Here’s a Great Way to Clean a Smelly Disposal
Updated: Apr 4
Forget lemons and costly cleaners. Super cheap salt works the best.
We’ve tried everything to make our kitchen garbage disposal clean and sweet-smelling, but the best of the best is ... salt. Yep, salt.
Here’s how it works:
Put a stopper into the sink, and fill with hot water and a squirt of dish detergent.
Turn on the disposal and let the soapy water drain, pushing gunk down the drain with it.
Throw 3 or 4 ice cubes and a handful of large-grain salt, such as Kosher, down the drain and run the disposal.
Flush with water, and you’ve got a clean disposal.
Voila! A fresh-smelling drain!
