Is it just us or are garbage disposals potentially the root of all terrible smells in the house? In a quest to stop it at the source, we found three all-natural SUPER easy fixes that truly work to keep scents at bay (or, in the can). So the next time you have a huge dinner party and want to seriously refresh the place afterwards–try one of these options and let us know how it worked!

  1. White Vinegar & Lemon Ice Cubes: In an ice tray, add small lemon slices and white vinegar, freeze. Then drop a few into the sink, start running some water and turn on the garbage disposal.
  2. Baking Soda & Hot Water: Pour 1/2 cup baking soda down the drain and 1/2 cup boiling water, let sit for 20 minutes. Then run water and turn on garbage disposal.
  3. Salt & Citrus: Peel a handful of your favorite citrus, drop in the drain along with 1/2 cup coarse salt. Run warm water and turn on garbage disposal.
