They use only 5 ingredients to inject an unusually beautiful scent into your bathroom.

These Homemade toilet bombs are an integral  part of my toilet and bathroom decor - don't they just look beautiful?;-) I actually keep a few outside the container also, because they're great at deodorizing the air. 

WHAT I USE: (for approx. 24 bombs)

--1 1/3 cup Baking Soda - amazing for all-natural cleaning AND deodorizing!
--1/2 cup Citric Acid - (low-strength acid that exists naturally in fruits like lemons & oranges) - used in many kitchen & bathroom cleaners for its cleaning, whitening & deodorizing properties..


INSTRUCTIONS
  1. I always put medical mask first and then mix together soda and acid.....
  2.  I put oils in a spray bottle and spray little by little stirring the mixture at the same time in order to not let it fizz away...
  3. If the mixture isn't damp enough I add just A TINY BIT of water in my spray bottle and spray the mixture - but again, I try to prevent the acid from fizzing away, because bombs won't explode and will just sink without fizzing if they're too moist....
  4. After that I put the mixture in silicone molds and let them dry for about 6 hours.... 
  5. Then Finally I store the bombs in a container with a lid..

I usually drop one in the toilet bowl whenever I feel like it;-)  Please share using the social buttons below

  2. If you added tea tree oil, you would have more ammo against bacteria.

  8. citric acid is commonly found in powdered form here in Australia, will have to go on a hunt for liquid form...

    1. I dont believe you need to use it in liquid form, you just mix the powders and then spray them with the essential oils to get them ''sticky'' enough to form :) also, you can make citric acid liguid by simply dissolving it in water :)
