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:
You'll need cup baking soda

cup citric acid
15 drops essential oil (options include tea tree, lemon or rosemary)
1 tablespoon salt
spray bottle with water
silicone mold (any size or shape will work)
Combine all of the above in a bowl. Spray water onto mixture and blend with your hands. Press into molds. That's it!

    Is it one time use? And where do you put it in the toilet?

      One time use, just plop in in the bowl and let it do its work

    Did anyone else have the experience where you put the mixture into the mold and it starts to expand, and expand, and expand? I feel like I'm in an I Love Lucy episode!! Did I do something wrong?

      also, if your eggs come in plastic containers you can use them as your molds...I also use the egg cont. for when grandkids come over and they want to paint...holds the different colors and I leave some empty for mixing colors and water for rinsing...

      I use tilex. I spray it and let it sit 3 -5 minutes then spray it down with the hose. I did my whole house. Love tilex. I used the mold & mildew one.

    I opted to forgo the squares/shapes and kept the mix loose. You can dry it in a parchment paper, then crumble when dry. Store in airtight container. 1 tsp per use. This also works in the dishwasher!
