Disinfect and Deodorize Your Kitchen Drain
Once a month or so, I disinfect and deodorize my kitchen drain. I learned this from my lady boss when I was still working with them. Here's how. I mixed a gallon of hot water with a cup of chlorine bleach and a tablespoon or two of any laundry soap. Then, pour the solution down the drain, then run the hot water for a minute or so. If the sink is cast iron, china, or solid-surface materials, mix up the solution in the sink, and then open the drain. You'll clean both the sink and the drain in one step. If the sink is natural stone or stainless steel, mix the solution in a bucket, and carefully pour it down the drain.
