Need a quick fix for cleaning the toilet? Or just a quick freshening up? Drop one or two of these in and let it sizzle away. Give it a scrub or just let it sizzle, then flush.

DIY Toilet Bowl Bombs

2 cups baking soda
1/3 cup citric acid
2 tablespoons hydrogen peroxide
15 drops lemon essential oil
5 drops peppermint essential oil
silicone ice cube tray
mason jar – I used two
I have all the ingredients in these and most of my DIY recipes in my Amazon shop here – look for the DIY cleaning section.

In a glass bowl, stir to combine the baking soda and citric acid. Slowly add the hydrogen peroxide – fizzing is normal – until the mixture is a thick and almost crumbly paste. Add the essential oils, combining them well.

Push the mixture into ice cube or silicone trays and allow to dry for at least 24 hours – outside in the sun works best. When the cubes or bombs are thoroughly dry (they should be very hard), remove them from the tray and store them in a glass jar with a secure lid.

Use one per toilet for a quick clean or an in-between-cleaning freshening up.
