Homemade Toilet Bowl Cleaner

I love this recipe for Homemade Toilet Bowl Cleaner. With only three ingredients it is easy to use and costs only pennies per serving. I used it and my toilets were shining.
Removing toxins from my home without using chemicals is important, so this non toxic homemade toilet bowl cleaner is a winner. For those of you who don't like the smell of vinegar the Melaleuca essential oil will not only mask the smell but will also serve as a sanitizer.
I highly recommend this do it yourself recipe for Homemade Toilet Bowl Cleaner. I just added the baking soda, Melaleuca or Tee-Tree Essential Oil and then the vinegar and let it soak for about 10 minutes. I followed up by scrubbing it with my toilet bowl brush.
1/2 - 3/4 cup baking soda
8 - 10 drops tea-tree or melaleuca essential oil
1/2 - 3/4 cup distilled white vinegar
Pour Baking Soda directly into the toilet boil add oil, then vinegar - in this order.
Add Essential Oil
Let sit for 10 minutes then scrub boil with brush.
Only 3 ingredients in this Homemade Toilet Bowl Cleaner

    I will check the price of Tea Tree oil at Walmart. Thanks for the tip.

    I haven't seen any testing on Walmarts Teatree oil but their lavender and peppermint were tested by a third-party Chemist and found that neither one of them actually had lavender or peppermint oil in them.
