NATIONAL BUBBLE BATH DAY
On a cold winter’s day, relaxing in a nice warm/hot bubble bath sounds like the perfect way to commemorate National Bubble Bath Day. Is it no wonder we celebrate it annually on January 8th?
The bubbles on top of the water (also known as foam bath or foaming bath) insulate the bathwater, keeping it warmer for a more extended period.
- Children find bubble baths fun and enjoy playing with the bubbles, which entice them to take their baths.
- Some bubble bath, bath foam, or foaming bath serves a dual purpose and can also be used to wash skin or hair.
- Bath foam preparations may be in the form of a liquid, gel, or solids in the form of powders, grains, or tablets.
According to the AC Nielsen Data, Mr. Bubble is the #1 brand of bath products in the United States, and in 2011 it celebrated its 50th birthday. Mr. Bubble is a brand of bath products made by The Village Company.
The brand’s slogan is “Makes Getting Clean Almost as Much Fun as Getting Dirty!”
In 1961, Mr. Harold Schafer and the Gold Seal Company of North Dakota, USA, founded Mr. Bubble. The Gold Seal company manufactured and distributed Mr. Bubble until 1986 when the company was sold.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalBubbleBathDay
Prepare yourself a relaxing bubble bath. Bubble baths offer health benefits, too.
- Relieve congestion – During the dry winter months, we are more susceptible to colds and chest infections. Let the steam from a bubble bath help loosen congestion and sooth a cough.
- Ease sore muscles – Are muscles aching from new year’s workouts? Ease the ache with a warm bubble bath. Add some Epsom salts, too.
- Sleep better – Add some lavender oil to your bubble bath at night and relax your body and mind before bed. Relaxed muscles combined with the lavender will nudge your body toward a better sleep routine.
- Reduce tension – Let the worries of the day wash away.

The country has been celebrating the day since at least 1999. However, we’ve been unable to find the creator of the day. Maybe they’re still taking a bubble bath.
Bubble Bath FAQ
Q. Should I add bubble bath to the tub before or after adding water?
A. For the maximum bubble factor, add the bubble bath after there are a few inches of water in the tub but before you’ve finished filling it.
Q. Do bath bombs create bubbles?
A. Bath bombs create more of a temporary fizz releasing oils and aromatics to your bath. The bubbles it creates do not last long. However, you can use both a bath bomb and bubble bath for a more luxurious experience.
Q. Does bubble bath only come in liquid form?
A. No. Bubble bath also comes in bars, granules, and pods.
