If you have a garbage disposal, chances are, it’s not always april fresh. When ever there’s a funky smell in the kitchen, my first thought is to clean the sink and the disposal. The easiest way to do this, for me, is to make myself a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice and chop up the orange peels and put them down the garbage disposal. I chop them up to make it a little easier. There are wonderful, aromatic essential oils in the peel of the orange, and when these get squeezed or chopped at a high speed, the fragrance is released. Orange oil is also a great degreaser, so if you’ve dumped something oily down the sink, this is a good maintenance tip.
