Comments & Reviews
Can these be used for other chores around the house as well like mopping?
I’ve read lemon juice can be used instead of citric acid.
How long do you recommend for the drying time? Tks.
Depending on your location/humidity it might take up to 24-48 hours to dry them completely.
I was curious as to how many bombs this makes per recipe for the $ ??
I think that would depend on your mold sizes… for a small mold like this one it made 6 if I remember correctly.
This is the absolute best recipe for toilet cleaner! Thank you

Canning supplies at Walmart or Target

Does it matter what size you make the pods?
I don’t think it matters too much, I wouldn’t get them too big though.. keep them on the smaller size.

Hi Karrie, I just made these and the mixture foamed up like crazy and just kept foaming. I could pat it down and pack it into the mold but it just kept foaming away. I probably didn’t use the right kind of soap. What did you use? Thanks!
Tammy McDowell says
Was it wet? Sounds like it might be a possiblilty bc the foaming is the chemical reaction between the baking soda and citric acid. Just like bath bombs foaming starts with the addition of water
Laura H says
Yes mine did the same thing do I add more baking soda??
