Natural Ground Coffee Cleaners for Sink Disposal

What you will need:

Makes about 30 cleaners

  • 1 cup of used and dry ground coffee
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts
  • 1/2 cup of baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
  • A small bowl
  • Rounded measuring spoon or small melon
  • Tray to bake
  • Wax paper


  1. Measure and add the coffee beans, Epsom salts, and baking soda to the bowl . In addition to giving your sink (or sink) a great aroma, coffee grounds also sharpen the blades on your garbage disposal. Baking soda naturally cleanses the canal, and Epsom salts break down scale that builds up from water.
  2. Slowly add the vinegar – it will bubble when it interacts with the baking soda, which is totally normal. Add a little at a time until the mixture resembles wet sand. You can also add the vanilla to give an extra extra aroma.
  3. Mix everything very well until it is a homogeneous paste.
  4. Cover the tray with wax paper, and use a rounded melon ball scoop to create the shape of the cleaners. Take the mixture and then press into the mold.
  5. Let them dry overnight and then put them in a container next to your sink or sink and use them when needed. Just pop one down the drain, turn on the garbage disposal and water, and enjoy the wonderful smell.
