Harry Potter bath bomb tells people which house they're in

Posted at 1:03 PM, Dec 22, 2016
Another entry in the never-ending parade of “Harry Potter” items for fans everywhere: This time, you can take Harry with you when you get in the bath.
Well, kinda sorta.

When you drop one of these “Sorting Hat Bath Bombs” in a tub of warm water, it will reveal your “true house.” The bombs start out as a white ball with red, yellow, blue and green stripes.

Once you drop them in the water, they suds turn from white to red (Gryffindor), yellow (Hufflepuff), blue (Ravenclaw) or green (Slytherin), which represent each of the four Hogwarts houses.

This Instagrammer shows us how it works:

The bad news — Rebecca Lynn, the woman who makes these gems, is currently out of stock. The good news? Look for ’em again on Jan. 1.

Lynn makes a number of other awesome bath bombs, like this galaxy bomb:
