Garbage disposals are great to have in any household because they prevent stinky garbage cans and make clean up after an evening of cooking a breeze. How can you ensure that your garbage disposal continues to work properly and efficiently? You must be very careful about what you send down your disposal.
Garbage disposals are meant to break down foods and send them through the pipes. Just because you may think something is safe to put into the disposal does not mean that it is. The following items should never be placed in the garbage disposal:
- Fat or Grease
- Stringy Vegetables
- Potato Skins
- Whole Fruits or Vegetables
- Coffee Grounds
