Toilet Cleaning Bombs - Mix together 1/2 cup baking soda and 1/2 cup citric acid. Add a teaspoon of lemon juice and mix together. Add a small amount of water and mix until you can make the mixture stick together.
Use a mold or simply shape into a small ball and let dry before use.
Toss the toilet cleaning bomb into your bowl and let it sit until it stops fixing.

Odor Eliminator & more...Fill a sugar container or jar with holes top with baking soda.
Sprinkle some of the baking soda into your trash can to help stop odors.
Add a little baking soda to the bottom of your toilet brush stand. Fill the rest of the stand with rubbing alcohol, and place your toilet brush inside the stand.
Place both the toilet brush and open baking soda container in your bathroom.The alcohol will help kill germs, the baking soda will help remove odors.
Room Freshening Spray - Fill a spray bottle with water and add a little baking vanilla or scent of your choice (you could use essential oil as well).
Spray in your bathroom to fight odors and keep it smelling nice.
After vacuuming or sweeping, clean your floor with a steam mop. It cleans with water, and the high temperature kills germs.
Fight the Mildew Smell - Wash your towels regularly to fight germs and mildew. Place into your washing machine and add a little washing soda. Use your regular soap and run the load. The washing soda brightens them and fights the mildew odor.
