What’s wrong with just a lemon peel?

How Do Garbage Disposals Work?
Understanding why Garbage Disposal Freshener & Cleaner pods work comes down to understanding the garbage disposal itself, its inner workings, and why naturally derived-ingredients can give you a better clean.
If you had to guess you would probably say that a disposal works like a blender; cutting food into small pieces that easily fit down the drain. But, that isn’t quite how it works. Garbage disposals actually don’t have blades, instead food is thrown against a grind ring over and over again until it’s broken down to tiny particles.
This is why your disposal should be cleaned correctly. Not only can grinders get dirty and promote the growth of bacteria, but they can also lead to a very foul smell. Our Garbage Disposal Cleaner pods break down easily against grinders and get into every crevice, emitting a fresh scent and helping to keep the garbage disposal in working order. Plus, with no harsh chemicals, they are gentle on your grinders, keeping your garburator working perfectly.
How to Get Smell out of Garbage Disposal
Dealing with a smelly garbage disposal can be an unpleasant job, especially when you don’t know how to remove smell from the garbage disposal. Throw away your homemade recipes, “safe” chemical cleaners, and dissolving citrus balls that just don’t seem to do anything. Stop asking yourself what you can use to clean a garbage disposal, and pick a product you know will work every time, to remove odors, grime, and leave your disposal sparkling, no matter what’s been down it in the past.
Clean your Smelly Garburator—Without Harsh Chemicals
When looking for smelly garbage disposal solutions, avoiding chemicals and harsh fumes should be your number one priority. Not only can they adversely affect your health, but they are a big cause of environmental harm.
In the US alone, nearly 6.2 billion pounds of cleaning chemicals are consumed yearly and most all of these chemicals can have an adverse effect on the environment. They pollute water sources, killing wildlife in lakes, streams, and ponds; and can seep into the ground, making it almost unusable for anything but dumping.
Traditional garbage disposal cleaners use plastic casings that not only hurt animals but don’t dissolve, leaving bits of plastic anywhere they travel.
By using a green alternative you can be sure that no harsh chemicals will be used and that the pods will dissolve; making them a very eco-responsible option.
Garbage Disposal Cleaning Tips
Dealing with a smelly garbage disposal can be a tough job. But by keeping up with garburator maintenance you will eliminate foul smells, cut down on grime, and ensure that your cleaner and freshener is performing at it’s highest potential. For easy garbage disposal odor removal follow these quick maintenance tips.
Always Grind Food Completely: Wait until the disposal is done to turn it off. Food build-up can not only cause clogs, but can lead to growth of bacteria, mold, and cause odor.
Rinse: After grinding all your food, run the water for another 30 seconds to ensure all waste has been washed down the drain. This prevents the growth of bacteria on leftover food scraps, which can create odors.
Clean It Once a Week: Every week make sure you are using a garbage disposal cleaner to clean out particles of food waste, freshen up the grinding chamber, and prevent clogging. Our garbage disposal pods only take a few seconds to work and are a green, effective way to rid your disposals of smells and grime. Simply throw one in, grind it up, and your good to go! Cleaning your disposal once per week will keep it fresh and bacteria free.
