A clean, fresh garbage disposal will keep your kitchen smelling great and your plumbing running smoothly. Here’s a quick, easy, and cheap idea for keeping your garbage disposal clean and sharp:
Feed your garbage disposal a steady diet of lemon and vinegar ice cubes. All you need to do is slice up some lemons, place them in ice cube molds (muffin tins will also work), and fill each with vinegar.
When the cubes are frozen, you can store them in a plastic bag in the freezer. Throw a handful in the garbage disposal every few days and let it run until the cubes are dissolved. Voila! It’s a natural way to keep your kitchen smelling nice and your garbage disposal sanitized.
