Stinky Garbage Disposal?

Well, this may be a no brainer to some, but I discovered the cheapest and best thing for my stinky garbage disposal in my sink. It doesn't really help I guess that we are renting our home right now, so only the Lord knows what people before me have put into it!

So, I use orange peels, yup, and they're free! I just use either a butter knife or an orange peeler (love those things!!) and score the peel into 4 sections to peel it. I leave the peel on the counter to dry out for the rest of the day (enjoy the orange- this is the best part), maybe to the next morning. Once it's dry, I just put them into a plastic bag (we eat quite a few oranges as a family of 5 going on 6). They seem to last forever and when we don't get oranges for a while- price inflation due to off season times- we usually have plenty. Whenever my sink seems a little stinky, I just drop one or two in and run the disposal. Citrusy freshness galore! I just love it.

Yep it works great. Citrus cleans your disposal and ice sharpens it!
