While buying cleaning supplies at WalMart I came across a product called Spring Again Garbage Disposal Cleaner. Thank you for keeping me from using drain cleaner. It is also possible to manually clean the inside of your garbage disposal using an old toothbrush or even a scrub brush designed for garbage disposals.

And do not be afraid to place your hands on the water, and bingo you’ll see that water that is coming out is pretty clean. Rinse your garbage disposal afterwards to see if this has solved the problem. Then rinse with vinegar and hot water.
Then turn on the machine with cold water running. Then turn on the hot water. As directed, I put a half box of baking soda into the drain, right through the standing water, then 1 cup vinegar, then a 2nd cup of vinegar, and followed that up with a pot of boiling water. Then put it back on the blender and start the machine for half a minute. Before you start with the deep clean, make sure the sink and drain area is clear of any objects. Make sure to buy one with it.

I use bar keepers friend to clean my sink. A sink that has exposure to spices contaminated with bacteria, dairy products, raw meat and fresh produce and items that touched goods that are contaminated, pose a health risk. First, turn off the fuse that generates power to the garbage disposal to eliminate the risk of the machine turning on when you reach down inside. There is always a risk of injury involved with waste disposal especially when dealing with heavy objects and disposing of debris. The other installation issue is that it is fairly heavy and may be difficult to hold. You can put a car jack or a wood block to hold it for you during the installation. You can also refer to your manual on how to clean your machine properly. Just putting lemon rinds in a garbage disposal and running it for a few seconds can help to keep your disposal clean and fresh.

These things may pass the food waste disposal while still clogging the pipes underneath. This thing will grind up virtually any kind of food very quickly since it has a nice amount of horsepower.
