Step 2: Put six ice cubes into the chamber.
Step 3: Add a tablespoon of baking soda.
Step 4: Add three thin slices of lemon.
Step 5: Add a teaspoon of bleach.
Step 6: Add six more ice cubes.
Step 7: Turn the garbage disposal on without running any water. Wait until the grinding stops.
Step 8: While the motor is still running, rinse the disposal with cold water for about half a minute.

How to Clean Sink Drain

Food scraps add to faster deterioration to your sink drainer and garbage disposable. Since the sink drainer is an important component, it’s also important to keep it clean by removing whatever food scraps and other particles go there.  To clean your sink drainer, follow these steps:

Step 1: Remove the splash guard from the sink drain.
Step 2: Prepare a cup of baking soda mixed with water until you create a paste.
Step 3: Use The Crown Choice detailed brush to scrub the splash guard, paying close attention to any buildup.
Step 4: You can also clean the splash guard in your dishwasher too.

Note: Pay attention to the joint that connects the sink to the disposal as bits of food can easily get stuck here which can lead to molds.

Step 5: Put a few fruit peels like from oranges and lemons in your drainer and garbage disposal
Step 6: Grind in your garbage disposal to remove the smell.

Note: The citrus juices are also useful for cleaning the blades.

How to Get Rid of Odor from Garbage Disposal

Stubborn smells may still linger even after give your garbage disposal a good cleaning. If that is the case, you will need tougher solutions for it.

Step 1: Lift the rubber flaps then pour half a cup of baking soda down the garbage disposal drain.
Step 2: Repeat until the entire drain cannot accommodate baking soda anymore.
Step 3: Pour half a cup of vinegar down the drain.
Step 4: Let the solution sit for an hour.
Step 5: Run the disposal and add cold water for rinsing.

Warning: This cleaning method should be done sparingly because vinegar is acidic in nature which can damage the rubber components of your garbage disposal.
