Make sure your garbage disposal is clean. If you have a weird smell in your kitchen and you don’t know where it’s coming from, check the garbage disposal. Run some hot water through it and then place a couple of slices of lemon inside along with a teaspoon of baking soda. Let that sit for at least 30 minutes before turning it on and rinsing it out.
