    4. Cover a sheet pan with parchment paper, use a small spoon or scoop to mold the half rounds,and then tap them out onto the pan. A rounded teaspoon measuring spoon works wonderfully.Continue molding the refreshers until the mixture is gone. Allow to dry overnight.

    Susan15241734 1 yearHello. I love these and made them last night. I followed directions perfectly but after all night and allday, mine are a crumbly mess. There is no way I could pick them up to put in a jar. I wouldnt think itwould be humidity since it is winter time?? Any suggestions?

    Liz15119900 1 yearI made these a while ago and use them every time I use my disposal. Maybe a little overuse, but theyare awesome. I posted it on my site for my readers!!! Great job! Lizhttp://www.mishapsandmesses.com/2013/11/diy-freshen-up-your-garbage-disposal.html

    Amanda14836277 1 yearI fussed for a while with the little mounds until I realised I could simply replace the lid of the mason jarwith the spout from the salt canister I emptied as shown in this tutorial:http://putitinajar.com/crafts/mason_jar_salt_pepper_pourer_dispenser/ Just pour a small amount intothe garbage disposal when needed. :)

    Sarah-Lipoff 2 yearsThe lemon peel helps clean your garbage disposal blades and gives the refreshers a great scent. If youdon't have a fresh lemon on hand, try making with 2 to 3 tablespoons of lemon juice. I found the glassjar at a flea market years ago and love storing the refreshers in them!

    Stacee14766064 2 yearsWhat is the significance of the lemon peel? Could I just use Lemon Juice instead of a lemon?

    Lindsey14765372 2 yearsWhere did you get that cute jar you store them in?

    Sarah-Lipoff 2 yearsIf you're finding the mixture too soft, or it's not drying, try upping the baking soda and salt by atablespoon each. And if you want extra lemon scent, add the zest of a second lemon. Humidity canmake it tough for these to harden, so finding a nice, dry spot helps them set without crumbling.

    CoMMember13615058893386 2 yearsLoving the smell, but cannot pick up. They are still too soft after a day of drying. They just crumblewhen I try to pick them up. Suggestions?

    CoMMember13629150708217 2 yearsI tried making these the other day. Like a previous poster it took a long time to dry, and the crumbledwhen you picked them up. I didn't really notice a lemon scent, but I may not have used enough zest orlemon juice. I will try again though....I think this is a wonderful idea!

    SondraOppedisano 2 yearsWill this work in a sink drainpipe without the GD...

    Jaime14696983 2 yearsI tried making these the other night after I saw your post. I did everything in the directions but its beentwo days and they are still soft to where of I pick it up they crumble. Is there anything extra I canput inthem to make them hard like in your picture? Thanks! P.s. they smell amaaaaaazing and I can't wait touse them!

    Sarah-Lipoff 2 yearsGood question, Dawn! I've used them with and without the water running, but find starting with thewater off, adding a garbage disposal refresher to my drain, and running the disposal for a few secondsbefore turning on the water leaves things smelling really fresh.

    Dawn14658419 2 yearsSuch a great idea! Perhaps a silly question... when you use these; should the water be on or off? Thankyou!Latest Smart LivingMost Shared View All33 Awesome Ways to Upcycle Paint Chips
