Don’t Wash Garbage Disposal Destroyers Down Your Drains
The best thing you can do for your garbage disposal is to be aware of what you should and shouldn’t use it for. Turning it on while loose silverware is caught in it is a surefire way to damage the blades of your garbage disposal, and certain substances just shouldn’t go anywhere near it.
Keep an Eye Out for Common Culprits:
- Coffee grounds
- Celery stalks
- Fruit pits
- Grease and fat
