If you want a sparkling clean toilet bowl without using harsh chemical cleaners, then why not try out this recipe for DIY toilet bombs using all natural ingredients.
This recipe is a variation on the original one I have been using for the past year or so. The difference is that this new recipe includes two further ingredients: white spirit vinegar and hydrogen peroxide; both excellent all natural sanitizers.
They take just a few minutes to prepare.
Store in an airtight container, and use daily to keep your toilet bowl sparkling!
- 1 and 1/3 cup Baking soda
- 1/4 cup Citric acid
- 1/2 tbsp drops Essential oils of your choice
- 1/2 tsp white vinegar
- 1tbsp hydrogen peroxide
You Will Also Need
- Large mixing bowl
- measuring cups and spoons
- spray bottle (fine mist)
- silicon moulds
Sift the baking soda and citric acid in a large mixing bowl and mix well using a whisk.
In a spray bottle add all the liquid ingredients. Shake well and then begin to slowly spray onto dry ingredients while whisking.
Be careful not to oversaturate the dry ingredients or you will activate them.
Once your mixture has reached a wet sand consistency that will hold its shape when squeezed, you are ready to spoon the mixture into your silicone moulds.
Make sure you tightly pack in the mixture.
Leave to set overnight.
Next day, pop out of the moulds and store in an airtight container or jar.
We keep a jar in each bathroom and each day I pop one in the toilet bowl, wipe down and clean the rest of the bathroom as the toilet bomb fizzes away, and then scrub the toilet and give it a flush. It keeps everything nice and clean without the need for harsh chemicals.
