  • I know how you feel....I went through the same thing. I usually use drainO to make sure that it is all cleared out after that a little bleach so there is no mold growing in there then to get rid of the bleach smell lemmon juice. Works great for my house. Good luck and hope this helps

  • I scrape out as much food as possible into the trash can before I do the dishes, but sometimes I cant get it all. We have the little food catchers and it catches well at least most of it I think, and i dump them every day. I'll try tthe draino, beach then lemon juice. I just hope it doenst turn into an everyday thing. that could get expensive!

  • Baking soda, just like what you put in the fridge. Just pour some down the drain.
