Our fragrances include both natural and safe synthetic elements to give consumers nature-identical fragrances at affordable prices. 
 
The ‘synthetic’ portion of the fragrance is very innovative.  It comes from citrus pulp (the white stringy stuff in citrus fruit) and terpenes* leftover by manufacturing in the pulp and paper industries which would otherwise be discarded as waste. So rather than throwing that out, they are scientifically changed into fragrant materials we use in our products.
 
*terpenes are the primary constituents of the essential oils of many types of plants and flowers. 
 
Because of the processing necessary to turn these substances into a form we can use in our fragrances we cannot call them “all natural” but actually what we are doing is better for the planet as we are upcycling what otherwise would be thrown out.
 
In addition, we practice the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) Code of Practice Guide which has a global commitment to providing fragrances that are safe for use by consumers and the environment.  
 
In addition to the IFRA set of standards, we abide by the California Air Resources Board, also known as CARB or ARB, is the "clean air agency" in the government of California, one of the strictest states in the US.

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.

  • Don’t Overfill: Most garbage disposals can fit approximately 2-3 tablespoons of food at once for grinding. If you have more than this, simply put the food into the disposal a little bit at a time. This can prevent clogging.

  • 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.

  • Don’t Use Hot Water: Always use cool or warm water with your disposal. Using hot water can melt fats and cause foods to stick to your grinder, creating a jam that will need to be fixed by a professional.

  • 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.

FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s wrong with just a lemon peel?

  • While citrus peels, such as lemon peels and orange peels, might smell good, they don't really clean. Putting peels in the garbage disposal puts unneeded stress on it as it works to grind them up. With Grab Green Garbage Disposal Freshener and Cleaner you don't have to worry about putting strain on your garbage disposal. Also, it doesn't just mask odor, it removes it!

Does it really clean?

  • The Garbage Disposal Freshener and Cleaner removes odors, prevents clogging and loosens grime. It does an amazing job at keeping the inside of your garbage disposal clean and your kitchen smelling great!

Does it “sanitize”?

  • Grab Green Garbage Disposal Freshener and Cleaner does not sanitize because it is made from naturally-derived, plant and mineral ingredients. It DOES remove odor, loosen grime, and prevent clogging.

Does it get out the smell?

  • Yes! It doesn't just mask odors, it really removes them.

How often do I use it?

  • For best results Grab Green recommends use the Garbage Disposal Freshener and Cleaner twice a week. But if you cook some especially smelly food, you can use it as needed!

 

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.
