If you’ve ever turned on the garbage disposal switch only to be greeted by a not-so-pleasant odor coming from the kitchen sink, then we’ve got a DIY recipe to freshen things up—fast! This easy recipe combines laundry powder with a few pantry staples like baking soda and salt. We like the refreshing, citrusy notes of orange essential oil, but you can use any favorite scent before popping the mix into molds to set.

What you need
Add baking soda and salt to a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix ½ cup water with 1 scoop oxygen whitener, then add essential oil drops. Pour wet ingredients into dry and add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until mixture loosely holds together. Fill molds; let dry 24 hours. Use 2 tablets any time your disposal needs refreshing!
