Use A Dishwasher Tablet To Deodorize Your Sink In A Pinch
The simple solution to unclog and eliminate odors from a smelly kitchen sink drain is a commonly accessible kitchen item: dishwasher tablets.
Containing special ingredients called surfactants, the dishwasher tablets can dissolve oil and grease from surfaces, and their alkaline compounds can also
break down grime.
Place the tablet directly at the plug hole, or if you have a garbage disposal, drop it down the drain as far as it will go, then pour hot or boiling water down the drain.
Pour enough water to fully dissolve the tablet, including its polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) film, and your kitchen sink will smell fresh as well as function properly again.
