Print this recipe
Let's be honest, cleaning the toilet is the grossest chore in the house. We all hate it, and we all probably do it a whole lot less than we should. But what if cleaning the toilet didn't involve getting on your hands and knees to scrub it? That'd be ideal, right?
Well, that's where these nifty little toilet bombs come in. It's the same concept as a bath bomb, the mixture is going to foam up once it touches the water -- disinfecting and cleaning all the unmentionable corners you'd rather not touch.

Take your baking soda and put it in a bowl, then dump your citric acid in on top. As you mix slowing pour in your essential oils and mix that all together well, too. Then you need to add a bit of water so it all sticks.
That's when you're going to transfer it to the ice cube tray to shape it, like this above. Make sure to press down on the mixture so it gets the nice shape of the tray and all the ingredients stick together.

Now you have to let the toilet bombs sit over night so they keep their mold. After that, they'll be sturdy enough to toss in a mason jar until you need them.
When you're ready to use one, simply place one of your homemade toilet bombs into the toilet bowl and let it work its magic. Then flush! Your toilet is going to be squeaky clean and smell great, too.
