        I have a garbage disposal installed in my kitchen sink. There is a musty smell coming from it. How can I get rid of it?

          Try grinding a lemon up in it. Or use baking soda it will help also.

            Dear Bruce,

            If the odors are caused by organic waste build-ups in the drain pipes and the garbage disposal unit (in general), you can use Bacteria Concepts’ DB-X100 on a regular basis to keep drain free-flowing and choke free. Since the live bacteria in DB-X100 degrade the
            organics in the pipes, the source of bad odors is also removed. For regular maintenance, a dosage of about 2 – 4oz. (60 – 120ml) needs to be applied into affected drain pipes, two to three times a week.

            We encourage you to contact us to order some product as a cost effective
            means to solve the problem.

            You will also receive detailed instructions on how to use the product to
            solve any problems you may be facing.

            Bacteria Concepts manufactures the highest quality bacterial products on the
            market. Each contains a scientific blend of multiple strains of naturally
            occurring active bacteria, which function precisely to solve a specific
            problem. The blend is synergistic, which means that all strains are
            compatible with each other and compliment each others activity. The strains
            are chosen to be highly resistant to disinfectants, sanitizers, and to hot
            water. This feature permits their use in any normal home, commercial or
            industrial environment without imposing undo restrictions on accepted
            methods or on personnel. All bacteria strains used are non-pathogenic (i.e.
            they do not cause disease) and thus, will not harm humans and pets.
            Bacteria Concepts products are non-toxic, biodegradable and hence,
            environmentally friendly.

            Best regards,
