Toilet cleaning bombs

If there’s a housework I really dislike, it’s the bathroom cleaning. I don’t like it especially because of all the vapors from the bleach and other cleaning substances. I try to substitute them with homemade detergents such as these toilet bombs.

You will need:

  • 1 cup of baking soda
  • 1 cup of citric acid
  • zest from 1 lemon
  • essential oils tea tree and lavender
  • spray bottle with some water
  • silicone molds or other molds, eventually also something to cover them with


In a bowl, mix the lemon zest, baking soda and citric acid. Add 10 drops from each essential oil.


Start adding water from the spray bottle, just little by little. The mixture mustn’t be soaked, just wet enough to hold together when you try to form it with your hand.

Press the mixture in your mold. If you have a silicone mold, you can press the mixture directly in it. I use coconut shells which I first cover with some aluminium foil. Let the bombs dry for at least 6 hours in a dry place.

To use it just throw one bomb in your toilet and let it foam, then clean with a toilet brush. The bomb will help getting rid of the limestone and will also make your bathroom smell great.
