Whether it’s a raw onion odor or some other offensive garbage disposal smell, knowing how to get rid of it so that your disposal isn’t unpleasant is a good thing to know. The tips below will help you in deodorizing your disposal.
Tip 1 – Turning Offensive Odor into Lemonade
Cut a lemon or lime into quarters and put the quartered slices into your disposal one at a time with the cold water running and your disposal turned on. Your disposal will smell like a fresh lemonade or limeade.
Tip 2 – Vinegar and Baking Soda
Deodorize your disposal by sprinkling some baking soda from your cupboard into the disposal; just enough to cover the inside. Pour 1/2 a cup of vinegar over the soda. After an hour, return and turn on the cold water and the disposal for a few minutes.
Tip 3 – Vinegar and Ice
Fill up some ice trays with a mixture of distilled white vinegar and water. Once the vinegar cubes have frozen put a few of them into your disposal. Turn on the cold water and your disposal and grind up the ice cubes. Not only does your disposal smell better but you have sharpened the teeth of your disposal at the same time.
