D.I.Y Toilet Bombs

Green cleaning your bathroom can be easier than you think. In fact, these D.I.Y toilet bombs do all the hard work for you!

All you need to make these scrub-free toilet bombs is:

1/2 cup Citric Acid

1/2 cup Baking Soda

1/2 cup Corn Starch

1 teaspoon of Water

30 drops of Essential Oils of your choice

First, you’ll mix your dry ingredients. Then mix your favorite essential oils [my favorites to use are Tea Tree, Citrus Fresh, Lavender, Peppermint…] with water in a glass spray bottle. Slowly spray the liquid on the dry ingredients. Do this slowly, otherwise your mixture will fizz now instead of waiting for when you put them in the toilet.

Press into your favorite silicone tray then freeze for about 3 hours until they’re fully dry. Store in an airtight jar and get ready to clean your toilet waste AND scrub free!

DIY GOOF OFF / GOO GONE

Ever tried to remove a sticker or piece of tape from a piece of glass, or a manufacturer sticker from a piece of plastic? If so, you are probably left with sticky adhesive on the items surface, or even worse, half of the paper is stuck as well.

All you need is

  • Baking Soda
  • Coconut Oil

Mix equal parts of coconut oil with baking soda to make a paste, and apply it over the affected area. Using the course side of your sponge, rub the solution in a circular motion for about a minute or two, then wipe off with a towel or rag. The adhesive and / or sticky paper should be gone and your items for fish that look like new!

In extreme instances you may have to repeat this process two or three times, but there have been instances where I’ve had to do the same thing with commercially manufactured Goof Off or Goo Gone.
