Freshen up Sink Garbage Disposal



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')

  9. Hey, thanks for the advice, I was literally just thinking of buying one, as we end up with so much food waste in our bins. Do you know what we are able to put in there and what were not? Also what are the best one? We were thinking of maybe getting the waste king l3300.

  10. I love your way of recycling! And I absolutely love your raccoon photo. I know they are pesky, but they are oh so beautiful....It's been a very trying day here. I've been in a sort of "internet withdrawal" all day. It's bad enough that I have no access at work, but when I got home this morning my internet was not working. Oh woe is me!!
