Your kitchen sink isn't just there for washing dishes—it's an essential part of the food preparation and cooking processes that keep our food and our homes hygienic. During those processes, it's only natural that some food scraps will end up in the sink, and you'll have to scoop them back out unless you have an in-sink garburator that can grind them up and flush them through your plumbing drainage lines. But if it isn't working properly, you're back to scooping until you call your Mississauga plumber for Mississauga garburator repair services.

How Do I Stop Bad Odours From My Garburator?

If there are nasty smells wafting up from your kitchen sink drain, the culprit could be a smelly garburator. Your unit needs to be cleaned now and then to prevent food particles from building up inside and rotting, which is what causes those gross odours. On the bright side, these units are easy and even kind of fun to clean as you get to grind stuff up and don't have to scrub away at it. Here's what to try to eliminate those unpleasant smells:

  • Put a big handful of ice cubes into the disposal and add a few tablespoons of salt to give it some grittiness, then turn it on and let it chew up the ice. This not only helps to clean it out, but it can also sharpen the blades. Once the ice is gone, chase it down with a blast of cold water.
  • Cut a citrus peel into strips and feed the strips into the unit one by one with the cold water running.
  • Put half a cup of baking soda into the disposal and then pour in half a cup of vinegar and cover with a wet rag. Give it five minutes or so to fizz away, then rinse with cold water.

The reason why you should always use cold water when cleaning your unit is because hot water will melt any solidified fat, oil, and grease that is built-up inside the unit and rinse it into your wastewater disposal lines, where it coats the inside of the line and will eventually cause some really stubborn clogs. It's also a good idea to avoid putting any fibrous foods like corn husks or hard objects like fruit pits into your unit.
