These DIY fizzy toilet bombs will clean your bathroom in no time

Pretty Providence

Bath bombs are the best way to get clean and enjoy some luxury at the end of a long day, but you know who else could use some TLC? Your commode.

That’s right. Your toilet has been through the ringer and could certainly use some cleaning, but before you reach for the potent Clorox or strong-smelling store cleansers, try this DIY method for the brightest, whitest toilet you’ve ever seen.

With just five simple ingredients, you can make a fizzy toilet-cleaning bomb that will clean and deodorize your porcelain throne without the use of any harsh chemicals. You can make your “bombs” in any shape you like thanks to the use of candy molds, or you can simply make them into balls.

In order to make these DIY toilet bombs, you’ll need vinegar, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and citric acid. You can find citric acid in your grocery store, specialty baking store or online. The citric acid is what makes the toilet bombs fizz, and it will also help clean and purify your bowl.


You can add essential oils to your mixture to make your toilet bomb smell sweet. Lavender, lemon, peppermint, grapefruit and orange are all good bets. If you’re sensitive to fragrance, you can skip this step.

You can even color your toilet bombs a pretty hue. At Get Green Be Well, fizzy toilet bombs are colored with natural mica. You can find an array of natural mica colors on Amazon, or at your favorite craft store.


These colorful powders are all-natural, as they’re made from ground-up mica stones. You can opt to choose a color that matches your bathroom decor so you can put your beautiful bombs in a mason jar near your toilet. Then, whenever your throne needs some freshening up, it’ll be easy to just grab one and toss it into the bowl. Who knew cleaning a toilet could feel so glam?
