DIY Fizzy Cleaning Bombs // Organic Home

I love a good DIY... especially when it comes to making my own natural cleaning products. When I came across this awesome DIY at Garden Therapy, I knew I had to share! These fizzy cleaning bombs are an effective and safe way to quickly and easily clean up toilets, drains, and garbage disposals. Just pop one of these babies in the drain and it will fizz away any grease, buildup, and stinky odors that may be lingering. They contain all-natural ingredients so you don’t need to worry about coming into contact with harsh chemicals that most store-bought household cleaners contain, and they are packaging-free which means no environmentally damaging waste. Oh, and did I mention how much FUN these are to use?

DIY Cleaning Bombs

Spray bottle
Diluted castile soap
Essential oils of your preference (see some suggestions at the end of the recipe)
1 cup citric acid
2 cups baking soda

Add the baking soda and citric acid to a bowl and mix together with your hands. Add about 20 drops of essential oil, mixing that in with your hands as well.

Dilute the castile soap by adding one part soap to four parts water inside the spray bottle. Spray the solution lightly onto the top of the powder mixture, mixing it in quickly with your hands as you spritz.

Continue to spray the solution and mix it in until the powder mixture packs together easily in your hands like a snowball. Be careful not to spray too much liquid or the mixture will begin to fizz.

Roll the mixture into teaspoon-sized balls in your hands. Lay the balls out on a piece of parchment paper and allow them to dry until they feel firm. This will take up to 24 hours.

Store them in a glass jar and pop one out when you need to refresh your bath, sink, or toilet. Simply toss one down the drain with a little water or into the toilet bowl and watch as it fizzes away, leaving the drain or toilet clean and fresh smelling.
