tucsonspirit tucson real estate: Freshen Up Your Garbage Disposal - 03/02/16 03:54 AM
The kitchen is a source of odors in the home. Some, like apple pie, are pleasing. Others, like the odor emitting from a kitchen drain, can hit you right in the gut.
To clean and freshen your drains, pour the juice from half a lemon and a handful of baking soda down the drain. Flush well with hot water. Garbage disposals are another part of the sink that can get stinky. To freshen your garbage disposal:
