Most trash cabinets, ours included, can get a bit smelly. Commercial air fresheners mask the odor, but I wanted to remove the smell using natural ingredients. After doing some research, I found this solution: A combination of baking soda and essential oil will remove the odors and provide a nice light scent.
Just to be fancy, I placed the combination in jam jars with cheesecloth used in place of the top lid. If you don't have the time or inclination to use a jam jar, placing the baking soda/essential oil combination in a bowl will work as well. Replace the baking soda/oil combination monthly.
|The things you'll need: baking soda, essential oil, jam jars and cheesecloth|
Combine 1/2 cup baking soda and 4-5 drops of your favorite essentialoil (I used orange essential oil)
After mixing together the baking soda and oil, place in the jam jar and coverwith cheesecloth
|Screw the lid on the jam jar and trim the cheesecloth around the lid|
