DIY Garbage Disposal Refreshers
These simple to make garbage disposal refreshers will both deodorize and keep your sink smelling fresh!
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • ½ cup salt
  • Juice from 1 lemon (and grated rind - optional)
  • 2-3 tablespoons water
  1. First, add the baking soda and salt to a bowl and mix to combine.
  2. Slowly stir in the lemon juice and water to mix. If you are using the rind of the lemon, use a microplane grater to remove the zest from the lemon and add to the mixture. Stir well to combine: the mixture should be like wet sand. You can add more or less water into the mixture depending on the consistency.
  3. Use a small cookie scoop or rounded teaspoon to drop rounds of the mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  4. Allow refreshers 24 hours or more to dry. Then, remove from the baking sheet and place in a sealed container to store.
