Garbage Disposal Refreshers DIY

January 11, 2017

Our kitchens are where many of us feel the most comfort at home. It’s the place we brew a cup of coffee or tea to get the day going. It’s the spot we prepare warm meals for ourselves and our families. The kitchen is a special place and adding a little aromatherapy can make it all the more enjoyable.

To keep your kitchen fresh, we’ve outlined steps to make garbage disposal refreshers. Simply drop a few into your sink and introduce a pleasant aroma into your home.

What you need:

1 cup salt

1/2 cup water

2 cups baking soda

1/3 cup liquid Castile soap

30 drops Lemon essential oil

How to:

  1. Mix the salt and baking soda in a bowl.
  2. Pour the Castile soap and add 30 drops of Lemon essential oil.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until you get a clumpy, wet sand-like mixture.
  4. Pack the mixture into balls using a tablespoon.
  5. For at least 24 hours, let the balls dry on parchment paper.
  6. Drop 2-3 balls into your garbage disposal to deodorize. Use a glass container to store.

Note: Makes 36 garbage disposal refreshers.
