If you’ve been struggling with pesky fruit flies and an odd smell in your kitchen, your sink and garbage disposal might be to blame. Good news: there’s a TikTok hack for that.
Content creator Deanna Hooker (@forkandhammer) took to the platform to share how she cleans and odorizes a sink as a realtor.
First, Hooker creates a garbage disposal odorizer. She cuts limes into small slices and places a few into a plastic ice tray. Then, she fills the compartments with white vinegar and lemon juice and freezes them.

As those are freezing, she creates a solution to clean the sink. She combines white vinegar, baking soda, dish soap, and a little bit of sea salt in a measuring cup. Then, she mixes it all together (it foams so don’t fill your cup completely) and spreads it over her sink. Using a scrubbing brush, she uses a bit of elbow grease and cleans the sink, but she doesn’t rinse. Instead, she lets it bake for an hour and then rinses it away.
