Garbage Disposal Tips

  • Be sure to have the water on before you start feeding the food in the disposal and make sure the food is all ground up before turning off the disposal and the water.
  • Avoid putting too much in the disposal at one time, as this can clog the pipes and cause a backed up sink.
  • Also, do not put any stringy items in your disposal, such as corn husks or celery.  These items do not grind up and end up clogging your unit.
  • If you ever want to clean your disposal, you can do so by running an entire container of ice through it.
