Do’s and don’ts when running your garbage disposal unit
- Do: Run very small pieces of citrus peels through your disposal unit about once a month. This will help clean out the inside and keep your garbage disposal running smoothly.
- Don’t: Run your disposal with the water off. This could cause damage to your unit.
- Do: Use COLD water when grinding up vegetables, not hot water. Hot water breaks down the food and could gum up the works inside your unit.
- Don’t: Use cold water when rinsing greasy or fatty pans. HOT water is a must when it comes to greasy or gummy items. Let the disposal run for a few minutes (with the hot water flowing) after you’ve washed a greasy or fatty pan. It safest to dump large amounts of grease in the trash but after washing greasy pans, run lots and lots of hot water. Your garbage disposal might survive, but your drain lines might clog up.
Last but not least, if your dishwasher is backing up into the sink, check your disposal before you call an appliance repairman. Often the backup is caused by a problem with your garbage disposal, not your dishwasher.
