DIY Garbage Deodorizer

It’s that time of year again, Spring cleaning.  Our team has been pretty excited about shedding Winter and getting into the fresh of season of Spring.  We’ve been creating new DIY Spring Cleaning ideas and the whole team has been experimenting with oils that help to cleanse out Winter while we welcome Spring.

Our latest favourite office hack has been creating this Garbage Deodorizer powder. Simply mix the following essential oils along with 1 cup of baking soda and sprinkle a few tablespoons into the base of your garbage can whenever you need it to stay fresh!



15 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil

10 drops Lemon Essential Oil

1 cup of Baking Soda


Combine and store in a sealed container, you can also store it in your fridge and use it as a natural deodorizer for your fridge!

Happy Spring Cleaning! Make sure to send us your favourite cleaning DIY projects!

I created VITRUVI with my brother Sean and for the past three years we've spent a significant portion of everyday surrounded by things that smell pretty awesome. Most of my posts are written late in the evening from my bathtub after working long hours with the crazy awesome team at VITRUVI. Also... you can always find Geranium essential oil and Balance Roll on in my bag :)
