    I use some coffee grounds and use them with disposal turned on and some water from faucet running to clean. I then take some lemon just a few small pieces and grind them in the disposal. Always run disposal with some water running.
    This is an old way of doing this.
    Remember lemons must be very small, so you don't end up with rinds stuck in your disposal.
    Good luck and be careful

    Cut up a lemon and toss it in there. If that's not enough, try baking soda and vinegar-- shake in the soda and pour the vinegar on top; after it finishes foaming clear it away with boiling water.

    First, a lot of food gunk sticks to the underside of the rubber flap on top of the disposal opening. Use a tablespoon to reach under it and scrape off the gunk. Wipe the spoon on a paper towel and continue until all is gone.

    Second, pour baking soda into the disposal while it's dry. Follow by pouring white vinegar in. You will hear sizzling and see some wispy "smoke" from the chemical reaction. This mixture dissolves biologic scum such as hair, food remnants, etc.

    Finally, run the disposal and throw several ice cubes in while it's running. This helps to break up any leftover caked on gunk to run down the drain. Finish it up by grinding some citrus fruit skins for a nice fresh odor.
