How to Clean Your Garbage Disposal

drain cleaning maple grove mn | plumber minnetonkaYou may clean the dishes in the sink, but do you clean the drain itself? These tips will help you keep your garbage disposal clean and free of stinky odors.

How to Clean Your Garbage Disposal:

  1. Sprinkle baking soda into your disposal. Then add one cup of white vinegar. Boil some water and pour the boiling water down the drain.
  2. Pour a cup of ice into your drain. Then run the water and turn the garbage disposal on until the ice is gone. The ice will help loosen up any debris that might be clinging to the disposal blades or to the walls of your plumbing pipes.
  3. Cut a lemon into small pieces.  Turn the water in your sink on and keep the garbage disposal running. Drop the lemon slices into your garbage disposal to help deodorize your drain and keep it smelling lemony fresh.
