This Hack For Cleaning Your Garbage Disposal Is Going Viral

Have you ever smelled an unpleasant odor coming from your garbage truck? This viral hack claims to be the way to solve it.

This new kitchen cleaning hack has gone completely viral on Tik Tok. The best part about this hack is that you don’t have to go out and buy new cleaning supplies, you just need ice and hot water.

Tik Tok videos like this one show you how to supposedly clean your disposal. All it takes is pouring ice cubes down the drain, turning on hot water, and starting the disposal.

The video results show an unpleasant brown liquid coming out of the sink. But does this hack really work and get rid of the smell? Well, yes and no.

Here’s what he has to say about the viral cleaning hack, according to Mark Dawson, Chief Operating Officer at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing.

“While ice cubes have always been cited as a source for cleaning up a disposal, that doesn’t necessarily mean the viral hack is doing what homeowners expect: removing the unpleasant odor. Ice cubes can help sharpen the disposal blades and remove food stuck underneath, but without the addition of a deodorant like lemon, the odor could linger.”

Another thing to watch out for is the amount of ice you put down your drain. Putting too much ice in the sink can do more harm than good.

So my main takeaway from this hack is that it can help, but you should proceed with caution.
