Here is a simple way to make your own Homemade Citrus Garbage Disposal Refresheners using items you would normally throw away. The next time you use a lemon, lime or eat an orange, hang on to those peels to help keep your garbage disposal smelling fresh and clean.
Using just a little vinegar, which is an awesome natural cleaner, and the rinds of citrus fruits, you can make some super inexpensive fresheners to get rid of those odors that are coming up from your disposal.
What You Need:
>> Rinds from a lime, lemon, orange or other citrus fruit
>> Thieves Essential Oils
>> An ice cube tray (or a muffin tin works great for this too!)
What You Do:
1. Chop up the rinds of your lime, lemon or orange into small pieces.
2. Put a little bit of the mixture into each hold of your ice cube tray, or into each section of your muffin tin.
3. Fill the sections with vinegar, add a few drops of Thieves essential oils and put in the freezer until frozen.
4. Once frozen, you can store your freshening cubes in a storage container or a freezer bag.
5. To use, just put one of the cubes in the garbage disposal and turn it on. Keep the water running while you are running your disposal.
