Drop This in Your Toilet to Kill Bacteria and Eliminate Odors – NO Scrubbing Required

Toilet bombs are actually a really innovative solution which will help you destroy bacteria, and deodorize the toilet. All you need to do is to drop one of them into the toilet bowl, and it will start working right away.

For approximately 24 bombs, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 30 drops Lemon Essential Oil
  • 30 drops Lavender Essential Oil
  • 30 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
  • 1/2 cup Citric Acid

-1 1/3 cup Baking Soda Baking soda is an incredibly effective cleaning product, which also eliminates bad smell. On the other hand, citric acid is a low-strength acid which is naturally found in oranges and lemons, and it often included in various whitening, cleaning, and deodorizing products.

Essential oils provide amazing, pleasant smells, which, especially if combined in this way, but they also have potent antimicrobial properties.


Make sure you wear a medical mask while preparing the toilet bombs. Next, you should combine baking soda and the citric acid.

In a spray bottle, mix the essential oils, and spray a bit, while stirring slowly, in order not to let it fizz away. If not damp enough, you can add a bit of water in the bottle.

Yet, always be cautious, as excess moisture will make the citric acid fizz and the bombs will not explode when you will use them. Next, place the mixture in silicone molds, and leave them to dry for 6 hours.

Afterward, store the bombs in some container, with a lid.


As we mentioned, all you need to drop is to drop a bomb prepared in this way into the toilet bowl, and stand back! It will not explode, of course, but it will fizz a lot, leaving the toilet completely clean, and smelling nice.
