{FREEBIE} Toilet Fizzies …

25 Mar

I’ve been having fun experimenting with natural cleaning options and, because I have a 10 year old son, wanted something that would work for those ‘in-between days’ for the toilet bowl. I discovered toilet fizzies and let me tell you, not only are they fun for your children to drop into the loo, they are also a great option for freshening it up on those days you don’t have time to do a full scrub.

Here’s the recipe I used:

1/2 cup Bi-carb Soda
1/4 cup Citric Acid
15 ml Eucalyptus essential oil.

Method:
Mix the Bi-carb soda and citric acid together in a bowl (a face mask might be a good option too) and try to get rid of any lumps.
Slowly add the essential oil whilst sirring. If you add it too fast it will fizz up and you don’t want that at this stage.
Your mixture should be able to hold together when you squeeze it tightly.
Tightly pack the mixture into small moulds – I used a chocolate mould – and leave to dry overnight.
In the morning pop out of the mould and store in an airtight jar.

To use the fizzies drop one into the bowl of your toilet and allow to fizz. Once it’s stopped fizzing give the bowl a quick scrub with your toilet brush and you’re ready to go. No need to flush until the next use and that will keep the fresh smell lingering smile emoticon

I used Eucalyptus oil because I use it in a lot of my cleaning and had it to hand, but you could you use any essential oil and even blend combinations (probably not use more than 18ml total in this recipe though as you don’t want to get it too wet).

When you’ve made yours why not label up your jar with these free labels that I’ve created just for you.

Please make sure you keep these safe from little hands as they should not be eaten!

You can find Bi-carb Soda and Citric Acid in the baking section of the supermarket. Eucalyptus oil I get from the medicines section of the supermarket.
