I love having a super clean toilet and our Peppermint Toilet Cleaner does a great job when its time for a full clean, but what about those busy times? I’ve been thinking of ways to keep the toilet fresh and hygienic with something that the kids can use easily in between cleans or that I can quickly pop in when guests are coming over and I’ve run out of time.
These Toilet Bombs are perfect to drop in the toilet for an instant freshen up; the citric acid creates a good fizz whilst dispersing the baking soda, Castile and peppermint essential oil. If you keep them in a jar within reach they’re very easy for anyone to use.
1 Cup Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Citric Acid
1.5 Tbl Dr Bronners Peppermint Liquid Castile Soap
3 ml Peppermint Essential Oil
2 x Silicone ice cube trays
Mix the baking soda and citric acid together then add Castile soap and peppermint essential oil, stir well to combine, cover with a tea towel and leave for 10 minutes to let the mixture expand, don’t leave any longer than this as it can go to hard and you won’t be able to put it easily into the trays.
After 10 minutes squash the mixture into the ice cube trays and push down really well, leave to set, mine took about half an hour. Once set hard carefully remove the bombs from the trays and they’re ready to use, I keep mine in a jar near the toilet and so far they’ve stayed hard. To use place one bomb in the toilet bowl when it needs freshening up.
