I have heard that if you grind up some citrus fruit it will take the smell away. Orange rinds, lemon rinds, grapefruit rinds.
Thank you but I've done that plus some little lemon balls I bought at the store but still smells.
Try boiling about 3 big pots of water and pour it down the drain Quickly. Be mindful of splashes! Ground up dibris gets stuck in the drain and starts a stink. Also make sure you a run a hard water stream for a few seconds longer after you use the disposal. Helps to flush the pipes.
I agree with Gk, orange, lemon , and grapefruit rinds will get rid of nasty odors, flush well with water.
But, that did not work, or at the very least temporarily. So, take a look at thei link and see if you can do anything that it suggests:
There may be gunk (bits of paper, tea bag strings, etc. ) and food residue caught between the folds of the rubber rings or stopper.
Turn off the power breaker to the unit.
Wearing rubber or nitrile gloves, clean inside and in-between the rubber folds with wet paper towels and bleach ,or another disinfectant.
Turn the power back on and flush thoroughly with vinegar and very hot water.
Have you thought of using a suitable disinfectant through the system? Milton?? Maybe ask the manufacturer for their suggestions..........
Hello Yoli, hope this helps you
Baking Soda and Vinegar
Turn on the garbage disposal and pour 1 cup of dry baking soda down, along with a cup of distilled white vinegar, to help remove strong odors. In a pinch, vinegar can be used on its own along with cool water
A couple things I do is throw a couple ice cubes in there and half lemon and run it for a minute. They also make these scented balls called Plink that deodorizes the garbage dsposal.
I have also used Roebic Drain Cleaner in my garbage disposal overnight, add a capful to warm water and throw it down there overnight, then run hot water in the morning.
Hello Deb and Sharon thank you for your suggestions I will be using them, Thank you
Yes! We have a friend who is a plumber. He says ice cubs are great at "cleaning" garbage disposals. Also Orange peels work well! It cleans and helps it smell better. :)
Grind lemon or grapefruit in it after you have thoroughly cleaned.
I use fruit rinds to clean mine.
