Smells happen. They show up in the oddest places at the worst times and stay longer than you’d like. Thankfully you probably have all the ingredients in your home right now to make your own homemade deodorizers. Try a batch of these DIY Deodorizing Disks today!
The first place I wanted to freshen up was my linen closet. I don’t know how a small area full of freshly cleaned linens can get so stuffy smelling. I just place one of these disks in there and then I get to enjoy the fresh, clean scent every time we change the sheets. The disks seem to last forever, but it’s probably more accurate that they need to be replaced twice a year.
Deodorizing disks can be placed under the sink in your guest bathroom or inside your teenager’s closet. Different issues. Same fresh solution.
The baking soda acts to naturally neutralize odors. The combination of Lavender and Lemon Essential Oils bring a bright and fresh herbal scent. The secret ingredient in our Deodorizing Disks is the vanilla extract. Oh my! It just adds the perfect touch of sweetness!
This pan is the key to making Deodorizing Disks the perfect size! Each cavity holds just the right amount because nobody needs a hockey puck deodorizer, right?! And truthfully the pattern is adorable. The compartments are non-stick. The recipe makes about 20 of these little cookie sized disks.
Or how cute is this daisy pan?! (click here to grab one for yourself) Same size and depth for great results and easy to remove from the silicone pan.

- 1 cup baking soda
- 4 tablespoons distilled water
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 15 drops Lemon Essential Oil
- 10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- Mix all ingredients in a small glass bowl.
- Divide the mixture into your cookie pan (or this one) to make about 20 disks.
- Allow to dry completely, probably overnight. DO NOT remove them while they are still damp. They’ll fall apart.
- To use: Place in your refrigerator, linen closet, or any place that needs deodorizing. Replace as needed.
- Store any unused disks in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.
*NOTE: Please make sure to place these out of reach of your little ones. Children could mistake these for cookies and you don’t want that. They’ll taste terrible.
