This is a neat tip I saw on an episode of the Rachael Ray show from the other day. Eventually garbage disposal ‘sget gross and smelly and here is an easy way to get in there to clean it without using crazy chemicals. She also alluded to being able to un-jam your disposal this way – but I can’t test that so who knows.
You will need white vinegar and ice cube trays.
1. Freeze an ice cube tray full of vinegar.
2. When frozen put a handful of the vinegar cubes in the garbage disposal. Turn it on until it sounds clean.
