

Make really rough bath bombs out of it first then bag n' crush...
In effect it's probably turned into an overgrown bath bomb in the container and you'll need to crush it back down - never stays as a loose powder for me straight from being made up...
I just use a large zip lock - squidge the excess air out - wrap a tea towel around it and then vent some frustrations via a rolling pin...
Once it's really well crushed you can push it through a sieve and shove in a container - needs to be a fairly good seal or it'll start to fizz and mushroom if it gets damp...

Imagine wicked cackling and vengeful bashing of bath bomb mis shapes...
It should be a recognised therapy in my book!Ann-Marie

if you add any liquid to the bath dust mixture it's going to go hard, I do as Ann-Marie does make the dust, let it set and then crush it usually with a rolling pin,
