Don’t throw those lemon wedges in the trash

Yes, I’m a fan of McAllister’s Deli, but this is not meant to be commercial endorsement for them. For anyone that is familiar with McAllister’s sweet tea, you can request to have a lemon wedge added and these tend to be on the large size. If you’re like me, that sweet tea will make it home. Instead of throwing that lemon wedge in the trash when you’re done with your drink, put that in your garbage disposal and grind it up, but don’t run the water right away. Let the disposal sit for a minute to let the lemon juice and rind freshen up the grinding chamber of your disposal. Be sure to run the disposal again after grinding up the lemon wedge with plenty of cold water for a few seconds to flush the “remains” down the drain.

‚ÄčIf you have a stinky disposal and don’t have any lemon wedges handy, a handful of ice cubes can do the same thing or you can try equal parts of baking soda and white vinegar.
