tiny!

These are a lot smaller than I expected. Very disappointed. I was under the impression that they were closer to a normal bath bomb size but when I got them, I was surprised. They are no bigger than a bouncy ball that comes from one of those change machines. I guess I could use them for something else but for the regular size ones, these will not do.

Difficult to use

What I like about this mold: the size. It's a perfect bath fizzle size. The mondo size is overkill and expensive for customers. This smaller ball size makes the perfect size fizzy. Ok, so now the bad stuff. I must add my voice to Christy and Victoria. These molds are VERY difficult to open. Twice I've had to use pliers to get them open. Once, even the pliers couldn't get one open, and I had to cut the fizzle out. I gave a few bath bombs to my niece to get her kids excited about bath time. She also said she had a very difficult time getting them open. You recommend cleaning the rims before closing. Very difficult to get them clean, especially if you are wearing gloves. The mold is also unforgiving about your fizzle-making technique. If you fill the halves just a little too much, the mold won't close. If you fill them a little too little, the two halves won't stick together. Even mounded a little loose mixture in each half as recommended doesn't always help. in addition, If you don't use quite enough witch hazel, then when you finally do get the mold open, your fizzy breaks in half. these suckers are just too frustrating. Please bring us more fizzy molds, Bramble Berry. (and yes, I have used the wax melt molds. Those work very well and they are cute. But they are teeny tiny!!

For the nimble

In truth, I was never able to get these to work. Once closed, I could not open them without killing the poor bath bomb but I have seen them used where this did not happen - so I know it's possible. I am assuming there is a secret trick to it, but if you are not the most graceful with these things - I recommend the stainless steel molds. They are easy to use and can withstand all manner of abuse. They are a bit more expensive but WELL worth it.

Hi Christy! I'm sorry these molds were a bit tough to open. They do shut tightly to keep your bath bomb in securely, which can make for a tricky removal. Also, if any of the bath bomb mixture made its way into the seams, it may make the molds more difficult to open. It can help to clear off any powder before closing the molds, as seen in the Tie-Dye Bath Bomb Molds Tutorial. The Stainless Steel Bath Bomb Molds are another great mold option.

Do Not Recommend

I'm highly disappointed in these. They are way to hard to open. My attempts to open them cause my bombs to break or dent. If you use two ends thst do not connect as a mold, it works much better.

If you're looking for a reusable mold, you may like the Stainless Steel Bath Bomb Mold.

haven't used them yet

i should pay more attention to measurements, it seems. i went to use these for the first time today, and they are so incredibly disappointingly TINY. wow. i was hoping to use these for an upcoming craft fair, and i wanted to put little toys in the middle. these aren't much bigger than the toys, and the toys were smaller than i was expecting, so that might tell you about how tiny these are. now i've got to figure out what to do with the 50 i ordered, and come up with another plan.

Hi Elly! I'm sorry these molds were smaller than you were hoping. We love the Bath Bomb Mold & Package, though they do make a smaller bomb with a diameter of 2 1/8", as noted on the product page. If you're looking for a larger size I would recommend our Stainless Steel Bath Bomb Mold. It makes the perfect large bath bomb (2.75" across and 3" tall) as seen in our Mondo Bath Bombs tutorial.
