Today I am so excited to share my favorite four natural fresh scent bathroom solutions. In a house of boys, bathrooms are one of my least favorite rooms to clean. Keeping my bathrooms sparkling and smelling good can be challenging. If you are like me, you are happy for any little simple household helpers to make your smelly bathroom days a little more pleasant along the way!
Four Natural Fresh Scent Bathroom Solutions
These four natural fresh scent bathroom solutions are so simple, toxic-free, 100% natural, with minimal ingredients and little effort to get started.
Homemade Poo-Pourri Spray
Nothing like starting out by talking about poo the first thing in a post–but hear it goes!
Have you discovered the ingenious Poo-Pouuri spray that can make your big business in the toilet smell better? if you have not used this amazing product. well it is just that–amazing. Poo-Pourri comes in really cute packaging, and is called the “before you go” spray.
The way Poo-Pourri works is it creates a oily surface (barrier) on the top of your toilet bowl water. This oily barrier keeps all poo smells from wafting into the bathroom when you go. And I am telling you it does work, thus given the appropriate name of Poo-Pourri! In my house of boys I was so happy to discover this great product. However, this little gem of a product cost around $9.00 a bottle. (for a small bottle)
So why not make my own homemade Poo-Pourri Spray and save a lot of money?
I thought I would try my hand at making a Poo-Pourri spray using my doTERRA essential oils. I figured that if the oily film on the water was the key to the success of the no-poo smell, then this should work. I am happy to report that this homemade version is mom-approved, kid-approved, family-approved and works just as well as the store-bought version.
Here is what you need to make homemade Poo-Pourri spray.
- 3.5 oz. water
- 30 drops wild orange
- 30 drops lavender
- 30 drops lemongrass
- 1 4 oz. dark glass spray bottle
Put all the ingredients in your bottle and shake up. That’s it. It couldn’t be easier. Have fun making different combos of essential oils, and play around with the amounts of drops for different scents. I just found that you need to have the 60 drops total to make it good and effective! (Be sure to shake your bottle each time you use it, to incorporate the oils with the water.)
*A bonus to this spray is it also works for scenting your hand towel. Just give a quick spritz to freshen your hanging towel in the bathroom.
Fizzing Toilet Bowl Cleaner Recipe
This is my all-time favorite toilet cleaner, and the bonus is that my boys love to clean toilets, so they can watch the fizzing action! I love using toxic-free bathroom cleaners, and I can feel good about my kids using them as well. I hope you give this super easy toilet cleaner recipe a try.
Add all the ingredients into the toilet bowl in the order they are listed. Let the fizzing action happen, then swish and scrub with a toilet brush making sure to get under the rim. Flush to rinse. You will be amazed at the results and the nice pleasant smell.
Toilet Paper Natural Deodorizer
This is the simplest bathroom deodorizer ever. Add a few drops of your favorite scent of essential oil to the inside of your toilet paper rolls. This will add some instant fresh scent to your bathroom and you can get a whiff of it every time you spin that roll! Simple, easy and smells so nice.
Sparkle Mirror and Glass Cleaner
I love a good glass and mirror cleaner. This is one of my favorite recipes. Simple to make, and gives that much needed sparkle to the splashed on mirror.
- 3/4 cups of white vinegar
- 2 1/4 cups of warm distilled water
- 3 teaspoons of Castile liquid soap
- 4 drops of lemon essential oil
Add all of the ingredients to a new spray bottle that is free from any chemical residue. Shake the bottle to mix the ingredients together thoroughly. Spray the mixture all over your bathroom mirrors, and glass shower doors. Wipe clean with a soft cloth, paper towels, or some find that newspapers even work great.
I hope you give these four natural fresh scent bathroom solutions a try!
