A few weeks ago I shared with you how to make refrigerator deodorizers. Today I am going to start a new series called Quick Tip Tuesday. Today I am going to show you how to use your leftover Fridge Deodorizers to unclog your sink or to deodorize your disposal.
Quick Tip Tuesdays will be small tips I use that are quick and make your life easier. I very often get hair clogs in my bathrooms. With lots of hair no matter what I do by drains get clogged every few months. Likewise my kitchen disposal get's smelly from all the food we put down it.
These refrigerator deodorizers will freshen your fridge and last about 30 days so when I take them out I use them to unclog or deodorize my sinks.
First place the disk over the drain or in your disposal. I have laid this one on top of my disposal so you can see the fizzing action but normally I would put it down in the disposal.
Pour about a cup of vinegar on top. This will not dissolve the entire disk.
The fizz action will help to unclog your drains. You can see here the fizzing action. It is amazing how well these common household items work. If you don't have time to make the deodorizers you can just use 1/2 cup of regular baking soda and 1 cup of vinegar.
Run hot water for a minute after the fizzing stops. If your clog is really bad you may need to do a second treatment. When I clean my disposal I turn on the disposal with hot water running to finish cleaning it.
I hope you liked this quick tip and find it useful when your sink is clogged or a little smelly! If you have a great household or cooking tip I would love for you to leave me a comment.
