This fizzing powder is a natural toilet cleaner that will leave your toilet sparkling without a lot of scrubbing. Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is a mild abrasive. In addition, when baking soda and citric acid are combined with water they react and release carbon dioxide bubbles, which may enhance the scrubbing effect. Also, as a weak alkali, baking soda neutralizes acids in odor molecules to eliminate strong smells. Besides that, the peppermint and lemon essential oils add a clean, fresh fragrance.

Here’s The Fizzing Toilet Powder Recipe


1 1/2 cups baking soda

1/3 cup citric acid

10 drops lemon essential oil

10 drops peppermint essential oil


Simply combine all ingredients and store in a glass mason jar. Add powder to the toilet, allow to fizz and soak. Finally, gently scrub with a toilet brush to remove stubborn stains and flush.
