Tips for Using Your Garbage Disposal
Many people think disposals are hardier than they really are. The real purpose for this appliance is to dispose of small bits of food remnants down the sink. They are not made to dispose of large amounts of food items when you’re cleaning out your refrigerator.
Here are some ways to avoid needing garbage disposal repair:
- Do not put fibrous foods down the drain, such as broccoli, melon rinds, onions, and the like.
- Do not put more than a few tablespoons of soft food down the drain at one time.
- Do not pour grease or fat down the disposal.
- Do not turn the disposal off before the grinding is complete.
- Avoid putting starchy foods like potato peels, a lot of rice, or pasta down the disposal. (They turn into a paste.)
- Never grind non-food items such as bones, glass, or plastic.
