What molds are best for bath bombs? Here are our top bath bomb mold choices for 2020!
Stainless steel and aluminum are super easy to clean and they are made from durable, non-oxidizing metal so they will last and last. To keep your metal bath bomb molds in perfect shape, be sure to tap lightly when removing your bath bomb to prevent denting and always hand wash them.
1. Caydo Metal Bath Bomb Molds
This bath bomb mold set comes in a pack of 15 molds so if you are making a lot of bath bombs at a time, then this is a good choice. We like how there are three different sizes in this set. If you are selling, you have more size options to offer your customers at different price points. The molds are made from food quality aluminum so they will not corrode or break. The smooth surface will help release the bath bombs easily which is super helpful so that your bath bombs don't stick, so this is a good set for beginners and pros too.
Aluminum bath bomb molds can dent if you are tapping too hard to get the bath bomb released so be careful not to tap too hard!
