These little toilet bombs are easy to make with only a few ingredients and not much effort. Perfect for freshening up the bathroom.
When I saw this idea I had to try it. They are like bath fizzes for the toilet. Some say they are considered cleaning tablets, but I think of them more as a freshener for the toilet. Something you would add mid-week or maybe every three days when you just don’t have time to thoroughly clean.

Toilet Bomb Supplies
- 2 cups Baking Soda
- 1/2 cup Citric Acid
- 2 teaspoons Essential Oils – I used eucalyptus and lavender but you can use any you like
- Spray bottle with water
- Silicone molds or ice cube trays
How to Make Toilet Bombs
- Combine baking soda and citric acid in a large bowl, mix well.
- Stir in essential oils.
- Spray water over the mixture and stir.
- Continue spraying water and stirring until you can grab some of the mixture and form a shape.
Press into ice cube trays or molds of your choice.
Let dry overnight and then pop them out of the molds.
How to Use Toilet Cleaner Bombs
- Depending on the size you make place one or two of the bombs in the toilet bowl.
- Let them sit and fizz up.
- Then flush.
The baking soda helps to absorb odor and the essential oils provide a nice scent.
This amount of toilet cleaner bomb filled two trays giving me 4 dozen cubes.
This is not a replacement for normal toilet bowl cleaning but does help with freshening the toilet.
NOTE: You may want to use old ice cube trays for this or leave out the essential oils. I noticed that my molds still smell like eucalyptus even after washing.
Place the toilet bombs in a pretty container and set it on the back of the toilet or somewhere in the bathroom for easy access.
