Before placing the salt into the container, place the container in a warm, but not boiling, a pot of water for several minutes so that the salt is softened. It may take some time for the salt to melt and for the mixture to sink to the bottom of the container. Be careful not to add too much salt at one time.
To use the container, place the container in the microwave for a minute or two, but not more than a minute. After it has melted and settled, shake the container gently to mix the mixture thoroughly. Then pour the mixture into your bath salts container.
Never pour more than three to four teaspoons of the salt mixture into the container at one time. If your mixture is too thick or the container is not large enough, the salt may pool and settle at the bottom. This can cause a mess if not cleaned up quickly.
