Toilet bombs… This whole post is really funny for me to write because the bathrooms in a home with three boys?! Yeah, let’s just say I know all about bombs in the toilet, pee on the floor, that funky odor that smells like a train station urinal, the shreds of toilet paper on the floor. Yep, I know ALL about toilet bombs.
I’ve seriously thought about tell the boys to just pee outside on a tree, but I have a feeling the neighbors won’t like that. But I’ve been desperate. When you live with that gross urine smell in your bathroom, you’ll do anything to get rid of it.
Well, thankfully I found it with these Homemade Toilet Bombs. It’s made with baking soda (helps to gently clean and whiten), hydrogen peroxide (helps to naturally sanitize), citric acid (helps to get rid of dirt/grime and helps with hard water spots), and essential oils for a naturally clean scent.
My Bathroom Cleaning Routine
First, spray down the toilet and the tile around the toilet (even the walls and cabinets) with Thieves Household Cleaner. I then clean the toilet lid, seat, and pretty much every area except in the toilet bowl itself. Thieves Household Cleaner gently cleans and can get rid of the smell without harsh chemicals.
Then, use these Homemade Toilet Bombs in the bowl itself. It will replace those toxic toilet bowl cleaners and clean just as well (if not better).
Finally, I spray down the toilet and the bathroom with this DIY Air Freshener. Purification essential oil blend is one of my favorites in this air freshener recipe, as well as Lemon and Lavender essential oils mixed together.
Okay, are you ready to get that funky odor out of your bathroom? Here’s how you can make these Homemade Toilet Bombs.
Homemade Toilet Bomb Fizzies
- 2 cups baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 2 tbsp hydrogen peroxide
- 15 drops essential oils (where to buy), such as Thieves, Purification, Tea Tree, Lemongrass or Peppermint (I really love 10 drops Lemongrass + 5 drops Peppermint together or if you’re going for simple try 15 drops of Purification)
- Silicone mold or sheet pan and parchment paper
- In a large bowl, mix baking soda and citric acid ingredients together well.
- Very slowly (a few drops at a time) add hydrogen peroxide to baking soda/citric acid mixture. Mix well as you continue to add hydrogen peroxide. You may notice some fizzing – just keep stirring. (Note: Don’t dump the hydrogen peroxide all at once as it will activate the baking soda and citric acid. It’s important to stir it in very slowly.)
- Slowly add essential oils to mixture and keep mixing well as you add the essential oils.
- Test mixture. You should be able to clump it together to mold. It shouldn’t be too wet or too dry. If it’s too dry, add a couple of drops of hydrogen peroxide.
- Fill a silicone mold with mixture OR form small balls (about the size of Brussel sprouts) with your hands and place on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper (to avoid sticking).
- Allow molds to air dry – about 6-8 hours. Then transfer to a glass jar and store in the bathroom.
How to Use
These Homemade Toilet Bomb Fizzies are really easy to use. Simply take 1-2 toilet bombs and drop it directly into the toilet. The toilet bombs will fizz as the baking soda and citric acid react together in the water. Use a toilet brush to gently scrub all surfaces inside the toilet.

Take the quiz above and see if you got the correct answer!
In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.
If you or a loved one is suffering from a debilitating condition-and you"re not sure what the culprit is-now's the time to find out...while you can still do something about it!

5) Turmeric is amazing. The problem is - It's hard to absorb!
6) Wonder why your stomach still sticks out even though you're hammering the core exercises every day? It's a common myth that bulging belly is due to weak abdominal muscles.
7) Even if you're the most active of athletes, you may still suffer from tight hip flexors due to the amount of time you spend each day planted to a chair.
Enjoy! Let me know how these work out for you. And if you run across anything I've missed please let me know.
