Last week you learned I have sweet tooth. This week you will learn I am a serious planner and attempting to control my environment is something I just can’t shake. Having kids has put my planner personality in its place, but there are a few things I can still do to feel all is right in my world. Having a shiny, fresh sink is one of those things. It just makes for a good day when I can wake up to clean sink (yes, incase you are wondering, I am serious 😉). So, if you are a control freak like me grasping at straws to feel normal, or if you just love DIY, try this recipe. I can assure you it will not disappoint.

DIY Lemon Garbage Disposal Fresheners ~

What You’ll Need:
* 3/4 cup baking soda
* 1/2 cup salt
* 1/2 teaspoon liquid dish soap
* 3 tbsp Lemon Juice
* 10 drops Lemon essential oil
* Sheet pan
* Parchment paper
* Small spoon or scoop
* Glass jar

🍋Add the baking soda and salt to a small mixing bowl and stir well, making sure it’s not lumpy(because really who wants to be lumpy 🙊)
🍋Add lemon juice, essential oil, and liquid dish soap (I used thieves dish soap)
🍋Stir until the mixture resembles sand
🍋Cover a sheet pan with parchment paper and use a small spoon or scoop to mold
🍋Allow to dry overnight.
🍋Place the dried garbage disposal fresheners in a glass container
🍋Use as often as needed and you will have the freshest sink on the block

The keys to success:

  • mixing your ingredients well to a consistency of fine sand
  • adding more lemon juice as needed (I have better luck when they are a little on the moist side)
  • using a deep enough spoon to mold them (I use a measuring spoon, find a fun spoon to mold them)
  • packing the ingredients tightly into your measuring spoon so they take shape and hold together well
  • allowing them ample time to dry before placing in your jar (they need to dry overnight, seriously they do)
