Do's and Don'ts of Food Wste Disposer

Food Waste Disposer Do’s: 

Do keep your Food Waste Disposer clean. Pour a little dish soap inside and let the Food Wsste Disposer run for a minute or so with some cold water after washing dishes.
Do run your Food Waste Diposer regularly. Frequent use prevents rust and corrosion, assures that all parts stay moving and prevents obstructions from accumulating.
Do grind Food Waste Disposer a strong flow of cold water. Why cold water? It will cause any grease or oils that may get into the unit to solidify, so that they can be chopped up before reaching the trap.
Do grind certain hard materials such as small chicken and fish bones, egg shells, small fruit pits, etc. A scouring action is created by these particles inside the grind chamber that cleans the garbage disposal’s walls.
Do cut large items into smaller pieces. Put them into the garbage disposal one at a time instead of trying to shove a large amount in at once.

Food Waste Disposer Don’ts: 

Don’t grind glass, plastic, metal or even paper.
Don’t grind anything combustible.
Don’t grind cigarette butts
Don’t pour grease, oil or fat into your Food Waste Disposer or drain. Grease will slowly accumulate and impede your Food Waste Disposer’s grinding ability as well as clog drains.
Don’t use hot water when grinding food waste. Hot water will cause grease to liquefy and accumulate, causing drains to clog.
Don’t grind extremely fibrous material like corn husks, celery stalks, onion skins, and artichokes. Fibers from these can tangle and jam the garbage disposal motor and block drains .
Don’t turn off the motor or water until grinding is completed. When grinding is complete, turn off the the Food Waste Diposer first. Let water continue to run for at least 15 seconds, flushing out any remaining particles. Then turn off water.
Don’t put too many potato peels down the Food Waste Disposer. The starches in the potatoes will turn into a thick paste and may cause blades to stick.
Don’t put large amounts of food down the Food Waste Disposer. Feed food into the Food Waste Disposer a little at a time with the cold water running; this will help the food scraps flow down freely through the drain pipes and plumbing.
Don’t put expandable foods into your Food Waste Disposer. Foods like pasta and rice expand when you add water in a pot; they do the same thing once inside your pipes or garbage disposal and are the cause of many jams and clogs.
Don’t grind large animal bones (beef, pork etc.).
Avoid putting coffee grounds down the Food Waste Disposer. They won’t harm the Food Waste Disposer and they’ll actually help eliminate odors. However, they can accumulate in drains and pipes, causing clogs. Best to avoid.
Don’t use harsh chemicals like bleach or drain cleaners. They can damage blades and pipes. Borax is a natural sink cleaner and sanitizer that effectively works on odor-causing mold and mildew that accumulates in garbage disposals.
