Natural Toilet Fizzies

Toilet Fizzy Bombs

I’m always trying to find ways to keep my house clean and smelling good, with minimal work.

I’m not lazy by any means, but my unofficial motto in life is “work smarter, not harder”.

My schedule is way too busy to clean everything in my house everyday, so I do my best to find short cuts to help me out.

I especially don’t like having to clean 3 bathrooms. I’m not sure if it’s because there’s so much preparation with cleaning the bathroom.

You need your gloves, toilet cleaners, toilet scrubber, glass cleaner, disinfectants, and whatever else you use to get a shiny clean bathroom.

I found a way to keep my toilet bowls cleaner and to combat those ugly yellow water stains.

These toilet fizzy bombs work perfectly and are super simple to make.

Natural Toilet Fizzies

I really like these toilet fizzies because all of the ingredients to make them can be found around the home or easily in a local super market.

There are no harsh smells or chemical residue left in the toilet after its use.

I’ve been using more natural cleaners around my home because I want to do my part for the environment and keeping my family as chemical-free as possible.

Natural toilet fizzies bombs don’t require much cleanup when they’re made and they can easily be stored in an airtight container for a couple of months.

    1. Hi, Karen! It’s a detergent booster/house cleaner you can buy from the grocery store in the detergent aisle for a couple of dollars.

        1. Hi, Susan! Yes, it’s called super washing soda. You should be able to find it in the laundry detergent aisle at Walmart. I usedan the Arm and Hammer brand.

  6. Cleaning the toilet always creeps me out and I have to do it often with our hard water so these would be awesome to keep on hand.

  7. You say you throw one in every few uses. About how many do you use in a day? Let’s use a day that you are home all day rather than a work day.

    1. Hi, Kristi! I use, at most, 2 per day. I have a baby in diapers and one in Pull Ups, so my toilet doesn’t see as much traffic as someone with older kids or more family members in the household. I hope that helps. P.S. I work from home, so I’m always home. Lol

  8. I never heard of washing soda-what is it? would love to try this

    1. Hi, Laura! It’s a detergent booster/household cleaner that you can get in the laundry detergent aisle for a couple of dollars.

        1. Shirley, I’m not sure about using borax for this formula. I’ve only used borax in my diy laundry detergent and toilet cleaner, but they were in gel form.

  9. I really like this idea, thanks for sharing it.

  10. I love this idea. I have a whole box of the candy molds I use with candle wax for tarts. Now I will be using them to make seasonal toilet tarts.

  11. You put them in the tank, not in the bowl, correct? And you do that a couple times a day?

    1. Hi, Robin! That’s correct. I put them in the tank. I do it about twice a day, depending on how much traffic the toilet is getting.


    1. Hi, Karen! You can get citric acid at Wal-Mart year round in the canning section next to the mason jars. I leave mine in a container with a lid. I’ve never left them uncovered, so I’m not sure if they would lose strength or not.

  13. Hello- I love these, I was wondering if I could also use Castile soap with this recipe as well? If so, how much would you recommend using? Also, why did you add corn starch, is it for molding purposes? Thanks for sharing!!!

    1. Hi, Arley! I’ve never used Castile soap, so I’m not sure if it would work. The cornstarch is to help hold the bombs together.

  14. Love it Love it Love it !!!! Can’t wait to make some of these. Thank you so much.

  15. Instead of super washing soda, can I use Borax?

  16. I just got done making this, I added a little bit of yellow food coloring. How long should I leave them in the molds? I made some different ones with vinegar and hydrogen peroxide.

  17. I love this idea. I made some last night and let it set overnight. I put it in my jar but a couple hours it stuck together. Do you know why it would do that?

    1. Hello, Analiza! I’m not sure why it stuck together. The only thing I figure is that there was still a little moisture some where.

  18. Love this idea! Made them today but think I need to spray more water initially to bind them as after two hours they crumbled coming out of the mold. Are they supposed to be so fragile? I used a mini muffin tin with muffin cups but they still crumble. Any suggestions, like adding more cornstarch?

    1. Hi, Penny! Try pressing them into the mold more firmly next time. They shouldn’t crumble if it’s compacted enough.


  20. The Hometalk comments included one that said cornstarch will not dissolve and stays in the tank and can cause problems. Could be wrong or could be right. Don’t know but thought it was worth a mention.

  21. These are amazing. I tried this recipe over a year ago and I’ve been making them ever since. Citric acid is available on Amazon very reasonably. I love how these clean, deodorize and disinfect, depending on your blend of essential oils.
    Thank you

  22. TEXASGALSTOO – I personally went / & still searching for some if the best HomeMade TOILET BOWL BOMBS. LUV YOUR TANK IDEA. (only worry is they would disolve super quickly & I want the smell for people after they do the more poody.thing) but will try these I thing I want to add some bleach/ will let you know how that turns out though. ARM & HAMMER Super Washing Soda (power agent like OXI-Clean) I found on the very bottom shelf with a Kroger store brand too. ($5.Off.If you go to there website&print)
    Had to add as I’m looking for a list of great bloggers for my highlighted list as awesome experts on homemade items. So tired of wasting money on things we can do ourselves!
    Thank you TEXASGALSTOO

  23. I am having trouble making these correctly. Maybe adding too much water. By the time I add enough water to get the material to hold together, when I put them in the mold – they start to expand, a lot – maybe double in size. I don’t mind that they’re not a great shape, but then they don’t fizz in the toilet. Can you give me some pointers?

    1. Hi, Tracey! Are you using a spray bottle? That way you can add water a little at a time. There shouldn’t be any expansion at all.

    1. Hi, Shirley! I don’t have a septic tank so I’m not sure.

  24. Hi,
    Thank you for sharing this what a great idea. I started making these and the first batch came out perfect. However, batch 2 and 3 came out of the mold all crumbs. I’m confused how I could have no problem with the first batch and bad luck going forward. Could you please help me I would like to make more to pass to friends and family. Could it be possible that the silicon mold only works once should I buy a different mold? I appreciate any help you can give I am so frustrated.
    Thank you

    1. Hi, Margo! I’m not sure why the other batches didn’t work. I’ve used the same mold several times. Is your mold completely clean and dry before you start the next batch?

  25. I am looking forward to try this cleaning option.
    I certainly appreciate you sharing. Thank you.

  26. Love this idea and I have time to make them. Did you use candy molds for the bombs?

    1. Hi, Jeanne! Yes, I used peppermint candy molds for these, but you can also use silicon molds.

  27. Hi Kendra, I have just gone through this article & I really like this because it makes the toilet cleaning task very easy and smarter. I think this article will be very beneficiary for the visitors who want to clean the toilet fizzy in a smart way.

  28. Aloha,
    I clean several homes on a regularly. I like the idea of dropping a bomb in the toilets With three toilets that’s alot of scrubbing. My question, how big do I needto make the bombs? What size mold should I buy? I plan to make a lot to leave in clients bathrooms.
