Garbage Disposal Maintenance — What NOT to Put in Your Disposal

Clogged sink drains are a drag, but they can be avoided! Knowing proper garbage disposal maintenance will save you time, money, and frustration down the line.

We made this video to show you what food and waste products will cause a kitchen sink garbage disposal to clog. Avoiding these materials will ensure your disposal lives a long and healthy live, and you’ll be free of messy drain problems for good. Watch the video or read the transcript below:

Do NOT put these items into your garbage disposal:

  • Grease
  • Coffee Grounds and Tea Leaves
  • Flour, Pasta, Rice, Potatoes
  • Vegetable Peels

To flush the line, run the hot water from your faucet for about 15 to 30 seconds after you use the garbage disposal. This will keep the drain cleared and prevent garbage disposal failure in the future.
