Do you have a garbage disposal? Do you have problems with smell in your garbage disposal?

Do you spend money on deodorizing tablets to toss down the garbage disposal?

Well, let me help you with that...

Cheap Garbage Disposal Cleaner/Deodorizer

-- Slice lemons, put in one slice in each ice cube tray section and cover with vinegar.

Do not dilute it. Freeze, and then store the ice cubes in a Ziplock bag.

Pop one of these little cubes in the garbage disposal when needed, and grind away!

Jessica Lyn Larrew suggested: If you freeze them with coarse salt in the water, the salt will help clean your disposal blades too!

    the maintenance guy in my apartment building said that some of the odor problems in especially older garbage disposals, comes about because of gunk building up under the rim of the garbage disposal. he said when pouring your cleaning solution down, use a "new" toilet bowl brush to swoosh it around to loosen it up. said you may have to do this several times the first time you attempt to do this. but to do this every once in a while to keep gunk from building up and remember he said "new" brush only for the sink! :)
