DIY Toilet Bowl Cleaner

Whenever I’m at somebody else’s house, the first thing I zero in on is the bathroom. What can I say, a lack of mold in the corners and a sparkling clean toilet make me feel safe and comfortable. After all, this means that my hosts are careful and responsible. As for me, I also try to keep the bathroom neat and orderly. To do this, I use a DIY toilet bowl cleaner.

Previously, I used to clean the toilet every other day. However, recently my mom shared know-how that made my life much easier. The Chinese way of maintaining cleanliness in the bathroom is a gift that keeps on giving. You’ll surely appreciate it, as well!

DIY Toilet Bowl Cleaner

To make an eco-friendly and perfectly safe toilet bowl cleaner, you will need the following supplies: baking soda, mint tooth powder, and dry bleach. Because the latter has corrosive nature, you should be wearing gloves to protect yourself.

To begin with, mix baking soda, mint tooth powder, and dry bleach, a tablespoonful of each, in a bowl. Transfer the mixture into a thick plastic bag.

Tie the bag with a tight knot and smooth out the mixture inside it. Now comes the fun part. Using a needle, make several punctures in the part of the bag where the mixture sits; 6-8 small holes will be enough.

This bag will last for about 3-4 days. Of course, it all depends on how often the toilet is used.


Before you install the bag with the DIY toilet bowl cleaner, thoroughly wash the toilet. Carefully slide the toilet tank cover to the side and lower the bag with the cleaner in the water, leaving only its very top on the outside.

Next, slide the cover back into place, ensuring that it sits right on the top of the bag. Done! Not only does the soapy water from the toilet tank gently clean the surface of the toilet bowl, but it also fills the room with a refreshing mint aroma. Furthermore, it leaves an invisible film on the surface, which protects the toilet from contamination.

Get a fresh smelling and clean bathroom in no time with this borderline genius cleaning hack that will save you so much time and effort! How do you keep your bathroom clean? Please share your secrets in the comments, as we’d love to know!


I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.

never found any interesting article like yours.
It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters
and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

No matter if some one searches for his necessary thing, thus he/she wishes to be available that
in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over

I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a
blog that’s both educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
The problem is an issue that not enough people are speaking intelligently about.

I’m very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
