DIY Toilet Bombs!


with Kristen Bartlett

Calendar Mar 19, 2023 at 10 am, runs for 1 week

The easiest (and laziest!) way to clean your toilet is with toilet bombs! Just pop one or two into your toilet and watch the fizzing magic as it dissolves those water lines, discoloration and absorbs stinky odors. The hardworking ingredients will be released into the toilet bowl, deodorizing and cleaning it. Once the fizzing stops, flush your toilet and vĂ³ila! Learn to create and customize the scents of these glorious, all-natural toilet-cleaning bombs and leave class with your first batch! Toilet bomb ingredients will be supplied.

Required: Proof of registration. Bring a 24-cup mini muffin pan or equivalent silicone molds in any shape, two large mixing bowls, a mixing spoon and apron.
