Help! My kitchen appliance is making my home stink!


My kitchen appliance is making my home stink!

What do you do if your appliance is working great, but it is making your house smell bad? This is a common problem with dishwashers, especially.

One place to check is the strainer at the bottom. Are chunks of food collecting there? If so, you’ll need to clean it out. Then try the vinegar and baking soda trick: Spread baking soda on the bottom of the dishwasher, and pour vinegar around on top of it. It will get bubbly, and as it does so, it will clean out the gunk that has built up. After you’ve let it set for 10-20 minutes, run the dishwasher and let it dry. Another cleaning agent to try is Glisten. It’s a powder you can buy in small packets and run through the dishwasher like you would with powder dishwasher soap.

If your garbage disposal is the source of the stink, try running pieces of citrus peels through it. Use small chucks, as some disposals have a hard time grinding up large pieces. You also could pour fresh lemon juice into it and let it set for a bit. Or use the vinegar/baking soda technique: Sprinkle a bit of baking soda down the disposal and pour a cup or so of vinegar on it. Let that mixture bubble and fizz for 10-20 minutes, then flush it out with warm water. Repeat if needed.

As always, you’ll want to be running your AirRestore Air Naturalizers in the problem areas. They are great at taking care of unwanted odors in the home. The Air Naturalizer creates a charged flow that cleans the air like Mother Nature does outdoors. The result is fresh, clean air that doesn’t smell like spoiled food or garbage (or pets, grease, cat litter odor or cooking smells, as the case may be).
