Nothing says clean like the smell of fresh lemon. Manufactures know this, it is why so many house-hold cleaning products smell like the yellow, tropical fruit. The thing is – that wonderful lemon smell is just the surface, lemon oil and those wonderful acids that the fruit has in abundance really are effective cleaners…cutting through grease and sterilizing.
That is why one of the best ways to clean the blades on your garbage disposal is to simply run a lemon through the hopper and process it, like you would any food waste. It will cut any greasy build-up and leave your blades sparkling clean.
The side benefit? It will also leave your kitchen smelling lemon-fresh.
