How To Make Fresh-Smelling Toilet Spray

Nobody likes to think about it, but bathrooms are incredibly gross. It's a fact of life that we all have to use one on a daily basis, so avoidance isn't exactly an option when nature calls. Especially when it comes to public bathrooms, the smell and appearance of them can be so offending that it instantly triggers your gag reflex. You can't control the condition of public toilets, but you can control the ones in your home. Good Housekeeping’s Meaghan Murphy recommends that you clean your toilet seat, handle, rim, and bowl at least once a week if it isn't visibly dirty. If it looks grimy before that point, you might want to address it sooner rather than later.

Have you ever felt a bit guilty about using the toilet right after a good cleaning? You have to use it at some point, but it's still a bit frustrating to have your hard work be flushed down the drain because someone decided to have a bean burrito for lunch. Even if it doesn't cause a visible mess, the scent of sterilization instantly vanishes after that first bowel movement. You could have an air freshener in there to help, but they never seem to act quickly enough. What if someone is waiting to use the toilet right after?

Thankfully, the folks over at Clean My Space have the perfect solution: a DIY poo spray. Some stores offer something similar for sale, but why spend excessive amounts of money when you can make one yourself for just pennies? This spray is also great on the go so that you don't have to feel embarrassed about using the toilet at a friend's or relative's home.

What you will need:

  • Your favorite essential oil
  • Vegetable glycerin
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Food coloring
  • Water
  • A spray bottle
