Although inevitable, cleaning the toilet is one of the most unpleasant tasks. Here’s a tip to help you clean your toilet in an easy and effective way by use of baking soda.
These little balls made from natural products, that you can prepare will clean your toilet in no time. Moreover, Jess Kielman, author of the Mom 4 Real website, is probably right when saying that the only kind of toilet cleaning that she would do is the one which does not require too much effort. So she actually invented these so called Toilet Cleaning Bombs.
Here’s the recipe!
You will need:
- 1 and ½ cup baking soda
- 30 drops of lemon essential oil
- 30 drops of lavender essential oil
- 30 drops of peppermint essential oil
- 1 glass of lemon juice
- 1 sprayer
- 1 ice cube tray
Mix all ingredients except the water. Then, take a small amount of the mixture and make a ball, then gradually spray a little water to make it consistent. Take an ice cube tray and fill its blocks with the mixture. Let them cool throughout the night, and then store these balls in a glass jar.
Each week, place 1 or 2 baking soda balls in your toilet bowl and leave for about 30 minutes. Then, using a brush, scrub the toilet and rinse.
