After eating an orange, don’t throw away the peel.
Citrus peels, including oranges, lemons and limes, can help deodorize your garbage disposal. Excess waste put down your disposal can cause an unforgiving odor.
To avoid a stench that can linger, try this simple tip to deodorize your garbage disposal:
- Place ice cubes in the disposal
- Add orange, lemon or lime peels
- Run the disposal with cold water for 15 to 30 seconds
- Turn the disposal off
- Continue to run the cold water for 15 seconds
This eliminates stubborn odors without harsh chemicals, leaving your sink smelling fresh and clean!
