Spring Cleaning Your Disposal

If you're like me, you're ready to do some spring cleaning. It is always to refreshing to go room by room and really clean everything down to the baseboards. I feel refreshed and look at my home in a new way afterward.

If cleaning your garbage disposal is not on your to-do list, you need to add it. And the good news is that it will only take you a few moments. Grease buildup can cause backed up kitchen sink drains, and this is the perfect time to get rid of it. Not only is it easy to do, it's quick as well.

Here's how:

  • Turn on the hot water then turn on your garbage disposal.
  • Squeeze a tablespoon of dish washing liquid in the disposal.
  • Run hot water for 15 to 30 seconds while the disposal is running.
  • Turn the disposal off, but continue to let hot water run until the suds are gone.

Stay tuned - next week I'll give you some additional spring cleaning tips.

Here's wishing you a world class day!
