I made my first batch of fizzies bombs this month to compliment my new cleaning routine of our toilets (alongside the thieves all purpose cleaner). Yes these are fizzie bombs for the toilets not for in my bath!
These are tossed in our toilets every evening for my daily morning scrub (it literally fizzes the gunk from the toilet bowl, I know gross and of course no one has so much gunk you can see it come off, but just imagine it) or when it needs to smell a bit nicer in between, I have 2 teenagers after all …
They are super easy to make, cheaper than the ones you can buy in the store and who doesn’t want a natural alternative to clean their home!
I mean seriously products with skulls, flames or that state you need to call your doctor if you drink, inhale or get this in your eyes is just not ok….
All the ingredients that are used for the toilet fizzies are regularly used in the kitchen although I would not eat hem in this particular state 😉
Misting spray bottle (which is a better option than just pouring it in there trust me on this)
Silicon mold (cute shape is optional)
Latex gloves and mask (optional)
100 grams Citric Acid (NL = Citroenzuur)
50 grams Baking Soda (NL = Sodium Bicarbonaat)
30 drops of Young Living Essential oils (3 kinds; I used Thieves, Lemon and Peppermint for this batch)
water (in the misting spray bottle)
Mix the 2 powders with a mixer
Add your choice of YL Essential Oils and mix again
Slowly spray the mix whilst mixing until it has the consistency of wet sand
When the mixture has the right consistency add it to the mold shapes, press firmly to get the air out and keep adding to the shape until a bit under the rim
Leave to dry for 6 hours.
My personal tips :
Don’t fill the molds to the rim as it does swell up a bit whilst drying (trust me on this)
I recommend firmly pressing again the mixture again after 30 min.
They are fun to make in different shapes, I made 2 batches so I would have enough to fill the mold.
