Key Items to Keep Out of Your Garbage Disposal

To prevent plumbing mishaps and ensure your water runs smoothly during the summer, here are some crucial items to avoid putting in your garbage disposal:

  • Grease and Oils: These substances can solidify within your pipes, leading to blockages.
  • Coffee Grounds: Coffee grounds tend to accumulate and can create challenging clogs.
  • Eggshells: Though commonly misunderstood to be beneficial, eggshells can adhere to disposal components, causing odors and jams.
  • Starchy Foods: Foods like pasta, rice, and bread can expand and clog your disposal system.
  • Fibrous Vegetables: Items such as celery or corn husks can tangle and potentially burn out the disposal motor.
  • Hard Items: Bones and fruit pits are tough on disposal blades and can cause damage.
