Garbage Disposal Refreshers

garbagedisposaltabs

Do you ever have a stinky garbage disposal?  Do you often use a lemon rind to freshen up your kitchen?  I happened upon this recipe, and thought why not give it a shot.  Seems to me it would clean and freshen up my sink.  Not only were they simple and quick to make, but they worked great!!  Next time I will be doubling or even tripling my batch, as it only made about 15 pods.

MATERIALS NEEDED:

Measure and add the baking soda and salt to a small mixing bowl, and give a stir, ensuring the mixture isn’t lumpy.

Now grate the lemon peel into the mixture along with adding the liquid dish soap.

Slice the lemon in half, and squeeze the juice into the mixture. Continue stirring and adding juice until the mixture resembles course sand, which should take around three tablespoons of juice.

Cover a sheet pan with parchment paper, use a small spoon or scoop to mold the half rounds, and then tap them out onto the pan. A rounded teaspoon measuring spoon works wonderfully. Continue molding the refreshers until the mixture is gone. Allow to dry overnight.

Place the dried garbage disposal refreshers in a sealable container. When your sink isn’t smelling fresh, simply place a few in the disposal, and flip the switch.
