Garbage Disposal Do's


Keep your garbage disposal in top shape with these kitchen do’s and don’ts. Never throw eggshells, pasta, or stringy vegetables, like celery, down your disposal. They will jam it. You can throw away a small amount of ice to keep your blades sharp and citrus peel to help it smell fresh. If something gets stuck, make sure the unit is turned off. Use a flashlight and metal tongs, not your fingers. Press the reset button afterwards, it’s usually right underneath your disposal. Use cold water while your disposal is running. Hot water breaks down fats, which cause clogs.
