Default epsom salts

I have been putting epsom salts into the warm bucket of water I clean my beads in as a a help for my sore thumb joints, has any one else tried this a s a help for those sore joints?

Supposedly your skin is able to absorb some of those trace minerals.

Are your sore joints feeling better? I just bought 3 bags of epsom salt and didn't know why. I'll try it next batch of beads.

Huh. I use epsom salts for sore muscles and just never thought to put it into the bead cleaning water.

well, joints do feel better, don't know if the epsom salts are responsible but I'm going to keep using them because...why not?

Just don't rust out your metal bead cleaning tools.

Mandy, I used to worry about this until I used some petroleum jelly to gently lubricate my chuck and the shafts of cleaning bits. Even if the water splashes up that far, no worries. (I know this because I rusted out the first chuck on my Dremel)
