Answer: To keep your garbage disposal smelling fresh, take half of a lemon and pop it into the disposal.

Step 1: Cut the peels into half-inch strips and place in your drain.

Step 2: Run your tap at half-power with hot water

Step 3: Turn on the garbage disposal and let it run until you’ve stopped hearing noise for about 10-15 seconds.


Why this works: The natural citrus of the lemons will coat the inside plate and rubber housing of the disposal and give off a fresh-cleaned smell without having to use any hard chemicals.


Note: This method only provides a nice scent. It does not get rid of any food build up. So only use the lemon peel method after the actual problem-causing sludge and grime has been eliminated.


Want to really combat potential odors? Try using half of a lemon followed by a handful or two of baking soda.
