If it's the drain that stinks, use a flashlight & look down the pipe to see if you see anything in there. We had that problem a couple of times & it was from someone (a kid) dropping something down the sink & not telling us. Once it was a toothbrush & once a paintbrush. They can't go down the drain, so they sit there & gather slime & bacteria & get really gross! Once we took the elbow pipe off & cleaned it out, the smell was gone.

I usually use degreaser with a good, sturdy brush. I scrub inside drain let it sit 10min or so then turn on faucet on HOT and let it run for a few minutes.


Or you can also boil HOT water, I do this every 2weeks.

I put a small amount of chlorine with water down it. I haven't had a problem since.
