If your garbage disposal seems a bit sluggish, a buildup of grease and debris in the grinding mechanism may be to blame. Solve the problem by pouring a handful of ice cubes into the disposal and grinding them up. The frozen water will lubricate the mechanism and loosen the grease. While you're at it, eliminate any less-than-pleasant odors emanating from the disposal by grinding up a half cup of baking soda or some lemon rinds along with the ice.
