Transitioning to using essential oils for all of my cleaning products has made it safe for my children to help with cleaning. I am always looking for ways to encourage my kids to clean in a safe and effective way so when I realized I could make a little science experiment out of cleaning the toilet, I knew I had struck gold.

All you need is 1/2 cup baking soda, 1 cup vinegar, and 2 drops each lemon and melaleuca essential oils.


Simply sprinkle baking soda just above the water line in your bowl. Combine the vinegar and essential oils and pour over the baking soda creating a chemical reaction.

Gently scrub and enjoy the fresh scent of the essential oils left behind.  Now if I could just get them to STOP “cleaning” the toilet!!
