A great way to deodorize and sharpen your disposal naturally is with three simple items.
All you need are some ice cubes, lemons and baking soda. You don't have to use whole or unused lemons either. I use the ends of my lemons or after I grate them. I love to use the lemons after I make detox water or lemonade.
Just toss into your disposal 4-5 ice cubes, fresh lemon (I often bring home lemons from my drinks when I
got out to eat) and a Tablespoon of baking soda. Run down your disposal and you will have a fresh smelling and clean disposal while sharpening your blades at the same time.

okay so does the baking soda used for cleaning the blades and for oxidation?
My husband I put together this Bar/China/Buffet area, now it's time to add some finishing touches.
*My motivation to do this project:
A back splash would add more character and light. I was thinking of making some kind of shadow box with lighting from behind or some kind of water feature would be very cool and interesting. Would this be too much with the busy granite counter?

i appreciate all the information this group has extended to me--i now know how to get free
parking - hoping this senor mind recalls it next time too.. last show home depot gave free tickets.. at least the senior gets a ticket at $5 -- i really do not mind paying as someone has to support it either the goers or the sellers..
very well thanks -- Intelliflo -- Pentair -- 011012 - unfortunately water got to the inside of
the pump head where the electronics sit... past the 1 year warranty so they said they would not cover it; this time I have purchased a 011018 which is less expensive but is the same product but runs a bit differently. I like efficiency as could be seen with all I have done here at my house.
want to increase the flow a little and wondered if I could do it on my own. I was told a particular lever in my garage was the water pressure valve, but I'm a bit weary of touching it without any prior knowledge. Any suggestions?

Well your replies are all very interesting. i would enjoy more pressure at the shower head -
I took out the little device they put inside of the shower head to slow down the amount of water you use - it helped but not much. i am use to more pressure - have another house up north -
There is no device where the water comes into the house. I have finished my garage. The water meter for this development is in the ground out near the street.
the solar water heater is much better. i put more panels than called for on my roof here in
florida --put up 8 panels.. if u r here in orlando i would suggest calling Nick Arseneaux at Superior Solar in Longwood. Tell him I suggested it -- he is a great person .. he use to install these systems for Superior and now sells them. The panels they have are individual tubes which here in Florida can be great since we have heavy winds.. other companies like All Solar has only panels which must be fastened to the roof. and hope they dont blow away... you can visit their headquarters where Nick could show everything to you.
I can heat my pool to the high 90s... like a spa -- you will have heat most of the year here in florida -- I am in Kissimmee.. you are welcome to come to my house to look at the system here if you so desire.
all the best.. yet perhaps u have one already as i just saw you put this posting here in April.. should have looked earlier at that line.
also need data on Whole House Water Filtration System -- do not wish to use Salt and would prefer not to have to Back wash the system - Any ideas of which system you might suggest. I
have come up with a couple of ideas but want to see what else is available. Many thanks

the other thing about scale blaster is it does not remove the chlorine from the water so you
still have that taste -- this might not be a problem in the area where you live but i dislike the taste here in Florida however in my Mass home the taste of the water is very good. All depends on location.
Chili Pepper i heard from an outfit here called Westbrook Plumbing. The fellow said years ago he had worked for Culligan - found by putting this device at the furthest point in the house bringing the hot water there would therefore benefit other house locations too or you can put in multiple devices. the push button i would think would be good at the kitchen sink since that is the point where u use the hot water but perhaps not constantly. and yes one needs a certain amount of flow to get the tankless to start working which perhaps might be a problem. the one advantage we have here in central florida is the water is coming to us at about 70 degrees so less amount of heat needed to raise it to the necessary temperature.
appreciate your thoughts on scale blaster... please put some water into the dog's bowl. or other dish .. and let it sit to see if it calcifies or not --
thing is in NJ -- perhaps your water is not hard.. certainly in MA it was not hard at all whereas here -- sinks and shower glass doors get to be horrible looking..
