After dinner, I noticed a cookie sheet full of what looked like lovely lemon cookies. As I reached for one, my husband, Eric said that Grace had made these homemade garbage disposal cleaners. Thank goodness he was standing there! Grace is becoming quite the domestic goddess!
DIY Garbage Disposal Refreshers
3/4 cup baking soda
1/2 cup salt
1/2 tsp liquid dish soap
Small spoon or scoop
Sealable glass jar
Gather the ingredients for making the garbage disposal refreshers. Measure and add the baking soda and salt to a small mixing bowl, and give a stir, ensuring the mixture isn’t lumpy.
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.
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.
