Your kitchen seems smelly, so you take out the trash. You close the fridge. You spray air freshener, and you bake some cookies. But nothing improves.
Ever thought to peek down your sink?
The kitchen sink's garbage disposal chops up food and washes away crumbs, but it can also collect bits of debris that linger, harboring bacteria and producing a fouler-than-foul scent.
For this reason, it's important to give your sink a clean-out every week, whether you have a garbage disposal or not. Follow these easy steps (if you don't have a disposal, skip the last two), and your nose will thank you.
