If you pack the bath bombs too densely, they will be harder to remove from the mold. The more material you cram into the molds, the harder the bath bombs will be to remove.
You want to pack them tight enough so that they maintain a consistent shape, but not so much that you have to force the mold closed.
2) Use The Proper Moisture
Using the wrong amount of moisture in your bath bombs can also make it more difficult to remove the bath bombs from the molds. If the bath bombs are too dry, they will crumble and fall apart.
If the bath bombs are too wet, they will be difficult to remove from the mold and may not hold their shape as well.
A release agent is a substance that you apply to the mold before adding the bath bomb mixture. This will help to release the bath bomb from the mold more easily.
There are a few different options for release agents, including mineral oil, petroleum jelly, and cooking spray.
4) Use The Right Mold
If you’re having trouble removing bath bombs from your mold, it may be time to invest in a new mold. Some molds are just easier to use than others.
Silicone molds are often the easiest to use, as they flex and release the bath bomb more easily.
If you’ve tried all of the above tips and you’re still having trouble removing bath bombs from your mold, it may be time to try a different recipe.
Different recipes can yield different results, so it’s worth experimenting until you find one that works well for you.
Open the mold a little early, before the bath bomb has dried but after it can hold its shape. Then you can prop it up and allow it to finish drying free of the mold.
Just make sure you are VERY careful with it, or else it may fall apart.
Putting the mold in the freezer for a few minutes can sometimes help the bath bomb to fall out.
Tap on the mold to try and loosen it up. This can sometimes help the bath bomb to fall out more easily.
If you still can’t get the bath bomb out of the mold, you can try gently pressing it out. Be careful not to apply too much pressure, as this could cause the bath bomb to break.
If you have a silicone mold you can start pressing on the backside while gently trying to remove the bath bomb.
making bath bombs can be a bit of an art, and it may take some practice to get them just right. If you’re having trouble removing bath bombs from your mold, don’t be discouraged.
Keep trying different techniques until you find one that works for you. With a little practice, you’ll be a bath bomb master in no time!
