We will all agree that there is nothing more unpleasant than cleaning the toilet. But, a clean toilet keeps the entire household healthy so it’s very important to have your toilet perfectly clean and fresh-smelling. The good news is you can prepare your own homemade toilet cleaner that will eliminate all germs and bacteria and also provide fresh smell!
- 160 g of baking soda
- 60 ml of lemon juice
- 1/2 a tablespoon of vinegar
- 1 tablespoon of Hydrogen peroxide (3 %, from the pharmacy)
- 15-20 drops of fragrant oil
Put the baking soda in a bowl and pour in the lemon juice.
Then, combine the hydrogen peroxide and vinegar in a small container. Add drop by drop of this mixture in the baking soda mixture. Finally, add fragrant oil of your choice.
Create half-ball shapes using a spoon and put them on some baking paper to dry. You can also add a mixture of even parts of water and vinegar to the toilet bowl if you want. This will keep the tabs together since it forms a hard crust around them.
The toiled tabs need at least 4 hours to dry, but it`s recommended that you leave them overnight. Keep them in an air-tight glass jar near your toilet as soon as they are completely dry.
As soon as you notice that the toilet is less than fresh smelling, put another tab.
Preparing these tabs may take a bit of time but all the ingredients are inexpensive and easily available. They are also much better for the environment than the commercial toilet cleaning products which contain numerous chemicals. Enjoy your refreshed toilet!
