  • Fresh Garbage Disposal

    Here are two ways to keep your garbage disposal clean and odor-free:

    1. After you’re done with a lemon (whether you’ve juiced it, zested it or put it in water), cut it into small pieces and run the pieces through your garbage disposal.
    2. Run ice cubes through your garbage disposal.

    In both cases, run the water before you turn the disposal on to prevent pieces from flying out and hitting you.

    Another thing to do is run cold water when you’re pouring something really hot down the drain (e.g., when you’re draining your cooked pasta). It will protect the pipes from extreme temperatures.
