Garbage disposals are staple in modern kitchens and most people can’t imagine life without it. It seems easy to toss pretty much anything down the drain, flip a switch, and have the disposal handle it for you. It keeps from filling up trash bags quickly and smelling leftovers in the garbage. However, garbage disposals have their limits and can get clogged if you’re not careful. Taking care of your garbage disposal not only relieves stress on the disposal but stress on your life and saves from potential clogs and problems in the future.
Now that we have gone over all the things that you can’t put in your disposal, you may be curious about what you can use your garbage disposal for. Think small and soft. These include small scraps of food, leftover pet wet food, or ice. The key is to stick to things that will not get stuck, cause clogs, or expand.
