The remnants of yesterday's feast can leave an unwanted fragrance hanging around in your garbage disposal. But fear not! Follow these easy steps to keep your kitchen smelling fresh and clean. First things first, make cleaning your garbage disposal a regular part of your routine—once every day or two should do the trick. Here's the magic formula: Ice and Salt Combo: 1. While letting cold water run, toss in a handful of ice cubes and a few tablespoons of salt. 2. The ice and salt tag team freezes food bits, making them a breeze to dislodge, while the salt scrubs the disposal's sides. 3. Keep the water flowing until all the ice is smashed into bits. Baking Soda and Vinegar Fizz: 1. If the stench is stubborn, go for the big guns. 2. Sprinkle half a cup of baking soda into the disposal, followed by a cup of vinegar. 3. Brace yourself for the fizz show—let it bubble away for about 10 minutes. 4. Finish strong by pouring very hot water down the drain. Citrusy Zing: 1. For an extra burst of freshness, slice up small pieces of lemon, lime, and/or orange. 2. Pop them into the disposal while running cold water, then turn on the disposal and let it grind away for 20-30 seconds. Take a Breath: Now, take a deep breath and enjoy the sweet scent of victory over kitchen odors. Quick reminder: Safety first! Keep those hands out of the garbage disposal zone while performing these cleaning miracles. With these tips, you'll banish unpleasant smells and keep your kitchen smelling as delightful as a citrus grove on a sunny day. Happy cleaning! Back to Cleaning Secrets Index
