Garbage Disposal Refreshers

February 20, 2018

Does your garbage disposal need a little refreshing? With everything that goes into the disposal, odds are that odors could be accumulating in there. Try this simple DIY recipe to make your own garbage disposal refreshers to help freshen, clean, and deodorize your garbage disposal.



  • 2 cups baking soda

  • 1 cup salt

  • ½ cup water

  • ⅓ cup unscented liquid castile soap

  • 30 drops Lemon oil

Note: Liquid castile soap is a vegetable-based soap commonly found in health food stores.



  • Combine baking soda and salt into bowl.

  • Add castile soap and essential oil into mixture.

  • Add water one tablespoon at a time while stirring with hands until it forms into the consistency of "damp sand". It should stay together when you press it together. If you add too much water just add some more baking soda and salt until the consistency is right.

  • Grab a tablespoon measurement device and scoop packed spoonfuls onto parchment paper.

  • Once the mixture has been scooped, let dry for 24 hours or until they are hard. One batch should make about 36 garbage disposal refreshers.

  • Put into glass jar and use the next time you do dishes! Just put 1–3 refreshers into the garbage disposal and turn it on. You will immediately smell refreshing Lemon essential oil.
