Citrus Peels Can Deodorize Garbage Disposals

If you hosted a Super Bowl party, your garbage disposal may need some TLC (and a time out!).

Since Super Bowl Sunday is the second-largest day of food consumption after Thanksgiving, according to the American Institute of Food Distribution, your garbage disposal was probably working overtime. If your garbage disposal stinks, we have a simple, inexpensive way to give it a good cleaning and leave it smelling fresh.

You only need ice cubes and citrus peels to deodorize it!

It’s as easy as following these steps:

1. Pour a large bowlful of ice cubes and a cup of citrus peels - oranges, lemons or limes - in the garbage disposal.

2. Turn on the cold water and then the disposal for 30 to 45 seconds.

3. Then turn off the disposal and continue to rinse with hot water for 15 more seconds.
