Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has a scene where Harry has to work out the clue for the next task by taking a bath in the prefects bathroom with a very fancy bath.

Harry Potter (might be goblet of fire)?

He has a bath with lots of taps with different scents/bubbles etc and then finds Moaning Myrtle is in the room.

It's ringing a tiny, distant bell in my brain, OP. Something about a boy who has a magical object? I'll have a think...

I know this one! I think it's the giant's bathtub, by Margaret mahy. I've got it in the chewing-gum rescue collection of stories. The family buy a new house, which used to belong to a giant, and swim in the bath every night. The soap is magic and slivers turn the water into orange juice, or make rainbow bubbles. The mum is a champion archer (I think) and the dad is an accountant, and one day the get accidentally sucked down the plug hole...
