The other day I noticed a funky smell in the kitchen. At first, I thought it was the trash… but the closer to the sink I got, the worse the smell got… then I realized – it was the garbage disposal!
I’ve heard people say “you shouldn’t need to clean your garbage disposal because it’s self-cleaning.” Wrong. Just because it’s supposed to chop everything you put in there into tiny shards and wash it away like magic doesn’t mean it actually does that. Tiny particles get left behind, causing things to get a little gunky… and smelly. So here’s how you clean your garbage disposal.
