How to make effervescent tablets to clean the toilet

At home we are surrounded by products with ingredients that on many occasions have proven to be very harmful to our health . What if we substitute these products for more natural ones?

The products with the greatest risks to our health and that of the environment are usually those used to clean, they are very aggressive and we also use them frequently.

These homemade effervescent tablets are an alternative, they do not harm our health, they clean in depth, they are very easy to prepare, they are cheap and ecological.

You need:

  • 200 g of baking soda
  • 85 g of citric acid powder (you can find it in herbalists, parapharmacies, online)
  • 45 drops of lemon essential oil
  • 40 drops of peppermint essential oil
  • 40 drops of lavender essential oil

How to make effervescent tablets

  1. In a bowl mix the bicarbonate and citric acid
  2. In a spray can mix all the essential oils and spray this mixture on the bowl of bicarbonate and citric acid, making sure that it is well distributed.
  3. The mixture should not be too wet because the tablets will lose their effervescent effect.
  4. Finally, we put the mixture in the molds and leave them for several hours to dry.
  5. Unmold and they are ready to be used.

I recommend that you keep them in a hermetically sealed bottle or similar so that we help maintain all their aroma for as long as possible.

To use the effervescent tablets you simply have to put one in the toilet when you want to keep it clean, without lime and with a good smell.

Toxic products such as bleach, detergents or ammonia could be substituted for these tablets. If you want to know more tips to clean the bathroom with organic and homemade products, click here .

In addition to getting a deep cleaning in the bathroom with these effervescent tablets, since the essential oils that we use have antiseptic and antimicrobial properties, they also remove lime and have a very pleasant smell.

Another use that we can give to the tablets is as air freshener , you can place one or two on a shelf in the bathroom and thus get a pleasant clean smell.

They can also be used for the dishwasher . If you have a dishwasher you simply have to place the tablet in the space for the detergent and use as you normally do.
