Homemade Deodorizing Disks

Being a fabulous frugalista sometimes means making your own stuff.  Actually, I prefer homemade items for cleaning since I control what goes into it.  No more toxic fumes and burnt, stuffy nose from my old method of using bleach and other harsh chemicals for just about everything.

Let's face it, cleaning items are expensive!  It doesn't matter how many coupons you gather up, it adds up quickly . . . unless you have a free coupon.

You probably already have the simple ingredients in this recipe for deodorizing disks . . .

  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1 – 2 cups distilled water (or you can boil your water for 10 minutes.)
  • Lavender essential oil (or whatever oil you choose. Citrus would be good too!)
  • Silicone mold or muffin pan
