Hello party people!  Nobody likes a smelly garbage disposal so here is a super easy guide to cleaning yours and making it smell nice and lemony!  For this we will use items from the 99 of course!

What you need:

1 Cup White Vinegar

1/2 Cup Baking Soda

1 Cup Coarse Sea Salt


1 Lemon


2 Cups Ice


3 Cups Boiling Water



  1. Sprinkle the baking soda into the disposal and then pour in the white vinegar. Let this sit and fiz for a few minutes while you boil the hot water.
  2. Pour boiling water down the drain.
  3. Fill the drain with the ice. Pour the salt over the ice cubes. Run the cold water and turn on the garbage disposal until the ice is gone. The ice/salt mixture will help loosen the grime and debris from the grinding elements.
