FYI: I transferred the ice cubes into a freezer bag because they were so smelly!
Vinegar Cubes and Other Discoveries
Deodorize your garbage disposal by mixing 3/4 C water with 3/4 C Vinegar. Pour mixture into ice cube tray and freeze. Drop a few cubes down your disposal each week, followed by a cold water rinse.
As I did this today, I couldn’t help but notice how dirty that black piece of rubber was. So I grabbed a Clorox Disinfecting Wipe and started wiping it down. It was so disgusting! I’ll spare you the visual, but will say that I about threw up in my mouth a half dozen times. And it took a lot more than one wipe.
After cleaning the top side, I flipped the rubber inside out and reached down wiping all around in a circular motion.
Then I dropped a few more vinegar cubes down for extra deodorization! This is definitely going on my weekly cleaning list.
