How to clean your garbage disposal

August 28, 2011

When life gives you lemons(or oranges or limes), freshen your garbage disposal!
Anytime I am cooking with lemons, I save the lemons, slice them up and throw them in the garbage disposal. It is a natural way to freshen your yucky disposal.
Also, feel that your garbage disposal blades are getting dull? Throw some ice down there and let er’ rip!
That’s my two cents for today.

    Another tip, if your disposal “dies” and won’t turn on at all, before buying a new one, use a wooden handle (like a broom) to turn the blades. Then check your disposal motor (under the sink) and press the reset button.

    I paid $85 for a service call to learn that trick so I thought I’d share it 🙂

    that lemon tip is one of my favorites! i try to remember to do that, too.
