- Shake the bottle gently before each use to distribute the ingredients.

How To Use This DIY Toilet Bowl Cleaner:
You will use this just like a store-bought version. After gently shaking, lightly squeeze a layer at the top of the toilet bowl. Scrub with a toilet brush well.
Purify essential oil combines oils that help with odor removal and bacteria. Check blog post for other essential oil options!
We love these squeeze bottles for easy application just like store-bought toilet cleaners. You can find these in our blog post or feel free to use anything you have!
