How to Clean a Garbage Disposal?

November 9, 2021

A clogged sink is a common problem, and cleaning your garbage disposal can help prevent it. In order to do this, pour a cup of salt into the inner part of an empty blender container, then run hot water over the container until all the sludge has been removed from under the blades of your appliance - be careful not to let any pieces get stuck.

As another option, you could mix two tablespoons of baking soda per cup of warm (not boiling) water, then flush everything one more time after use according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Shut down the power

You should avoid grinding on the "teeth" of your disposal when cleaning it. When using too much force or pushing into an area with no teeth present, this can result in corrosion forming where no protective metal is present, resulting in our appliances malfunctioning sooner than expected.

Make sure not to touch anything except air while using your garbage disposal because, if something were ever jarred loose (like during transport,) nasty bacteria would escape spilling out all over everything around us and making people very sick fast due to their weak immune systems resulting from constantly going to hospitals.

Clean the Baffle

Apply dish soap to an abrasive kitchen sponge and scrub thoroughly under the baffle to get all into all of the folds and creases. Rinse the sponge frequently to remove all the gunk.

The grinding chamber must be cleaned

From top to bottom, swipe around the grinding chamber. Make sure the sponge is frequently rinsed. Once the sponge is clean, it can be used to clean the disposal's surfaces.

Your sink will probably be in great condition if you clean only these two areas. Adding baking soda and vinegar to the disposal or drainpipe will freshen them, but if you only want to deodorize, you can proceed to the final step of adding rock salt and ice (or read on for the vinegar method).

Protect the drain by covering it

Over the drain opening, place the sink stopper. In the same way as a kids' science class volcano (it's the same "lava"), baking soda and vinegar will fizz up. Fizzing baking soda is trapped inside the disposal by the sink stopper.

Remove the stopper, then run the garbage disposal while flushing the disposal with hot water. If the sink has two basins, you should clean both sides at the same time with the cleaner. Repeat the process with the other sink drain as well. If necessary, repeat each step.
