Hello, garbage disposal-possessing people of America. As anyone who’s ever experienced a foul odor emanating from their sink knows, with garbage disposal ownership comes great responsibility. That’s why it’s important to clean your system regularly to make sure it’s in tip-top shape and as fresh-smelling as possible. (We have a whole guide on that. See: How To Clean a Garbage Disposal.)

One way to freshen up your garbage disposal is to chop up a lemon and run it through the system with the water running. Another option? These Glisten Garbage Disposer Fresheners.


Buy: Glisten Garbage Disposer Fresheners, $13.50 for 10

For $13.50 a pack, you’ll get 10 marble-sized pods that you toss down the disposal along with a stream of hot water whenever it needs a little freshening up. According to the company, it rinses away “tough grunge and foul odors while freshening the whole kitchen.”

It’s a bestseller on Amazon and more than 1,000 shoppers vouch for it. Here are a few glistening reviews. (Get it?)

“This product was a lifesaver! My roommates and I recently moved into a new apartment, and we noticed a gross smell coming from our garbage disposal. We wanted a quick and easy solution to the smell, and let me tell you, these little guys do the trick! After following the simple instructions, our garbage disposal went from smelling like trash to lemon candy (not kidding)! Amazing purchase, 10/10 recommend!”

“I love this deodorizer for the garbage disposal. In my apt building the disposals literally stink !! I looked and looked for something to take care of it, but nothing worked, until this ! I loved it so much I bought one for my friend in my apartment building who loves it as well.”

“My husband and children constantly put food waste down the drain and don’t run the disposal. This makes for a disgusting build up of rotting food. I ordered these as I had tried several other things to freshen our disposal/drain and nothing else had worked. I have no idea how these tiny little balls work but they do and that’s what counts. You really only need one. They totally clean and freshen disposal drains. Love them!”

Have you ever used these in your garbage disposal?
