How can I reuse or recycle bath cubes/bombs?

We’ve had an email from Maggie:

I found a box of lavender bath cubes while cleaning out my mum’s bathroom cupboard at the weekend. Mum says she doesn’t like them and I can’t use them because of my sensitive skin. Is there anything I can do with them or should I throw them in the bin?

As we often say on here, try to pass them on to someone else to use – Freecycle/Freegle them or if the pack is unopened, a local charity shop or jumble sale etc might like them.

Does anyone have any reuse suggestions for if that’s not possible (opened packs for example)? The only thing I can think of is distinctly unseasonal – to make bubbling cauldrons at a Halloween party.

Anyone got any other ideas?

  1. Are they wrapped in something that would stop little ones eating them. Look like perfect size for little garden bowls for the grand kids.

    They could be repackaged in a nice jar for regifting (as bath salts if smashed up).
    Kids (without sensitive skin) love them -you call them ‘bath bombs’ for them!! -maybe one in the paddling pool for summer fun!

    If you liked the scent, but can’t use them with your sensitive skin, would they work as sachets? Maybe wrap a bit of cheesecloth or thin fabric around them, maybe smush them first to help release the scent, then tuck them in among your clothes?

    Along the same lines as ‘smellies’ for your drawers – put them in hanging bags (I find they work left as they are and leave less dust over things) then hang them in your bathroom to give a pleasant scent rather than using air fresheners! You can find organza gift bags for them – for a small cost – in some places that sell lots of bath bombs.

    You could have a spa session. Use them in a bowl of water with boiling water to create scented steam.

    Local Red Cross, shelters & refuges are usually very glad to receive toiletry items for their clients, as well as food, writing paper, etc donations.

    If they are wrapped and in as new condition, the answer is to sell them to me. My wife loves them and I can’t find where to buy any.
