|Ignore that I used my old muffin tin :)|
Last week I saw this great recipe to make these odour absorbing pucks and because they are super easy to make I knew I should share. They are very cost effective to make.
1 cup baking soda
Water (I used distilled)
Essential oil (I used mint and lemon)
Mix just enough water with the baking soda to make a thick paste. Add about 20 drops of essential oil. Pour into lined muffin tin. Can use regular size as I did or mini. Let air dry for about 24 hours. Extra pucks can be stored sealed in a baggie in the freezer. Remove from paper liner before use. They are a little crumbly so I would do this once you are at your final destination instead of while walking there...just sayin' could mean a little sweeping will be in order.
We have been using them for over a week and they work great still. I have been told they can last up to three weeks and that they work great for cloth diaper pails. We keep the downstairs bathroom door closed to keep our toddler out so I noticed a faint minty smell when I went in the other day. Much better than usual. I think I will have to pick up some more 'flavours' of essential oils to play around with once this batch is used up. Maybe an orange or lavender. Any suggestions what would be nice in a babies room?
