I had never, ever had a garbage disposal before, until my husband and I moved into this apartment. I think I like it. But it can smell a little unclean occasionally, so here’s a good tip I came across — put half a lemon down the disposal and grind it up. (Whether this actually does much towards cleaning it, I’m not sure, but it definitely makes the sink smell nice.)
That’s nice, but what shall we do with the other half of the lemon, you ask? Squeeze it into that pitcher of sweet tea that should be sitting in your fridge (assuming you’re a good Southern household), and then throw the rind away.
