Mix the baking soda and citric acid together in a small bowl. The next step is to add the water and essential oils to the mixture. To minimize the fizzing action, use a small spray bottlethat produces a fine mist.
Gently mist and stir the dry mixture until all of the oils have been added. Test the mixture at this point by squeezing some in your fist. If it isn’t clumping very well, put a little more water in the spray bottle and wet it down some more, but just until it can form a good clump in your hand.
Then, pour the mixture into yoursilicone mold of choice, and pack each cell down firmly.
Allow the bombs to dry for several hours, then remove them gently from the mold and they’re ready to use!
These tabs are made using 3 simple ingredients that all have natural cleaning and deodorizing power:
Baking soda – a mild abrasive that neutralizes acids and deodorizes.Citric acid – helps dissolve hard water stains, and provides the “fizzy” effect by reacting with the baking soda and oils.Essential oils: lavender, lemon, and peppermint essential oils – help eliminate germs and bacteria, and leave behind a fresh, clean scent.
Simply drop one of the tablets into your toilet bowl and watch the tab fizz away, leaving it fresh and clean!
