  • 100g citric acid
  • 400ml boiling water
  • 1 tsp guar gum
  • 1 tsp vegetable glycerine

In a small bowl mix guar gum and vegetable glycerine together until well combined and set aside. In a larger bowl whisk the boiling water and citric acid until the acid is completely dissolved. Add the gum and glycerine mix to the large bowl with water and acid, whisking to combine. Add your essential oils and an optional drop of food colouring (this helps you see where you have applied the gel) and mix well. Allow to cool and thicken for a few hours before pouring into your bottle. To use, add gel to toilet bowl and spread using toilet brush. Leave for 5-10 mins, give a quick scrub and flush. For shower and bath cleaning, add the gel and spread around using your scrub brush using bristles to clean grout. Leave for 5-10 mins, give it a scrub and rinse off.
