Nothing smells worse than ages of food piled up and rotting in your disposal.
Here is an easy, eco-friendly remedy for freshening up the scent of your disposal, or even common trash can.
- 1 tablespoon orange or lemon essential oils (or ½ cup orange or lemon rinds)
- 2 tablespoons of fresh or dried rosemary
- White distilled vinegar
- Ice cube tray
- Cut the rinds along with the rosemary (or use with oils blending in a container)
- Place oils or fruit bits into ice cube tray
- Pour over vinegar
- Let mixture freeze
The next time foul aromas begin wafting from your sink or garbage receptacle, toss in a cube. If it happens to be your sink, turn on the water. Orange, lemon and lime peels are all natural antibacterial agents. They disinfect like common commercial cleaners. Vinegar also has cleaning properties.
