Start with a disposal filled with gunk. Yuck.
Step 1: Drain some ice with kosher salt. The ice cleans the food off the blade while the salt scrubs it.
Step 2: Scrub the rubber part with a scrubbing brush. So much food was flying everywhere when I did this...never realized there was so much gunk around the rims till I cleaned it real well!
Step 3: Citrus really freshens up the disposal in the grinder. I thought I'd also add some ginger to check what the fragrance is like. I liked it, smelled like ginger tea, but the lemon fragrance was definitely over-powering. Other citrus fruits can also be used. I tried grapefruit last time and it smelled wonderful!
Run the water when you turn on the disposal switch
And revealing the after!
Caution! Warning!: You will need to stick the ice and the lemon etc down the sink using something (I used the end of a bottle brush). Do NOT attempt to do this while the switch is on. Hands should be away from the sink while the grinder is running!
(Hey, I could've gotten sued or something. Just sayin')
