  • Tips To Keep Your Kitchen Disposal Working Smoothly
    A kitchen garbage disposal is a wonderful appliance, neatly disposing of all kinds of kitchen waste while saving time and keeping smelly food waste out of your trash. When a garbage disposal breaks it can be a real hassle, causing expensive plumbing and drain problems.  By following a few simple steps, you can keep your under sink disposal working smoothly for years to come.

    Garbage Disposal Maintenance

    You can keep your disposal clean by adding a little dish soap to some cold water and letting the garbage disposal run for a few seconds after washing dishes. It's also important to run your disposal regularly to keep the moving parts in good condition. An unused disposal can corrode and accumulate debris.

    Tips For Use Your Disposal

    • Run a full stream of cold water - This helps hold greasy waste together so it can pass through the disposal more easily.
    • Some hard foods are safe to put down the disposal - these include the smallest chicken and fish bones, egg shells, etc. These harder particles will help clean the inside of the disposal
    • Do not fill the chamber with food and then turn on the disposal. Always turn the water and disposal on before adding food gradually to the disposal.
    • Only food waste should be put down a disposal. Paper, metal and plastic can damage the unit.
    • Do not pour oil or grease down the drain. This may work for a period of time, but will eventually build up and clog the drain.
    • Grinding lemon peels can help reduce odors coming from the disposal.
