How to Clean Your Garbage Disposal

Posted by Agentis on Jan 10, 2018 11:11:10 AM

Got smells?

Here are three easy ways to clean out your garbage disposal and get it smelling fresh again.


Is it time to replace your garbage disposal?

  1. Lemon
    Cut several small pieces of lemon that will easily grind in the disposal will leave it smelling like citrus. 
  1. Ice
    Put several ice cubes into the disposal. Turn on the disposal and turn on the cold water. As the ice gets ground up it will scour out the scraps of food that are causing the odors. 
  1. Baking Soda & Vinegar
    Put about ½ cup of baking soda into the disposal and let it sit for about a half an hour, letting it absorb all the smells from the disposal. Then add in 1 cup of white vinegar to create your “volcano” and help scour out the remaining odors. Once the bubbling stops, flush your sink with hot water.
