Do you really want to spend your hard-earned cash on toilet cleaner??? No thank you very much! I’d much rather whip up my own DIY toilet cleaner for a few cents and save the rest for the more important items in life such as shoes! Moreover, many grocery store toilet cleaners contain bleach and other toxic chemicals that you could well do without.

This is a simple and great recipe that I always make:

  • 1 cup distilled water
  • 1/4 cup liquid castille soap
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1tsp tea tree essential oil
  • 1 tsp lavender essential oil
  • 1 toilet bowel squirt bottle

Mix all the ingredients in a large glass pouring jug. Careful when you add the vinegar as the whole lot will fizz.

Pour into the squirt bottle – I use an old toilet cleaner bottle.

Shake the bottle before each use. Keep in mind that this is also a toilet scrub – so have a good toilet brush at the ready!

  1. I have made this toilet cleaner and loved how it smelt however found that the soda does not dissolve and you are left, with the soda, with it at the bottom of the pan. It takes quite a few flushes before it goes.
    Should the soda (bi carb) be dissolved first?

      Try shaking the bottle really well before using. The baking soda will be a bit gritty, but you need that for scrubbing.

    Hi Sophie, I love your work! Thank you so much. 🙂
    Your recipe here says to mix Vingegar with Castile Soap…and I noticed you used Dr. Bonner’s….but Lisa Bonner herself (his grand-daughter) warns us on her website – – that we are ‘not’ to mix vinegar with Castile soap as they cancel each other out. Just thought I’d inform. Best wishes, Jo.
