DIY Toilet Bowl Cleaner

This nifty homemade toilet bowl cleaner is a great way to naturally leave your bathroom spotless and scented. What you need: ½ cup baking soda, white vinegar, tea tree or lemon essential oil and a toilet bowl brush. We recommend using a mask while you carry out the instructions as baking soda is effervescent and might cause a coughing fit.


  1. Pour the baking soda in the toilet bowl, make sure you line the sides too
  2. Put a few drops of essential oil (of your choice) on the sides of the toilet bowl
  3. Now slowly add the vinegar and the effervescence will begin
  4. While still effervescent, use your toilet brush to clean
