I am brand new to making bath bombs. I used a mica for color which didn't work well due to the fact that the mica completely separated out and floated and stuck all to the sides of the tub. Huge mess to clean afterwards. Unfortunately I made 12 large bombs like this. Can't sell them and don't want to use them. Can they be broken apart and remade or repurposed? If so, how? Also, does anyone use sunflower lecithin as an emulsifier? Thanks!

Some people use a Polysorbate so the color stays mixed and doesn't separate.
Lecithin is not strong enough as an emulsifier here.

Thank you, Irene. Anyone have ideas on uses for bath bombs that don't turn out well? I have 12 large ones and hate to just throw it away.

Can you crumble them up and sell them as Fairy Dust?
