Is it teething time for your little one?


The toilet isn’t exactly the nicest part of the house, and giving it a full power-clean takes time. For those in-between days, when you just need to freshen the loo up, these super-cheap and easy-to-make toilet pods will come in handy.


What you will need:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • ¼ cup citric acid
  • 1 tbsp washing-up liquid
  • Essential oil (optional)
  • Bowl
  • Spoon
  • Ice cube tray



What to do:

  1. Take your baking soda and citric acid, pop them in the bowl and stir them together.
  2. Next, add in the washing-up liquid and mix it all together until your concoction turns damp and crumbly.
  3. If you would like to give your bombs a scent, add in a few drops of essential oil.
  4. Add spoonfuls of the mixture to each section of your ice cube tray, and pack them in tightly.
  5. Leave to dry for a few hours, then pop them out and store them in a container.
  6. Simply drop a pod into the toilet, let it fizz and totally disintegrate, then flush it away.
