6 Ways to Use Bath Bombs Without a Tub

The benefits of bath bombs go beyond the standard bathtub. With DIY creative ideas, you can utilize them for different purposes in your house. Here are 6 ways to use bath bombs without a bathtub.


No bathtub? No problem!

One way you can still enjoy your bath bombs without a bathtub is dissolving them in a bucket or basin of water, then scooping the water and pouring it on your body.

The fresh and invigorating feeling is still felt all over the body. Using warm water for this purpose gives the best results.


You don’t need to use these bombs on the whole body to feel their great benefits. You can use them as a foot soak especially after a hard day at work. A vibrating soak like the Conair Foot Spa/Pedicure Spa with Soothing Vibration Massage can really make your experience better.

Fill your bucket or basin with warm water. Rather than throwing in the whole bath bomb, cut it into two halves then drop one half into the bucket/basin. Soak in your feet for about 15 to 20 minutes.

You can do yourself one more by scrubbing your feet and toes.

When you’re done, pat your feet dry before walking away. This is because the oil in the bath bombs can make your feet very slippery. This increases the risk of falling or tripping.


There are two ways to use bath bombs in the shower;

  • You can put it into an organza bag, tie one end to the showerhead. When you turn on the hot water shower, its steam will make the bath bomb release the fragrance into your bath.
  • You can also place the bath bomb on the floor of the bathroom. When the water hits the floor, it will also come into contact with the bath bomb releasing its fragrance.

You will still have a bath that smells and feels great even without a bathtub.


Away from the bathtub, you can use your bath bombs as a drawer sachet to fill your drawer with a great aroma. Using sachets is also one of the great ways to store bath bombs.

To do this, put a bath bomb inside an organza bag then tie one end and place it in your drawer. The smell will float in the drawer leading to great-smelling clothes.
