Do you have a stink coming from you garbage disposal and don’t know how to make it go away?

The stink is probably caused by food that was not completely dissolved and stayed in the disposal.

To fix this problem there is two things you can do right now to solve the issue.

Option 1:

  1. Grab a lemon or citrus fruit of your choice, slice up and dispose of any seeds. Put the slices of Citrus into the disposal and then turn it on.
  2. Turn on the cold water. The disposal should mash-up the fruit leaving a fresh scent.

Option 2:

  1. Pour 1/3 cup of baking soda down the disposal.
  2. Pour the 1/3 cup of white vinegar into the disposal.

It will foam and bubble. Wait for 5 minutes and then turn the water on.
