Using common household items from your kitchen or medicine cabinet, you can easily clean your garbage disposal in ten minutes or less using one of the following six DIY methods listed below.

If you already have ice cubes in the freezer, pour two cups ice cubes down the drain, followed by one cup rock salt and run the garbage disposal, followed by 5 to 10 seconds of cold running water.
