How to Clean Your Garbage Disposal:

  • Use Baking Soda – Sprinkle baking soda down the disposal and then add one cup of white vinegar. Once added, the mixture will fizz. Then, pour boiling hot water down the drain on top of the mixture. This will help keep things clear.
  • Remove Debris With IceFill the drain with two cups of ice. Run cold water down the drain and turn on the garbage disposal until the ice is gone. This will help loosen any debris that might be sticking to the sides of your disposal.
  • Keep Your Drain Lemony FreshCut a lemon into slices and place it down your garbage disposal while it is running. This will help deodorize your drain and keep it smelling fresh!
