The Story Behind National Bubble Bath Day

The origins of National Bubble Bath Day are disputed, with some sources dating it back to the 1960s and others claiming it gained national recognition in and around 1999.

It was famously created by someone who understood the significance of unwinding after a busy day and how bubble baths can help you relax. 

One of the greatest advantages of running a bubble bath is that the bubbles at the top insulate the water, thus keeping it warmer for a longer time period.

Since the Roman age, bathing has been a very common practice but it was only during the 20th century that bubble baths became a thing due to the invention of soap flakes. In the 1930s most people enjoyed bubble baths, but it was in the 1940s that they really grew in popularity. 

Mr. Bubble, a popular bath product in the United States, has delighted people and filled countless tubs.
