Arm & Hammer Baking Soda.
To freshen the smell of a garbage disposer, instead of throwing out
that old box of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda that’s been sitting in the
refrigerator or freezer, gradually pour it down the drain and flush
with water. Or better yet, pour two tablespoons Arm & Hammer Baking
Soda down the garbage disposer every week.

clean a garbage disposer, pour Clorox Bleach down your sink, being
careful to avoid splashing any bleach on your skin. (Do not pour
bleach down your sink if you have a septic tank; otherwise the
bleach will kill the beneficial bacteria.)

Fill an ice cube tray with Heinz White Vinegar, place in the freezer
until frozen, grind the ice cubes through the disposer, and flush

in the freezer to prevent anyone from using the cubes of frozen
vinegar in a tall glass of iced tea.
