Quick Tips: Epsom Salt Bath Treatments


2
Use the Right Amount

Don't overdo it when adding Epsom salts to your bath. All that's usually needed for a standard-size bathtub is 1 to 2 cups (about 237 to 474 grams). After you pour it into your bath water, make sure it's fully dissolved before you step in. Undissolved Epsom salt can leave a white residue on your skin.
