Homemade Toilet Bowl Cleaner

This recipe comes to us from Jess at Mom4Real.com. She is my hero in the cleaning department. Boy does she ever have some great recipes, and this one is especially good. Thank you Jess.

Homemade Toilet Bowl Cleaner

Once made, this is a great toilet bowl cleaner.


  • 1/2 Cup of Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Cup of liquid Castile Soap
  • 15 Drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil
  • 15 Drops of Lemon Essential Oil
  • 1 Cup of Water
  • Old Toilet Bowl Cleaner Container or Plastic Bottle with Lid


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl and whisk together well.
  2. Use a funnel to transfer the ingredients to a bottle.
  3. Squirt or pour a generous amount into your toilet bowl…about 1/4 cup.
  4. Use a toilet scrub brush or sponge to spread the toilet cleaner around the inside of your bowl, and scrub under the rim and the entire inside of your toilet bowl. Once you are finished, simply flush the toilet to rinse! Your toilet should be fresh, clean and deodorized.

Recipe Notes

I recommend using this method at least once every two weeks and using my Toilet cleaning bombs in between deep cleanings.
