Since I began using essential oils a few years ago, I am always looking for fun things to make to help my house stay cleaner! Not long ago I stumbled across Toilet Fizzies as a way of keeping your toilet smelling fresh and clean in between cleanings. But most the recipes I found used like 10 ingredients and I don’t know about you, but I’m a big fan of less is more. I tried a few different ones and finally found this one! I made a few tweaks to it, but what I like the most is it is easy to make, doesn’t take much time, and kills germs with the Tea Tree Oil while smelling great thanks to the Grapefruit and Lemon!
1 1/3 Cup Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Citric Acid
30 Drops Grapefruit Essential Oil
20 Drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
20 Drops Lemon Essential Oil
Food Dye (optional)
Mix the dry ingredients first. I personally mixed everything in a gallon sized zip lock bag. Slowly add in the essential oils a few drops at a time. If you pour them all in at once, it will fizz a lot and you will have a hard time getting it to stick together. If the mixture is too dry after adding all the oils, you can put a tad bit of water in. Once you are done mixing, put the mixture into silicone molds. You can let them sit out and dry for 24 hours, or bake in the oven on low heat 200, for about 1-2 hours. Pop them out once they are firm and store in a bag or a Mason Jar is my favorite! Drop them in the toilet for a fresh smell in between cleanings!
