Nothing is better than a kitchen filled with an amazing sugary aroma from your holiday baking. However, that smell can easily turn sour with a funky sink. Continue reading to find a few tip/tricks as to why you may be experiencing a holiday mayhem.

Tip#1:Chemical Drain Cleaners Never use chemical drain cleaners even if it’s a well-known name brand. Any chemical cleaner can damage your drain pipes. In addition, the chemical smell mixed with old food particles and/or grease may create some strange smells.

Trick: Home made cleaners Using hot water, baking soda, and vinegar can definitely get the job done

Tip#2: Sink Structure Gunk and Grime can get stuck in other places in a sink aside from the pipes. The most common culprit is an aerator cap, which is a small portion of metal where the water comes out of the faucet.

Trick: Use pliers you spin off the cap.

Then check and see if gunk has built up and gently remove it with a toothbrush.

Tip#3: Extremely Strange Smell Once you complete the first 2 steps and you still are experiencing the smell specifically an egg smell you may be encountering sulfur.

Call: Contact your utility provider and get the water tested for you and your family’s safety.
