Although it seems like garbage disposals are self-cleaning, occasionally you can probably detect an odor coming from the sink area, which means it’s time to do a little cleaning. It’s always best to read and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for cleaning your garbage disposal. If you cringe at the thought of putting your hand in a garbage disposal, you may prefer an alternative way to remove odors. There are many types of commercially available cleaning, degreasing, and deodorizing products for your disposal but there are a few things you can also do on the cheap.

Run the water into your sink and drop some ice into the garbage disposal. The sound is loud and unnerving, but the hard ice helps scour the mechanism. Running the water and grinding lemon, lime or orange peels in the disposal leaves a pleasant, citrusy scent. A favorite is a solution of baking soda and vinegar. Pour a quarter to a half a cup of baking soda into the disposal and then pour in about the same amount of vinegar. Don’t run the water until the foam has started to descend back into the drain.
