DIY Toilet Cleaning Pods are the latest cleaning pod I’ve started making. I absolutely love using DIY pods for other home cleaning tasks (see my post here for DIY laundry pods and DIY dishwashing pods), but using them for toilet cleaning is especially satisfying because this is one of my least favorite chores.
All of my DIY pods are easy, quick, and cost-efficient, but with only 3 ingredients these DIY Toilet Cleaning Pods are the simplest and most economical of all.
DIY Toilet Cleaning Pods:
- 1 C. Baking Soda
- ¼ C. Citric Acid
- 1 ½ Tbsp. Peppermint Scented Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Soap
- 1” x 1” Silicone Pan
- Bowls and spoons
1. Mix baking soda and citric acid together in small bowl.
2. Slowly pour soap into dry ingredients.
3. Mix thoroughly.
4. Spoon mixture into 1” x 1” silicone mold and press it firmly into place.
5. Let harden for 1 to 2 hours before popping pods out of the mold. Continue hardening on a plate overnight.
6. Store in an airtight container.
7. When ready to use simply drop a pod in the toilet and let it fizz out completely, then brush and flush (if desired). If preferred let cleaning mixture sit in the bowl for a while before brushing.
* Makes 12 pods.
I’m sure if you’re like me you want to make your least favorite task as easy as possible. Whip up a batch of these DIY Toilet Cleaning Pods in about 15 minutes and you’ll save yourself time, money, and aggravation!

I have never even considered making my own toilet cleaner before but this seems like a really straight forward and simple DIY! Thank you so much for this! Charlie xo

This seems like a really excellent cleaner and I will definitely give in a try. I like that it includes baking soda and Dr. Bronners soap. That soap is so potent and smells great. I have not made my own cleaner in the past, but I always use baking soda when I clean.
This is great. I never tried to make toilet pods before. But I’ve done from the laundry before and loved them. I’m sure these will be great too
One of the most helpful posts I saw in recent times. Thanks for the simplified detailed process.
