    Step 1:

    1. Place the ½ cup baking soda, ¼ cup citric acid, and ¼ cup cornstarch in a large bowl. Stir to remove lumps and mix well.
    2. Add the water slowly to the mixture, ½ tbsp at a time. Adding water too quickly can cause the mixture to fizz. Stir between each ½ tbsp of water. Once the mixture feels like damp sand (that would be perfect for making a sandcastle), you’ve reached the perfect amount of water.

    To Use Shower Steamer:

    Take into the shower with you and wet it under the stream of water to activate it. Place the steamer at the far end of the bath/shower stall. Keep the steamer out of the shower’s direct stream to ensure a longer lasting steamer.

    Caution:

    Oils being brought into the shower can make surfaces slippery. Make sure to use a shower mat and wipe down the shower floor when finished.
