How to Get Rid of Smells in the Sink

“A foul smelling sink is not only annoying but could also be a hazard to you and your family’s health. While it does not take much for your sink to start to smell terribly, luckily, it is fairly t’s a fairly economical fix and you can have your sink and kitchen back to normal.”

Keeping drains clean minimizes sink odor problems.


Foul odors can emanate from drains, especially in the kitchen where food debris can become lodged in the pipes and cause a rotten smell. Bathroom drains aren’t immune to odor issues, although they occur less frequently than in the kitchen. Weekly deodorizing prevents most smelly drain problems and can help prevent clogs, but occasionally you may need to manually clean the pipes to remove the odor-causing debris.


1. Remove the stopper from the sink and wash out any debris lodged in it. For popup stoppers in sink drains, move the stopper to the open position and lift it out of the drain. Remove the debris caught around the popup stopper, wash with clear water and return it to the sink.

2.  Pour ¼ cup baking soda into the sink drain. Add ¼ cup white vinegar. The vinegar and baking soda bubbles, removing loose debris and deodorizing the pipes. Allow it to bubble for five to 10 minutes.
