How do you freshen a garbage disposal?

La Crosse, WI, United States / KICKS 106.3
To clean, disinfect, and deodorize the garbage disposal with these two ingredients:
  1. Pour 2 cups  of baking soda into the garbage disposal drain.
  2. Slowly pour in ½ cup of vinegar.
  3. Let the cleaner sit for an hour.
  4. After an hour, turn on the water and the disposal and run it for a minute.
  5. Freshen up with lemon peels. Citrus peels contain powerful cleaners, and they make everything smell great. To make your garbage disposal smell like fresh lemons, juice a lemon and reserve the juice for another use. Cut up the peel into 1-inch  chunks. Turn on the water, turn on the disposal, and feed the lemon peels into the disposal a few at a time.
    • You can use any citrus peel for cleaning and deodorizing your disposal, including orange, lime, or grapefruit.
