DIY non-toxic toilet cleaning bomb tutorial

Here’s an easy DIY to eliminate bathroom/toilet odor. It’s also a great DIY non-toxic toilet cleaner. Lemongrass, bergamot and grapefruit essential odors kill the odor. The entire product is not only very efficient, it will save you a lot of money then buying a similar product in the store!

– 1 1/3 cup Baking soda (deodorizes)
– 1/2 cup Citric acid (removes stains)
– 30 drops each of the following essential oils: Lemongrass, bergamot and grapefruit (this blend will kill any odor!!)
– 3 drops of blue or green natural food coloring (just for pretty aesthetic)

– Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the food coloring and mix well. Place the oils in a small spray bottle with 1/2 tsp water.
– Spritz the mixture until it feels like slightly wet (not too wet) sand.
– Press into silicone cookie molds or ice cube trays. Allow the bombs to dry completely before pressing out of the molds. Store in a mason jar with a pretty label.

To Use: Toss a bomb into the toilet BEFORE YOU GO (particularly #2). This way there will be zero odor.

Wow, taking credit for something that’s been part of the DIY community for ages. Just shameless. More appropriate to say inspired by an amazing global community of DIYers… doesn’t take anything away from you.

Put in a “flavor” and the dog-drinker would have a sweet snack while drinking from the toilet!

I made a comment to you about baking soda takes out odors so why use essential oils or any other scents? And since you publicly TRIED TO CORRECT ME WITH MY SPELLING YOU FIRST NEED TO READ THE BEGINNING OF YOUR RESPONDS. All of these recipes given with the use of baking soda to DESTROY ODORS, once again I’m asking why use ESSENTIAL OILS, Is it not a sent or a odor? YOU FEEL ME!!
