(Wasn't sure whether to post this here or in kitchens. Chose here!)
Our garbage disposal stinks. A lot. We regularly (at least once daily) flush it by dumping the dishwashing water, along with a stream of hot water from the faucet, down it while running it. We've tried lemons (there's a lemon tree in the backyard, so a plethora of lemons is at our fingertips), we've tried bleach, we've tried...lots of stuff. But it's mostly accomplished nothing.
It's not a very old unit.
There's very little waste that actually goes into it--and we're vegetarian, so the little that does slip past being scraped for compost doesn't involve rotting dead animal flesh.
But the stench... Wow. Any ideas on how to get rid of the smell?!
