Whether you revel in it or loathe it, spring cleaning is most likely on your to-do list. To tackle everything from icky grime to those sources of suspicious scents, we’ve scouted all-natural DIY solutions that will get your home in tip-top shape for the season. This weekend, draw your attention to an oft-neglected corner of the kitchen: it’s time to freshen up the garbage disposal.
Citrus peels (whichever scent you favor: orange, lemon, lime)
Muffin tin or ice-cube tray
Put strips of your citrus peels into the muffin tin or ice-cube tray, fill with vinegar, and freeze. Once frozen solid, pop them out and transfer to a lidded container in your freezer. To use, drop a cube in the disposal and turn it on. The ice chopping will keep blades sharp, while the peels release a fresh scent.
