Does this work on the drain hose (air gap) between the dishwasher and disposal? I cleared mine but it still smells.

Asked by: TC
Hi TC, Thank you for your inquiry. The Foaming Garbage Disposal Cleaner is formulated to clean garbage disposals, kitchen sinks and eliminate foul drain odors. The thick foam surrounds the disposal blades and interior parts cleaning and dissolving the hard to reach grime. The foam dissipates and may not reach the drain hose between the dishwasher and disposal. The best product for your application is the Zep Commercial Liquid Drain Care Buildup Remover. It contains concentrated enzymes that dissolves years of buildup inside the pipes. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Support Team at 1-888-805-4357. Best regards, Zep Commercial Retail Technical Service

Does it work in an unused garbage disposal?

Asked by: ASB
When sprayed into the garbage disposal, the Zep Foaming Garbage Disposal Cleaner will cling to the inside of the disposal and the blades to assist with cleaning. If you do not run the garbage disposal, you would need to be sure and rinse thoroughly to remove the cleaner from the inside of the unit. If you have additional questions regarding the product and how it works, please give us a call at 1-888-805-4357 and we will be happy to assist you. Zep Commercial Retail Technical Services

There wasn't much left in the can, but I needed to get rid of the bad smell. I closed off the left drain and sprayed the disposal side. There was a little foam left, but mostly fog was left in the can. When the can was done the drain no longer smelled bad. I did not use it as directed this time because there wasn't enough foam to fill the disposal. There was just enough for some foam on the disposal top, and I continued spraying what looked like fog from the can into the bottom and let it sit. No more bad smell. This stuff works for me. I'll be going to get more soon so I am ready for the next bad smell. I've tried lemon stuff, and also baking soda and vinegar. They don't work, even after several applications.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smells great but doesn't remove stains As a plumber I had really really high expectations for this product. I imagined how great it would be to offer this stuff to my customers after freshening up the kitchen and leaving them a sparkling disposer. So I tried it on a stained sink. Rinsed it off... still stained. So being a guy, maybe I didn't leave it on long enough. So I put on ALOT more foam and let it set for 15 minutes. Still nothing. The stuff smelled great, but functionally, it's a dud.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks like Whipped Cream But don't eat it! In the past, for my smelly old disposal, I've used Pine-Sol, which is very strong but clean-smelling---but it didn't really keep the disposal smelling nice for more than an hour, but this ZEP foam seems to clean the grime better. Just spray into the disposal (see photos) and wait 15 minutes. I rinsed with hot water. The only objection is that the orange scent is so slight, I would prefer a stronger scent myself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells Like Oranges, Worked For Us This is a pretty good product. I have used it twice and it got rid of the odor. Since I can not see what is in the disposal, I can not say if it cleaned it. But what I can say is the musty water smell is gone. You simply point the nozzle in to your disposal, wait ten minutes and then turn it on and rinse it with water. It began to foam on contact and it smells a little like orange peels. Very pleasant and not too over powering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works on the parts you can't see Do you absolutely need this product? Maybe not. A good dose of hot sudsy water with the disposer running does nearly the same job. But the foam cleaner has one thing that water doesn't. Read on. The strength of the foaming cleaner is that if used as directed, it fills up to the brim and gets underneath in the sections you can't see. This does help for long term fresh smells. The orange smell is very pleasant. One negative is you have to spray a lot of foam in the disposer to properly fill it up to work effectively. Here's a tip that worked for me: apply it at night before bedtime, and then wash it down in the morning. It seems like the longer it sets, the better, even though the foam eventually disperses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good performance and very easy to use. Well, plenty of us have had to deal with a nasty or foul-smelling garbage disposal, and there's no shortage of suggestions on how to solve the problem. One of the things that always bugged me was that nothing ever seemed to address the issue of the gunk that was stuck to the bottom side of the rubber drain flange (If you don't know what I'm talking about, pull that thing out of the sink sometime and take a look at the underside). Cleaning suggestions like baking soda & vinegar, those little balls, or the packages of sudsy cleaner just didn't seem to be able to address the problem in my mind. But this stuff reminds me of spray foam insulation; you spray it in the disposal, and it expands and fills up the entire cavity, including the underside of the rubber flange. The concept made sense, but I wasn't so sure how effective it would be, but what could it hurt to try? So I gave it a shot, and I have to say I'm impressed. After one use, the disposal had an almost imperceptibly faint citrus scent that faded away quickly. In my mind, this is exactly what you want, because if the "fresh" smell hangs on for a while, it means that a) you've got some serious chemical residue hanging around in the disposal and in the air you're breathing, and b) that chemical has to have something to cling to for you to still smell it, right? A cleanser should rinse out of the disposal along with the gunk it was supposed to be targeting; if you can still smell the cleanser for very long after using it, then that means it must be stuck to some garbage disposal gunk that was supposed to be washed away, and what you're smelling is covering up the regular odor of that gunk. With this ZEP stuff, I don't smell ANYTHING in my disposal anymore - no citrus scent, no gunk, nothing. To me, that says the disposal gunk has actually been cleaned out, not covered-up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cleaner This product is extremely easy to use & does a great job at breaking down the gunk that's built up inside your garbage disposal. I looked down the disposal with a flashlight before & after using this product, and the difference was impressive! It doesn't leave behind much of a scent like some of the disposal cleaners I've used before do, so if you're expecting your kitchen to be lemony fresh, you might be disappointed. However, aside from a lingering fresh scent, I don't think this product could be improved upon. Easy to use and effective - that's hard to beat!
