How To Clean and Deodorize Sink Drains and Garbage Disposals
With all the stuff that goes down our kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room drains, it’s no wonder they’re so prone to foul odors, clogging, grime, and buildup. Thankfully, flushing these issues away is easy with just a couple of foolproof steps. Here’s how to do it…
Mix Up a DIY Drain Cleaner Once a week, stir together 1 cup of Scented Vinegar with 1/4 cup of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative and pour directly into your sink’s drain to eliminate buildup and dissolve stinky scents. Allow to sit for 5-15 minutes, then turn on the hot water for 5 minutes to rinse.
Dispose of Garbage Disposal Smells
First, flip off the garbage disposal and apply Dish Soap to a gritty sponge or cloth like our Copper Cloth or Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth. Scrub beneath the baffle (the stopper) to get all into all of the nooks and crannies. Continue around the top of the drain. Rinse thoroughly with warm to hot water, then sprinkle 1 cup of Scented Vinegar and 1 cup of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative down the drain. Soak for 5-15 minutes, then rinse with hot water for a few minutes while running the garbage disposal. Repeat weekly.
