Homemade Citrus Garbage Disposal Refreshers

Garbage disposals can become stinky very quickly, especially if any food gets left in the disposal.

The best part of using these citrus refreshers is that they leave your kitchen smelling lovely and clean!

  • 8–10 drops lemon essential oil

Instructions:

  1. Mix the baking soda and salt together in a bowl.
  2. Stir in the liquid dish soap, lime zest, lime juice, and essential oils. Mix together with hands.The mixture should be a wet sand consistency; if it is not, add a little water until it becomes the right consistency.
