Do you use bath bombs after a stressful day at the office? Have you ever heard that bath bombs can be bad for your plumbing? Unfortunately, it’s true: bath bombs can cause clogs in your drains, unless a few precautions are taken. Knowing the danger of using bath bombs and what you can do to prevent problems can help you take care of your bathtub drains.
Bath bombs are a scented, fizzy bath salt designed to dissolve in your tub and relax your muscles. Upon placing bath bombs in a bathtub full of warm water, your bathroom will start to smell like flowers or perfume and the water will fizz around your body. Bath bombs are great after a hard day at work or after a stressful day at school. They also make excellent gifts.
Bath bombs are made up of a variety of materials that are not always good for your bathtub. Some of the problems you might encounter include:
In the case of a hot tub, bath bombs can do more than just a little damage. Bath bombs can destroy the functionality of your hot tub in just a few uses. Small pieces found inside bath bombs can destroy the jets and cause devastating clogs.
Fortunately, there’s a way to enjoy bath bombs in your bathtub without destroying the components of your tub. If you’re using your bath bombs responsibly, you can even use bath bombs regularly without making problems.
