Toilet bowl cleaner was the last thing I began making in terms of cleaning products. I just couldn’t find a recipe I thought would work or that I would like. Toilets, in my mind seemed the dirtiest and I couldn’t wrap my head around how a DIY cleaner would do a good job at cleaning them.
So silly how we’ve been in a society of chemicals for so long that our minds don’t allow us to believe that anything but a chemical can do the job we want!
Let me tell you about this cleaner because if you are like I was and unsure if you can trust a homemade cleaning product to get the results you want, this recipe will change your mind.
Not only does it smell amazing but it gets the dirtiest of toilets clean. The best part is that you can leave it within arms reach of your kids and not be worried AT ALL about them touching it. I have a bucket of cleaning supplies that I carry from room to room as I clean and when I was buying the chemical laden toilet bowl cleaners I was constantly worried about Ezekiel getting into the toilet bowl cleaner. Now I let him squeeze the cleaner into the toilet himself!
So without further ado!
What you will need:
- A squeeze bottle (I use a plastic bottle that was once dish soap)
- 1/4 cup Baking Soda
- 1-2 Tbsp Dr.Bronners Castile Soap (I use unscented)
- 15-20 drops Young Living Purification essential oil (or any oil you’d like but I LOVE this one for this recipe)
- Water to fill container
What to do:
- Using a funnel add each ingredient into the bottle in order listed.
- Shake to mix and use as you would any other toilet bowl cleaner!
I like to put this in the toilet when I start to clean and let it sit. I always clean the toilet last and the smell will linger for a bit after your done.
Let me know if you try this and how you like it!
