How to Deodorize Your Sink Drain

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand why toilets might become stinky.

A smelly sink drain, on the other hand, might be more difficult to pinpoint. But make no mistake, your sink is a haven for bacteria and scum buildup, which leads to foul smells. Air fresheners and candles can only go so far. A smelly sink can be a sour spot and bring the energy down in your space. That's why we recommend deodorizing your drain. Get at the root of the problem, don't try to cover it up with Febreze.

How to deodorize your sink drain

Step 1. Try to remove the source of the problem, which is likely buildup. Pay attention to the way your sink drains. If it seems to drain slowly, you probably have a clog on your hands. If that's the case, your first step should be using a drain clog remover — like these packs — that will open up your drains. If your drain is moving fine, a clog is likely not the issue and you cane move on to the next step.

Step 2. Once you've removed the source, a drain deodorizer is probably the best option for removing any gross smells emitting from inside your pipes. Pick up something like these drain deodorizing sticks. They're easy to use and will keep your drains smelling nice and fresh.

It's as easy as that. Avoid the pricey plumber and handle it yourself. We will say, however, if the problem persists after routine maintenance, you might want to call a professional.
