You can easily create it by yourself and henceforth, you don’t need to buy any deodorizer stuff to prevent odor in the garbage can.

All you need is very regular stuff. Most of the required stuff, if not all, can be found in your house. You will need baking soda, essential oil, ice mold (or any other silicone mold), and water. Actually, you can use almost any essential oil or combination, but here I recommend lemon essential oil, tea tree essential oil, and tangerine oil.

With all the ingredients and supplies ready, you can start to deodorizer pods. Just follow the step by step guide below.

Step 1. Prepare 2 cups of baking soda in a container. It is recommended to use a strainer to make sure there are no lumps.

Step 3. Stir them with a spoon after adding essential oil. While stirring, add 1 cup of distilled water slowly.
