Like most commercial cleaners, toilet bowl deodorizers often contain chemicals considered unsafe for people and the environment. If you are looking for a safer way to keep your toilet bright and fresh, try a natural alternative. A homemade deodorizer applied to your toilet bowl is highly effective. Best of all, many ingredients used to mix the cleaner may already be in your pantry.
Pour 2 cups of water into a small pitcher. Add 2 tbsp. of baking soda to the water.
Stir the water and baking soda with a plastic or wooden spoon to combine. Add 2 tbsp. of vinegar to the water and baking soda. Adding the vinegar will cause the toilet bowl deodorizer to foam slightly.
Add 1 tsp. of your favorite essential oil to the mixture and stir to combine. Pour the toilet bowl deodorizer into 12-oz. spray bottle.
Spray the mixture onto the inside of your toilet bowl. Allow the toilet bowl deodorizer to sit for at least 20 minutes.
Scrub the toilet bowl with a toilet brush. Flush the toilet bowl to remove any debris loosened by the scrubbing. Repeat whenever necessary.
