These freshening toilet bombs are on a budget and effective solution to eliminate the unpleasant odors in the toilet, giving a refreshing smell to the whole bath.
– 1 cup of baking soda
– 6 tablespoons of lemon juice
– 1 ½ tablespoons of white vinegar
– 1 ½ tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide
– 2 tablespoons of essential tea tree oil
First, you need a medium-sized bowl to mix all the ingredients.
Put the baking soda in the bowl first.
Then add lemon juice. Citric acid has cleansing properties and is very useful in disinfecting.
The next step is very simple: add white vinegar. This compound immediately disinfects and neutralizes unpleasant odors.
The purpose is to mix all the ingredients to form a thick paste, so you can model it.
Now you need to add hydrogen peroxide. You have to be very careful and pour it little by little, because it can cause a splashing reaction.
Finally, add the essential oil. In this case, we will use essential tea tree oil because of its disinfecting and antimicrobial properties. But you can choose any essential oil you want.
Once you have mixed all the ingredients, you have two options:
Use a measuring spoon to form pills.
Use some shapes to get more interesting shapes, such as stars or hearts.
After shaping your toilet bombs, let them dry overnight to maintain their shape.
After they have dried, the odorous pills are ready to be used.
All you have to do is put one in the toilet and flush. You will immediately notice the pleasant and fresh odor that is emitted when the released compounds begin to work. The effect of the smell pills is maintained for up to 3 days.
