DIY Toilet Cleaning Bombs

Cleaning toilets is one of the worst jobs in our house.  No. one. wants.to. do. it. ever.

That is why I love these nifty little fizzy toilet bombs.  They serve two purposes.  They clean and deodorize the toilet….both of which are helpful.

They only take a few ingredients, and if you have problems finding the citric acid you can look online on amazon. We live smack dab in the middle of wine country, California, so I just went to a store that helps sells supplies to wine makers and bough it there.

Boom Boom Bombs

  • 1 1/3 cup baking soda
  • ½ cup citric acid
  • 1 tsp water
  • 30 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 30 drops Peppermint essential oil
  • 30 drops Lemon essential oil

Mix the baking soda and citric acid together in a small bowl. The next step is to add the water and essential oils to the mixture. To minimize the fizzing action, add the water and oils in a little bit at a time…or just dump in if you’ve got a big enough bowl to handle the fizzing action and you are impatient like me. Stir the mixture until all combined. You are wanting it to clump and hold together. You can add a little more water if needed. Then, scoop or spoon the mixture into your silicone mold of choice, and pack each one down firmly. Allow the bombs to dry for several hours, then remove them gently from the mold and they’re ready to use!  Store in a glass container, and do your best not to have your kids use them up in one day…..
