It’s really hard to keep my home clean and tidy all the time with a busy family. I do enjoy cleaning up messes and cooking but toilet cleaning is one of my least favorite chores.I saw many tutorials on Pinterest and online and end up making toilet cleaning tablets with 3 natural ingredients without any harsh chemicals.
Baking soda:1 cup
Citric Acid:1/2 Cup
Dishwashing Detergent: 2 Tbs
Mix baking soda and citric acid together and remove lumps.
I used my favorite Dawn detergent and mix it well .combine everything together.
Use an ice-cube tray and press the mixture firmly to make a shape of tablet.leave it overnight at room temperature.
I used these tablets mostly at night-time to fizz and disinfect my toilet bowl.Just drop a tablet, let it fizz and flush.It cleans and removes odors.
If you remember I showed this super cute table weights here.Honestly speaking I didn’t buy it for this purpose never intended to use them as table weights. I just wanted to have them because these are super cute.I thought let be more practical and make a good use of these adorable clips.
I bought magnets from a craft store and You may find it easily at dollar stores.I used my all-time favorite super glue E-6000. I glued the magnet to my table clips and waited 2 hours.That’s it…Isn’t so simple and easy …doesn’t need any advanced skills!!
These are super cute and has a clip as well so I could use it on my fridge or magnetic board and hang my pictures with the clip.
You can make your very own fridge magnet by using a craft magnet and glue.It’s really fun to have it….isn’t it? I still have some craft magnets left so wait and see what I am going to do with those left overs…yes I love leftover…;-)
