Clean and Freshen Your Garbage Disposal With Arm & Hammer



When you think of cleaning and deodorizing your home, you naturally think of Arm & Hammer Brand, right? Arm & Hammer Baking Soda has been a staple in homes for many years, but they have branched out and developed other products designed to keep your home fresh and clean with ease. One of those products is their garbage disposal cleaner. 

This is a collaborative post in partnership with Arm & Hammer 


I seem to be the go-to from friends and family when it comes to a lot of "around the house" tips. This is probably in part to my 50's housewife personality. So I wasn't surprised to get a text one day asking how to clean a garbage disposal. Let me be clear, I never lived in a home that ever had one. But it seemed like it would be a simple solution. And it was. Which involved running water, some ice cubes, and a lemon. But that's more steps than the average person wants to take, especially if you live a busy life and need something quick. That's where Arm & Hammer Garbage Disposal Cleaner comes in. 

I've suggested to those who have asked me, that it's best to clean your garbage disposal pretty regularly- at least twice a week as recommended by Arm & Hammer, but if you don't use your disposal much, bi weekly or once monthly should be fine. If not, you run the risk of those tiny fruit flies and gnats which can be a real pain to get rid of, and cleaning with these little capsules are quick and simple. You get the clean disposal and citrus scent without having to cut up a lemon or make sure you have ice cubes handy. 

To clean your garbage disposal with the Arm & Hammer Garbage Disposal cleaning capsules, simply follow three easy steps:

  1. Run disposal and water for one minute. This is going to help dislodge and rinse out any food that might still be stuck in there. 
  2. Turn off the disposal and reduce water to a slow stream. 
  3. Drop one capsule into the disposal and let disposal run for 15 seconds. This is going to break up the capsule and release the cleaner. 
That's it. That's all there is to it! Now your sink is clean and smells delightfully citrus scented! 

This product is septic safe when used as directed and can be found at your favorite major retailer, or you can purchase a 12 pack of capsules on Amazon
