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!
DIY Toilet Cleaner Bombs
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 washing soda (You can use all baking soda if you don't have washing soda on hand, or make your own washing soda from 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?

    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?

    How do I get black or green spots off the outside of my garage walls. I tried pure bleach most came off but not all of it. ?

    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!
