Friday’s Life Hack: Make Your Own Deodorizer Discs

Deodorizing Discs


2 cups baking soda

1 cup distilled water

3-4 drops lavender and/or lemon essential oil


Add 3 to 4 drops of your essential oil to 1/2 cup of water. Pour the scented water into the baking soda and mix well. Continue to add small amounts of water until the mixture forms a very thick paste. Divide the mixture into small balls or mold them into whatever shape you want. You can use silicon shaped tins.  

Let the disks dry until completely hard, usually takes about 24 to 48 hours depending on how humid it is in your area.

One deodorizing disk should last about one month before it needs to be replaced. And when you’re ready to replace an old disk with a fresh one, you can crumble the old one into your laundry to help eliminate odors there!
