How To Keep Your Garburator Smelling Good

Posted on: August 1st, 2013 by zach

The hot summer weather sometimes causes the leftover food in your garburator  to create some odors in your kitchen.

Here is a simple and easy way to clean your garburator and rid your kitchen of any smells coming from your kitchen sink.

Using a lemon or lime, cut it first in half and then in half again- throwing away the seeds into your garbage bin or compost.

Drop the slices of fruit into your garburator.

While running cold water, turn the garburator on. The grinders in the garburator will mash up the fruit and a fresh citrusy scent is produced, eliminating the smell.

If you do not have any lemons or limes around- pour a 1/3 cup of baking soda mixed with 1/4 cup of white vinegar down the garburator.

The mixture will foam and cause bubbles to come up your sink as shown in the picture below.
