I don't think I'd use it.  Look at the active ingredients, are they really things you want on your skin?  Since we don't know which kind of alka seltzer it is, it makes it even harder to know what is in it.  Some of the inactive ingredients also may not be meant for skin use and could cause irritation.

Go ahead and either buy bath bombs, or make them from proper ingredients.

I've had the whole "try a new bath bomb/bath gel and break out into a read itchy rash" thing, both from things with "flavours" that I had never had a reaction to before. If you are not sure, put a little bit of smooshed alka seltzer on to a patch of skin, and leave it a while to see if anything happens.

just buy some citric acid and mix it with some cornstarch and baking soda - mist it with water and it will form bath bombs (add coloring and smelly stuff to the cornstarch) hold on - I will go get the actual recipe...

1/2 c Baking Soda
1/4 c Citric Acid
1/4 c Cornstartch

mix together in a bowl - spray with water and mix with your hands until it forms a ball when you squeeze it. Form into shapes or place into molds. Let dry 24 hours. They work really well. I had to buy the citric acid from the health food store or the drugstore - the drugstore was really expensive though.

hmm...i looked this up and (silly me right) see that they show the following ingredients for alka seltzer:

ALKA-SELTZER Original, Cherry, and Lemon-Lime:
Aspirin 325 mg ................... ................... ......... Analgesic
Citric acid 1000 mg ................... ................... ..... Antacid
Sodium bicarbonate (heat-treated) 1916 mg ...... Antacid

Hrm.

I might just be tempted to try this.

LOL

I have seen and bought citric acid at my supermarket for a couple of dollars (namely because it tastes so darn good). Is there a difference between the cooking-ish kind, and the kind that you use to make these, or is it just the same?
