Natural Coffee Ground Cleaners for the Sink Grinder

What you will need:

Makes about 30 cleaners

  • 1 cup of ground coffee already used and dry
  • 1/2 cup epsom salts
  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons of 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 grounds, Epsom salts, and baking soda to the bowl. In addition to giving the sink (or sink) a great aroma, ground coffee also sharpens the blades of the garbage disposal. The baking soda naturally cleanses the canal, and the Epsom salts break down the tartar that builds up from the water.
  2. Little by little add the vinegar – it will bubble when it interacts with baking soda, which is totally normal. Add a little at a time until the mixture resembles wet sand. You can also add vanilla to give an extra aroma plus.
  3. Mix everything very well until there is a homogeneous paste.
  4. Line the tray with wax paper, and use a rounded melon baller to create the shape of the scrapers. Take the mixture and then press it into the mold.
  5. Let them dry overnight and then put them in a container next to your sink or sink and use them as needed. Just stick one down the drain, turn on the garbage disposal and water, and enjoy the wonderful smell.
