31 Days of MOO No. 19 - Toilet Bombs

When it comes to keeping the bathroom not only smelling clean, but actually really clean drastic times call for drastic measures. Everyone has times when visiting the bathroom can fill you with dread. It may be you have littlies toilet training or illness in the house or a dozen other reasons. Bathrooms are a thriving bacteria factory.

Deodorize and kill all those unwanted germs with some MOO toilet bombs.

You will need:
1/3 cup bicarbonate soda
1/2 cup citric acid
30 drops of lavender, peppermint and lemon essential oils
A tray to use as a mould - a flexible ice cube tray is good for this

Step 1.  Mix the bicarb soda and citric acid together and add the oils (if the mixture is not damp add a little water to the mixture).

Step 2.  Press the mixture into a mould (an ice cube tray is ideal) and leave to set for around 6 – 8 hours until they are dry.

Once set, they are ready to use. Drop one or two in the toilet last thing at night, let them fizz and bubble and work their wonder overnight. In the morning just flush for a sparkling toilet.

  1. Hi I tried to make these toilet bombs and the mixture wouldn't stop fizzing. I poured the mixture into the ice cube mould and it just kept fizzing. The next morning there was mixture all over the bench top where it had fizzed out of the mould.
    What do you think I did wrong?

  2. They fizz, but they don't fizz that much. The mixture is quite stiff, not at all runny. It sounds like you added too much water - you only need to add water if the mixture won't hold together to be pressed into the moulds.

  3. OK I will buy some more citric acid tomorrow and try again but without adding water unless absolutely necessary - maybe just a small amount if necessary, like 1/4 tsp. I will let you know how I go :-D
