Have you ever been doing dishes and afterward smell some stench coming from your garbage disposal? I had a stinky garbage disposal the other day and decided I needed to make some garbage disposal fresheners.
DIY Garbage Disposal Fresheners!
Naturally Deodorize a Stinky Garbage Disposal
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
2 cups baking soda
1 cup salt
1/3 cup unscented liquid castile soap
30 drops Lemon essential oil
1/2 cup water
- In a large bowl, mix together the baking soda and the salt.
- Add the castile soap and the Lemon essential oil.
- Add the water slowly to the mixture. I suggest adding about a tablespoon at a time and mix with your hands. You will want a consistency of wet sand. It should stick together in a clump if you press it together. If you get too much water, you can add more baking soda and salt to the mixture to get the right consistency.
- Press the mixture in a silicone mold and allow them to dry for about 24 hours. If you don’t have molds, you could pack a tablespoon and place them on wax paper to dry.
- Store your garbage disposal fresheners in an airtight container.
- Use 1 to 3 fresheners to each time your garbage disposal gets stinky. Just simply place them in the garbage disposal and turn it on. No more stink!
These sure beat trying to find the fresheners in the store. I have looked and had a hard time finding them. Plus, I like the idea of making my own. I know what goes in them and it makes me feel better with little ones around the house.
