Homemade Toilet Cleaner

Everyone likes a clean toilet and nice smelling bathroom, right?  I certainly do and this has become one of my favorite ways to achieve both.

Lemon-Pine Toilet Cleaner

1 Cup Boiling Water
1 Cup Borax
1 Cup Vinegar
10 drops Pine Essential Oil
10 drops Lemon Essential Oil

Mix together the boiling water and borax until the borax dissolves.  Add the vinegar and essential oils, stirring well.  Dump the whole thing into your toilet and let it sit (overnight is fine).  Scrub with your brush and flush.  It'll leave the bowl clean and if you have hard water the vinegar helps get rid of that calcium build up and the whole bathroom will smell nice but not overly harsh.

You could easily switch up the essential oils to scents you enjoy more.  If you used some grapefruit seed oil, it has some antibacterial properties, too.


  1. Oh this recipe sounds great! I am going to try this but with tea tree instead of pine. Thank you!

  2. Definitely trying... :)
