- DIY Toilet Bombs To Deodorize And Kill Bacteria. I absolutely love all things DIY!
- I’ve thoroughly researched and carried out some of the most strange and weird uses using simple, available household material.
- Toilet bomb fizzes that clean and eliminates smells are easy to make and you’ll be surprised by how effective these natural toilet cleaners are.
- They use only 5 ingredients to inject an unusually beautiful scent into your bathroom.
These Homemade toilet bombs are an integral part of my toilet and bathroom decor – don’t they just look beautiful?;-) I actually keep a few outside the container also, because they’re great at deodorizing the air.
WHAT I USE: (for approx. 24 bombs)
- –1 1/3 cup Baking Soda – amazing for all-natural cleaning AND deodorizing!
- –1/2 cup Citric Acid – ( a low-strength acid that exists naturally in fruits like lemons & oranges) – used in many kitchen & bathroom cleaners for its cleaning, whitening & deodorizing properties.
- –30 drops Lavender Essential Oil**
- –30 drops Peppermint Essential Oil**
- -30 drops Lemon Essential Oil***
- I always put medical mask first and then mix together soda and acid…..
- I put oils in a spray bottle and spray little by little stirring the mixture at the same time in order to not let it fizz away…
- If the mixture isn’t damp enough I add just A TINY BIT of water in my spray bottle and spray the mixture.
- I try to prevent the acid from fizzing away because bombs won’t explode and will just sink without fizzing if they’re too moist….
- After that, I put the mixture in silicone molds and let them dry for about 6 hours….
- Then Finally I store the bombs in a container with a lid.
- 1 cup baking soda —>> get it from the link in the first recipe above
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 teaspoon vinegar
- 1 tablespoon hydrogen peroxide
- 15 to 20 drops essential oil —>> get it from the link in the first recipe above
- Measuring spoons
- Spray bottle (optional)
- Add the baking soda to a mixing bowl. Baking soda naturally cleans and eliminates icky odors, making it the perfect base for the toilet bomb.
- Add the citric acid, and give things a stir. The citric acid adds the fizzy effect to these cleaners.
NOTE; If you’re finding the toilet bomb aren’t super fizzy, try adding an extra tablespoon of citric acid, which might also help if the mixture is sticky or too wet
- In a small glass, mix together the vinegar and hydrogen peroxide, which work together to help clean your commode.
- Now drop by drop, add the vinegar and hydrogen peroxide to the baking soda. If you add the liquid all at once, you’ll have a huge mess due to the reaction between the baking soda and citric acid!
- Now add the essential oil and gently mix. Use a one-half teaspoon to scoop and mold the mixture into small half rounds and then tap onto a parchment-covered sheet pan.
- You can spritz the rounds with equal parts vinegar and water to create a crust, which helps hold them together. Let dry for at least six hours or overnight.
- The next time things get smelly, after flushing, I usually drop one in the toilet bowl whenever I feel like it;-) You’ll love how things freshen up in no time.
