You’ll need baking soda, citric acid, an essential oil of choice, and a mold to shape your bath bombs.

STEP THREE: Add 10-20 drops of the essential oil of your choice. I chose bergamot for a fresh, clean scent.

STEP FOUR: Begin spraying water into mixture using a water bottle. Add this water slowly till it gets to a consistency where you can start to hold and form it.

STEP FIVE: Start forming your toilet cleaning bombs. You can roll it with your hands or use an ice cube tray to shape the concoction. Let the bombs harden for one hour.

STEP SIX: Drop the hardened cleaning bombs into your toilet and let the do the work!

Once you drop the bomb in it fizzes, cleans and freshens your toilet. Just let it sit for 10 minutes before you flush!

    Would a locker be too tall and daunting for a five year old? Love this idea for my new kindergarten class.

    My husband suggested using Rain-X like we use on car windshields during rainy seasons.

      Careful with the Rain-X..... Your tub/shower floor can become super slick when you turn the water on to bathe or shower!
