Eco-Friendly Drain & Garbage Disposal Deodorant

May 12, 2010 by  
Filed under Sense & 'Cents'ibility

Vinegar is a huge cure all in my house! It’s cheap, non allergenic, versatile, eco- friendly, doesn’t smell of  funky artificial fragrances (yuk)  and did I mention cheap!!  A gallon cost $3:84 at my local superstore.

Here is another wallet friendly tip for your kitchen and bathrooms. To clean and deodorize your drains and garbage disposal unit mix equal parts of vinegar (any will do except balsamic but plain white vinegar works best) and baking soda and pour down the drain.  Leave the mixture to fizz for a 3-5 minutes (the effervescent quality actually spreads it around more),  and flush the drain/ flush and pulse the disposal unit with warm water.  The added abonus is fruit flies don’t like it.

*Remember to pour down both sides if you have a double sink.

Do you have any money saving tips to share?
