How to Eliminate Garbage Disposal Odors

Step 1

Turn on the faucet and run water into the sink drain for 5 to 10 seconds. Do not turn on the disposal yet.

Step 2

Drop 2 to 4 tablespoons of Borax into the disposal drain.

Step 3

Allow the Borax to sit in the disposal without washing it away for at least 15 minutes.

Step 4

Boil a pot of water and pour it into the drain while running the garbage disposal.

Step 5

Drop peels from citrus fruits such as lemons, oranges and limes into the disposal and turn it on with water running.

Step 6

Allow the garbage disposal to run long enough to pulverize the peels. Flush it thoroughly with running water.
