  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup citric acid
  • 1 tablespoon Dr. Bronner's Sals Suds
  • 1 teaspoon hydrogen peroxide
  • 25 drops essential oils I recommend peppermint and lavender


  • In a large glass bowl, whisk baking soda and citric acid together until blended. Very slowly, add sals suds, hydrogen peroxide and essential oils, mixing slowly as you go to ensure you don't activate the dry ingredients).  
  • The mixture should be dry enough that you can mold it into balls, but wet enough that it doesn't fall apart. 
  • Fill a silicone mold with cleaning mixture, or you can form small balls (about the size of golf balls) with your hands and place on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper to avoid sticking.
  • Allow the toilet bombs to air dry, about 6-8 hours or overnight. Transfer to a glass jar and store in the bathroom.


This is the silicone mold I used.
I place these in the bowl of my toilet every 5-10 flushes to keep the toilet bowl clean and smelling great!
