Spring Cleaning Tips

The change in seasons brings one of my favorite activities, spring-cleaning. Whether it is clearing out your desk or dusting your baseboards, no spring cleaning job is too small!

As you're drafting your to-do list, you should make sure your garbage disposal is on it. Now is the perfect time to get rid of your garbage disposal's bad breath. (That's what we like to call the unpleasant smell here at Mr. Rooter Plumbing). It's a quick and easy fix that makes your sink smell fresh and clean.

All you need to do is follow these steps from Mr. Rooter Plumbing:

1. First, you need to pour a large bowlful of ice cubes and a cup of citrus peels - oranges, lemons or limes - in the disposal.

2. Next, you need to turn on the cold water and then the garbage disposal for 30 to 45 seconds.

3. Finally, turn off the disposal and continue to rinse with hot water for 15 more seconds.

Here's wishing you a world class day!
