The current water crisis in Cape Town has left everyone with an anti-flush policy where if necessary greywater should be used. I have decided to share this lovely Natural anti-flush toilet spray, which can be used in situations where it’s  good to let it mellow. In other situations, it’s best to use greywater for flushing. 

This DIY anti-flush spray can be used to spray into the toilet bowl after usage to neutralise uric acid and prevent stains while killing off unwanted bacteria thanks to tea tree oil.

  • 2 cups distilled white vinegar
  • 2 cups lukewarm water
  • 4 heaped tablespoons bicarbonate soda
  • 20 drops each each of lemongrass, rosemary and tea tree essential oils For a citrus fresh smell try this combination: 20 drops each of lemongrass, grapefruit and bergamot add 10 drops of tea tree oil for its anti-bacterial properties


  1. Add the water, vinegar and essential oils.

  2. Slowly add small amounts of bicarbonate of soda to the water mix as it will fizz over if you add too much at a time.

  3. Fill into a spray bottle and place near toilet for easy use
