How To Clean Your Kitchen Disposal



Hi Divas

Some of us have  garbage disposal, if you do then try this ,I found it in  a web site for home tips .

To clean  your  disposal,try this , it has a fresh smell without being overwhelming.

Sink garbage disposals are a wonderful modern invention, but they inevitably breed foul odors from within.

The retail  cleaners are  expensive for their job, and the effect never seems to last very long. Here’s what you need:

1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup baking soda

Heat lemon juice in microwave for 30 seconds. Add baking soda slowly (it will bubble) and mix well.

Turn on the disposal and pour down the drain. Turn on hot water for a few seconds to

rinse away any mix remaining in the sink or the bowl. Use weekly. If disposal still has a bad odor, repeat.
