How to make bath bombs/bath fizzies.
Q: Will citric acid lose it's potency (for making bath fizzies) over time? In other words, what is its shelf life?
A: Citric acid will not lose its potency if it is not exposed to any air and is kept in an airtight container. This probably isn't very feasible in most storage situations though, as humidity is fairly good at getting into the smallest and tightest spaces. I would recommend using your citric acid within 6 months of receiving it to be on the safe side. There is nothing worse than making a batch of fizzies and finding them to be substandard in the fizzing department!

I could not find citric acid anywhere in stores and luckily I found it here for a decent price to start my bath bombs! I purchased the 10lb bag and will be getting more when I run out. Very worth the wait and price.
How much citric acid can I use to lower the PH of CP soaps?
I just made my first, second and third batches of bath fizzies/bombs. I want to share my experience to help others as all of your comments have helped me so often (thank you!). I live in the desert, so no humidity. Nada. A successful batch required a LOT more witch hazel than I have heard that others use. The successful consistency was like that of Moon Sand (R). The key was to spritz 10-15 times, just like Anne-Marie says in her YouTube video. I spritzed, mixed well, spritzed, mixed well; probably 45-60 spritzes. Yes. That much :) I am so pleased with my fizzies! Thank you, Brambleberry.
I recently bought some from Brambleberry and used about 1/4 of it when I got it. When I went to use it again the majority of it was nothing but large and small hard as a rock pieces. I don't know what happened so what can I do? Can I grind it in a coffee grinder? I'm very disappointed as I needed to use it again. And wish it was packaged differently
I love this for making bath bombs. They turn out perfectly every time. I find 1# too small but 10# too much for the amounts I make. It would be convenient to have a 5# size, but no biggie, I just can buy multiple 1# bags. Wish they came in a container vs plastic baggie, but it's easily overcome-able. I store it in a Rubbermaid container and it stays fresh and clump free.
