I’ll be honest…

I don’t really LOVE¬†to clean my toilets. ūüėõ

I have toddlers and boys, so messes happen often.¬†I’ve discovered something that has helped to keep my toilets fresh and stink free between cleanings.

TOILET BOMBS!!!

Toilet bombs are a mix of baking soda, citric acid and essential oils. They absorb icky odors and help to keep toilets cleaner between cleanings. I drop one into each of our toilets every night before bed. These serious work and smell so nice!

I use¬†Thieves essential oil blend because it’s one of my favorite essential oils for cleaning. Thieves is so popular that Young Living has a whole line of cleaning products made with Thieves essential oil!¬†Of course, you can use your favorite essential oil to freshen your toilet. Lemon and tea tree are two¬†both amazing too!

How To Make Thieves Toilet Bombs

You’re going to need baking soda, citric acid, your favorite essential oils, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, a spray bottle and a cookie sheet. I purchased my baking soda and citric acid from Mountain Rose Herbs. Their baking soda is natural sourced and aluminum free.

Ingredients Thieves Toilet Bombs

Next you’re going to mix 1 cup of baking soda with 1/4 cup of citric acid together in a small bowl.

Ingredients Thieves Toilet Bombs

Pour 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide into your small spray bottle. Add 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar to the bottle. Shake the bottle to mix the ingredients together.

Spray the vinegar/peroxide mix over the baking soda and citric acid. Stir the mixture and continue to spray until its damp enough to form. I used 3/4 of the spray mixture. Add 15-20 drops of essential oils to the mixture and mix very well.

Now¬†you’r going to scoop your toilet bombs out using a teaspoon. Carefully place each bomb on your cookie sheet. Don’t worry if the mixture is a little crumbly. It’ll harden up when it’s dry!

Lastly, you’ll use the remaining vinegar mix to spray the toilet bombs. This step is important because it helps to harden the bombs so the don’t crumble. After you spray the top of the bombs you need to let them dry for 4-6 hours. They’ll harden up nicely and you’ll be able to store them in a container once they’re dry.

How To Use Toilet Bombs

Toss 1-2 bombs into your toilets anytime they need to be freshened up!

    Hi,

    thanks for this great recipe! Can I skip the citric acid or replace it with lemon juice (which I used to think were the same?!)?

    Thanks!

    Do you know how much of the thieves cleaning concentrate would for instead of the pure drops?

    You shouldn’t mix hydrogen peroxide and vinegar in the same bottle because it makes toxic peracetic acid that can harm skin, eyes, respiratory system, etc. Just use one of the disinfectants instead of both in the same bath bomb.

      Thanks for the comment. I should have read it first, but I will definitely just keep the two ingredients separate when using them. ūüôā
