Add 1 cup baking soda to a mixing bowl and break up any clumps. Add 1/4 cup citric acid to this. In a small glass, mix 1/2 tsp vinegar and 1tbsp hydrogen peroxide. Now slowing add this to the baking soda mix as mixing it all in once will cause a mess. You can add a few drops of your favorite essential oils. Scoop them on a parchment paper, let dry and use them.

A dirty toilet is one of the most unpleasant but also the most common sights in a place of office or residence. Harsh chemicals can clean your toilet well, but did you know you can keep your toilet clean naturally with all natural products, too? Here’s a recipe for toilet
Here’s a recipe for toilet fizzies that can help clean and eliminate smells. The best thing is you can personalize this with your favorite scents.
Makes around 30 small fizzies.
What You’ll Need
• 1 cup baking soda
• 1/4 cup citric acid
• 1/2 teaspoon vinegar
• 1 tablespoon hydrogen peroxide
• 15 to 20 drops essential oil
• Sheet pan
• Parchment paper
• Measuring spoons
• Spray bottle (optional)
1. Add the baking soda to a mixing bowl and use a fork to break up any clumps. Baking soda naturally cleans and eliminates icky odors, making it the perfect base for the fizzies.
2. Add the citric acid, or powdered produce preservative, which you can find near the canning supplies at your local grocery store, and give things a stir. The citric acid adds the oomph to these cleaners.
3. In a small glass, mix together the vinegar and hydrogen peroxide, which work together to help clean your commode. Now drop by drop, add the vinegar and hydrogen peroxide to the baking soda. If you add the liquid all at once, you’ll have a huge mess due to the reaction between the baking soda and citric acid!
4. Now add the essential oil and gently mix. Any fragrance works wonderfully, but something fresh like wintergreen, lemongrass, or lavender leaves a wonderful lingering scent.
5. Use a one-half teaspoon to scoop and mold the mixture into small half rounds and then tap onto a parchment-covered sheet pan. You can spritz the rounds with equal parts vinegar and water to create a crust, which helps hold them together. Let dry for at least four hours or overnight.
6. Place the dried fizzies in a sealable glass jar and keep next to your commode. The next time things get smelly, after flushing, drop in a tablet and you’ll love how things freshen up in no time.
sea salt is a best cleanser and remove the fowl smell . even it also radiate positive vibrations in our home also.. scientifically proven.
make it as simple as Baking Soda and Vinegar or baking soda with lemon juice / I keep the skin of the lemon when I squeeze it and use it instead of a sponge with BS ....it does miracles .....good for the environment as well.
I find that using natural cleaning methods like this on a toilet is smarter then using most other cleaning chemicals. Beyond the benefits to the bathroom, you'll also find that using natural cleaning methods will help your septic tank to stay in good shape for longer. I've lived in the same house for ten years now without any problems. While this is only anecdotal I feel pretty convinced that I am right. http://septicandwater.com/Septic_System_Pumping_and_Repair.html
It seems my toilet gets clogged all the time. I don't like using harsh chemicals, so this is the perfect solution! It's so cool that it is all natural. Plus, I already have these things lying around the house! Now, I can clean my toilet whenever I want.
Thank you so much for this recipe on how to help clean my toilet. Will these tablets clean the pipes that the toilet is connected to? That would be extremely nice because that way it would clean the pipes leading to the septic tank! I will have to try this out and see if it works! Thanks again!
Not long i love diy projects so about half hour to do one cup measure i only had that much citric acid or i would have made more.
Simple is Clorox spray, very easy and no need to rub and clean the toilet. It's just keep everything clean like new.
That seems cool to think that it can clean as well as provide a fresh scent. It makes me wonder if the cleaning could go all the way down the pipes to the septic tank, or if it only cleans a short distance. We have had a tank in the past, and keeping it clean seemed like a good idea. http://www.aaacesspool.com
