More Tips For Fresh Smelling Disposal

Four tips to keep your garbage disposal smelling fresh

  • Run your garbage disposal often, even when it is empty, this will keep everything moving
  • When running your garbage disposal always use cold water—hot water can melt grease, which causes clogs.
  • Avoid putting kinds of foods down there, such as grease, bones, large fruit pits, and foods that expand when wet, like rice or pasta.
  • Always grind small pieces of food thoroughly, run your disposal for a longer period of time – than you think—a few seconds is not long enough

Alternate Garbage Disposal Refresher and Cleaner

  • Cut some orange or lemon peels into small pieces
  • Add the peels to some water and make ice cubes

To use: 

Run your garbage disposal, run cold water, and add your ice cubes.  Let your garbage disposal run until the ice has melted or until you no longer hear the ice breaking up
