You may occasionally throw a little bleach into the toilet and you may clean it every once in a while with a cloth, but your toilet deserves a thorough cleaning as well! So try out these toilet bombs yourself! If you consider how often you use your toilet, how often guests use your toilet and how many bottoms have actually been on your toilet, you may start to feel a bit queasy.
Even if you throw bleach in the toilet every day; your toilet also needs a good scrub occasionally. And since it is not our favourite thing to clean, we do not do it often enough. But then we discovered these toilet bombs! You do not have to get your hands dirty at all.. Perfect!
This is what you need:
- 30 drops of lemon essential oils
- 30 drops of lavender essential oils
- 30 drops of peppermint essential oils
- 120 ml of citric acid
- 250 grams of baking soda
- half-sphere silicone baking mould
This is how to make it:
First, put on a mouth cap. Put the baking soda and the citric acid in a large bowl and mix them together. Take a spray bottle and put the essential oils in it. Stir slowly! Add a little water to the spray bottle if the mixture is not damp enough. Do this with some caution; adding too much water will prevent the mixture from ‘exploding’ when you throw it into the toilet.
Put the mixture into the silicone half-sphere mould and leave it to dry for six hours. After drying, put them in an airtight container. To use: grab a ball and drop it in the toilet. The ball will now start foaming. Wait until the ball has finished foaming and you are done! The toilet bowl will now be clean and it will smell awesome!
