DIY garbage disposal refreshers

If you’re finding the mixture too soft, or it’s not drying, try upping the baking soda and salt by a tablespoon each. And if you want extra lemon scent, add the zest of a second lemon. Humidity can make it tough for these to harden, so finding a nice, dry spot helps them set without crumbling.

The lemon peel helps clean your garbage disposal blades and gives the refreshers a great scent. If you don’t have a fresh lemon on hand, try making with 2 to 3 tablespoons of lemon juice. I found the glass jar at a flea market years ago and love storing the refreshers in them!

If your garbage disposal isn’t as fresh as it should be, DIY these homemade refreshers for a quick fix. Made with lemon peel and baking soda, these little rounds pack a serious cleaning punch while costing only a few dollars to make. And they look darn cute in a glass jar next to your sink.

Ingredients: 3/4 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 teaspoon liquid dish soap, 1 lemon, sheet pan, parchment paper, small spoon or scoop, sealable glass jar.

Direction:

Slowly spray the liquid dish soap on the baking soda while mixing until you’ve used all 90 drops. Mix the solution with the lemon zest and salt. It should fizz a little bit when the moisture touches the mixture, but if there is excessive fizzing you are spraying too quickly.
Put the mixture into a silicone mold – or you can press it into an ice cube tray.
Let the bombs dry for at least 6 hours, then remove from the molds and store in a container with a tight lid.
