    Hi Doreen: Boil water and run it down the drain. This will help remove bacteria and food particles that lodge in the drain. Take the baking soda and pour a teaspoonful down the drain to help remove the smell. Meanwhile, do not stop pouring the hot water. If something is lodged in there, you can add some vinegar after the baking soda, cover the opening tightly for about 10 minutes and then pour really hot water down the drain. Sometimes food will make a metallic smell. Also, you can try rubbing down your sink with a cut lemon to minimize the smell. Good luck

      Good point, Ellis. Then, I would use hot water, not boiling:)
