DIY Toilet Cleaner Bombs

I love to create my own cleaning products. This combination of baking soda, washing soda and citric acid not only works great for toilet bowls, it works well for sinks and bathtubs!
Add these boosts to your cleaning regimen. They make a great gift, along with homemade Vinegar of the Four Thieves. Recipe is here: http://it-takes-time.com/2014/04/diy-herbal-cleaner.html

    I'll bet this would wook good for cleaning tea stains in my favorite tea jug that has crevices I can't get the stain out with a brush and baking soda.

      Bleach is toxic. While it may be great to kill germs, I wouldn't soak dishes or cookware with it because it may be absorbed into the surface. How do I know? My mother cleaned with bleach all the time. It is far better to use vinegar and baking soda and a little elbow grease. This not only cleans and kills germs but doesn't leave toxic residue.

      I've put Denture Tablets in my toilet bowl for stains as well. Works well for a quick clean between cleans
