Course: DIY, Homemade Cleaners


  • 2 lemons, sliced into small pieces
  • 2 limes, sliced into small pieces
  • 2 Ice cube Trays
  • 32 oz White vinegar


How To Make Garbage Disposal Cleaning Tabs

  • Cut the lemons and limes into small chunks
  • Put a piece in each ice cube cavity
  • Fill each cavity with vinegar
  • Place the trays in the freezer
  • Once the cubes are frozen, transfer them to a container or ziplock freezer bag

How to Clean A Garbage Disposal

  • When you are ready to freshen up your garbage disposal, toss a tab into your sink with the garbage disposal and water running.
  • Each cleaning requires between 1-3 cubes to achieve your desired fresh citrus scent


Why not keep them in the ice cube trays?
You will notice that the freezer will have a temporary vinegar smell while the cubes are freezing. Putting the cleaning tabs in a container or freezer bag will contain the vinegar smell within your freezer.
