Toilet Cleaning Bombs

4 Materials
10 Minutes
Got a dirty toilet, but you’re too lazy to clean up the mess?

No worries, I got you covered with this easy peasy toilet bomb.
You’ll need baking soda, citric acid, an essential oil of choice, and a mold to shape your bath bombs.
STEP ONE: Add 1/2 cup of citric acid (or 8 tablespoons) into a bowl.
STEP TWO: Add 1 ½ cup baking soda (or 24 tablespoons).
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!
