  • What's the best way to really clean the garbage disposal? My dishwasher stinks and I think it's coming from the garbage disposal. I've cleaned the diswasher with vinegar and bleach. I even opened the little trap at the bottom (nothing was in there). So I figured I would try to clean out the gb to see if that helps. Thanks in advance!

  • My mom just puts ice cubes down there and crush it up.

  • If you dishwasher stinks then it may be set up to drain through your disposal and you may be having it back up from your disposal into your dishwasher. You probably should see if that is the case and drain them separately.

  • I pour a little bleach down mine and let it sit then crush up ice in it. A few good things to help keep things not trapped in them is coffee grinds and egg shells ground up.

  • I use ice and citrus peels- the ice will knock any stuff off the sides and blades and the citrus peels will help freshen things up.

    You can also dump some baking soda down there, let it sit, then vinegar- it will bubble up and fill the little chamber then flush it with cold water.
