Default Garbage Disposal

What is the best thing to do when your Garbage Disposal starts to smell and I've tried pouring bleach or squezzing a lemon but it wont go away. should I just take it off and clean it out really good and re-instale it?

Hi,

For common every day food odors from a disposal, try....to make your disposal smell better & to clean the blades, put in some ice cubes with either bleach, or lemon, lime or orange peels. Then grind for 30 seconds. Smells great!

For really bad problems.....Affresh Care...
Scrubs away food, grease and odors. Safe for septic tanks and drain pipes.
