DIY Fizzy Toilet Cleaning Tablets

After searching for many different versions of "Toilet Bomb" recipes online, I decided to experiment with my own variants. I think I have finally found the combination that I like the most. This recipe is primarily baking soda and citric acid with essential oils. However, to give this cleaning power, I decided to add borax as well. This last batch has been the one I was most pleased with, including the form factor.

The quantities given in this recipe will allow you to make about 2 dozen "muffin cakes" if you use a mini muffin pan.

You will need:

2 Cups Baking Soda

1 Cup Citric Acid

1 Cup 20 Mule Team Borax

Essential Oils (I used a combination of Tea Tree Oil and Citrus essential oils: Lemon, Lime, Orange, and Grapefruit)

Water in a spray bottle

Mini muffin tray (you could also use an ice tray)


Step 1

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl

Step 2

Add small amounts of water using your spray bottle until mixture forms a thick paste

Step 3

Scoop mixture into muffin tin and gently pack each tablet down

Step 4

Let dry overnight and then you're done!
