I decided to try the toilet cleaning bombs because I have the ingredients and we have stopped buying toilet blocks because they contain plastic! I got together my supplies and started combining the dry ingredients in my bowl.
The two main ingredients are baking soda and citric acid. I combined these two in the bowl and whisked them together to get rid of any lumps.
Then you can add some essential oils. The recipe called for lemon, tea tree and mint but I don’t have mint so I replaced it with eucalyptus.
When the mixture if ready, you can grab an ice cube tray and press the mixture down into the squares. After that you let it dry for at least 6 hours, but I let it dry overnight.
I store them in this glass bowl that I thrifted at a flea market!
It didn’t fizz as much as I expected it too but it definitely did something.
Afterwards I used the toilet brush to go through the bowl again and it definitely cleaned but it wasn’t as harsh as expected and it didn’t really get it completely clean. I do think that if you use one every week then it would keep the toilet clean!

I never realized these cleaners had plastic in them so I definitely won't repurchase them. I'll give these DIY ones a go!
Oooh I love DIY's and this one is so easy!
