It’s important to clean a garbage disposal regularly to keep it smelling fresh and functioning properly. To clean a disposal DIY, first turn it off at the wall switch or breaker and then disconnect it from power at the sink collar. Remove any lingering food debris using a disposal scraper if needed. Pour baking soda directly into the disposal drain and grind it through to help scrub walls. Next, add ice cubes to help further clean as they grind up. Finally, run hot water with 2-3 teaspoons of lemon juice or white vinegar to deodorize. The acid helps eliminate odors. Reconnect power and run the disposal empty for 30 seconds to clear out. Regular DIY cleaning prevents foul odors and jams so the disposal runs smoothly.
