With the Thanksgiving holiday over, now is a great time to clean and deodorize your garbage disposal – and you’ll be glad to know it’s simple and inexpensive. If you hosted a big Thanksgiving feast, your garbage disposal deserves some TLC.
You just need citrus peels and ice cubes – it’s that easy! I like to use oranges because they just smell so clean and fresh, but you can use any citrus such as grapefruit, lemon or lime peels.
You’ll want to follow these steps to clean and deodorize your garbage disposal:
1. Place a large bowlful of ice cubes as well as about a cup of citrus peels – oranges, lemons or limes – in the disposal.
2. Turn on cold water and then the disposal for 30 to 45 seconds.
3. Then turn off the disposal and continue to rinse with hot water for 15 more seconds.
I hope you’ll be delighted with the clean, fresh smell
