How can I get rid of the bad smell in the kitchen sink drain?

A foul odor emanating from your kitchen sink drain is not just unpleasant but also a sign that action is needed. Often, this issue stems from accumulated food particles, grease, and bacteria in the drain. To tackle this problem and freshen up your sink, try these straightforward solutions:

  1. Boiling Water: Pouring boiling water down the drain can help dissolve and dislodge the buildup causing the smell.
  2. Baking Soda and Vinegar: A mixture of baking soda and vinegar acts as a natural cleaner, breaking down residue and neutralizing odors.
  3. Citrus Peels: Placing orange or lemon peels into the garbage disposal and running it can leave behind a fresh, citrusy scent.

Prevention is key to ensuring your kitchen sink remains odor-free. Avoid disposing of grease and food scraps down the drain and use a sink strainer to catch debris. Regular cleaning and maintenance of your sink and garbage disposal are essential for keeping odors at bay.
