In the kitchen many homeowners complain about unpleasant odors coming from kitchen sink drains. Food particles trapped in the disposer are the most likely cause. Run the water, then turn on the disposer. Pour in some ice cubes with half a cup of baking soda or lemon juice to eliminate most odors. Some leaks beneath kitchen sinks are caused by a loose connection on the sprayer handle. A simple twist to tighten it might be all that's required to stop a leak. More serious leaks around the base of the faucet probably require a rebuild kit containing new O-rings from the faucet manufacturer. Finally, if you're taking on do-it-yourself plumbing problems around the house, don't get in over your head. Know your limits and be careful. Some plumbing problems are best left to the pros.
