DIY Toilet Bombs

DIY-Toilet-Bombs-Title-300x400

Ingredients

  • ½ cup baking soda
  • ½ cup citric acid
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • water in a spray bottle
  • gallon size zip-top bag
  • 25 drops essential oils – your choice but I recommend lemon or orange for its cleaning properties, plus two others for nice-smelling purposes.

Supplies:

  • mold of your choice – I like to use a muffin tin with cute liners for easy, individual storing
  • giant Ziploc baggie

Steps:

  • Throw all of your ingredients  EXCEPT the essential oils together in the bag and shake, shake, shake.
  • Open the bag back up and add 2-3 spritzes of water. Close the bag and knead.
  • Repeat step 2 5-7 times. (If the bag gets puffy, just let the air out, it’s the baking soda and the citric acid combining)
  • You want the mixture to feel like pie dough – squeeze a handful and if it stays together you’re ready.
    • try not to over-water
  • Now add your essential oils and re-knead the mixture.
  • Pack firmly into your molds (very, very firmly. I use a second muffin tin to press them down).
  • Let them dry for two days. Then move them out of the molds (hey, muffins!) and then put them somewhere up high to finish drying for another day or two.
  • Store in a sealed container until you need to use them!

Using these is easy. Just drop them into your bowl until they stop fizzing. You can use a scrubby brush to clean off anything else and then flush. Good for you, good for the environment.
