lemons: good for your disposal too

20140124-114103.jpg

one of the things I love most about the kitchen/pantry is how many things are so versatile. Home remedies for burns, dry hair, cleaning, dry skin and a million others. It’s also a good way to prevent yourself from wasting money.

My garbage disposal sees a lot of action. It also sees a lot of nasty, odor causing germs. Does yours?

I always keep lemons in my refrigerator. They are a little gem of mine. Once I use them for their juice, I simply scrape out the pulp. Turn your hot water until it’s good and steamy, dump your pulp down and run your disposal. All that citrus helps kill that bacteria plus leaving your sink smelling clean.

Another idea for good disposal cleaner? Baking soda. Pour a few tablespoons down then run the hot water. If I’m feeling the need I will do both lemon pulp and baking soda on the same cycle.

What are some of your favorite disposal odor remedies?
