Failing to maintain your garbage disposal can be bad news for your plumbing system. Additionally, a dirty unit probably won’t do any good for the smell in your kitchen. Check out this video clip for some quick tips for cleaning your garbage disposal.

When cleaning your garbage disposal, you’ll always want to start by turning on your cold water. Then turn on your disposal while the water is still running. Drop a couple of ice cubes in to help break down some of the debris that might be left in the disposal. With the water still running, cut up and add some lemon rinds for an extra fresh aroma.
