If your garbage disposal is smelly, put two cups of ice with one cup of rock salt or vinegar into the garbage disposal, and engage the garbage disposal with cold water running. Let it run for five to ten seconds before turning it off. If there is a clog, remove any large objects using tongs. Then, plug the drain and fill the sink with four inches of cold water. Remove the drain plug and run the garbage disposal to clear the debris. Watch the video for more garbage-disposal cleaning tips.
