Has your disposal ever had that not so fresh scent? My mom’s uncle was a plumber, and would swear by this simple remedy for freshening a garbage disposal. This same method also works on minor clogged drains.
Simply sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda down the drain. Turn on the disposal and start pouring vinegar down the drain. If you remember from chemistry class, vinegar and baking soda will make some violent bubbling, and this bubbling action is what will get rid of those clogs and freshen up the garbage disposal.
My son loves making “sink volcanoes” with me. We go around to all of our sinks about once a month to clean the drains and prevent clogging.
