How to Make Your Own Toilet Tablets

Commercial toilet cleaners in tablet form make bathroom cleanup simpler. However, you can make a tablet toilet cleaner that is just as effective for a fraction of the cost, using items you may already own. Homemade toilet tablets do not contain harmful chemicals and are environmentally friendly. And by placing the ingredients in a water-soluble bag, you can create a soft tablet that doesn't require drying.

Step 1

Crush three vitamin C tablets using a mortar and pestle. If you do not have a mortar and pestle, place the tablets in a plastic zippered bag and use a rolling pin, the back of a large spoon or a hammer to break down the tablets.

Step 2

Place the crushed vitamin C tablets into a small water-soluble plastic bag.

Step 3

Add two effervescent antacid- and pain-relieving tablets to the water-soluble plastic bag.

Step 4

Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda to the water-soluble plastic bag.

Step 5

Shake the water-soluble plastic bag to mix the ingredients, holding the top of the bag closed as you do this.

Step 6

Tie a water-soluble cable tie around the water-soluble plastic bag, just above the contents you inserted.

Step 7

Cut off the excess part of the plastic bag above the cable tie.

Step 8

Continue this process until you create the number of soft toilet-cleaning tablets you want.
