How to Spring Clean Without Cleaning Out Your Wallet
Deodorize Garbage Disposal with Citrus Peels
Vancouver, BC (April 20, 2009) – As you consider spring cleaning think twice before throwing away citrus peels. It’s a nifty way to save money on cleaning supplies during this sour economy.
“The next time you eat an orange or cook with lemons and limes keep the rinds,” said Mary Kennedy Thompson, president of Mr. Rooter Corporation. “You can use the peels, along with ice cubes, to clean and deodorize your garbage disposal.”
Odors form when food debris builds up in the garbage disposal. But getting rid of the smell can be a simple and inexpensive spring cleaning project that can save homeowners money.
Mr. Rooter service professionals suggest these steps to clear the air:
- Place a cupful of ice cubes as well as citrus peels – oranges, lemons or limes – in the disposal.
- Turn on cold water and then the disposal for 15 to 30 seconds.
- Then turn off the disposal and continue to rinse with cold water for 15 more seconds.
