What should I do when my garbage disposal smells?

There are different ways to get rid of the annoying smell coming from your garbage. Firstly, grind up your food scraps right away with col water and run your disposals long enough.

Secondly, avoid disposing of banana peels, coffee grounds, potato peels and eggshells into your disposal. They lead to drainage issues and unpleasant smells.

While bleach seems like a good idea for cleaning your waste disposal, it hardens grease and other food particulates in your pipes, creating clogs.

Plumbing Experts suggest using one of these natural combos weekly to keep your disposal smelling fresh: hot water and baking soda, hot water and dish soap, or hot water and vinegar.
