Grease and Garbage Disposals
Garbage disposals were invented nearly a hundred years ago and can now be found in almost half of all homes across the US. If you’ve ever had a garbage disposal in your residence you may know it can be quite costly to repair. While you can dispose of many organic items down the drain there is one well-known enemy of the garbage disposal, grease.
Grease can cause a myriad of problems around a kitchen and nothing may be worse than clogging up a drain pipe. And just because you have a garbage disposal doesn’t mean you can dump that oil or grease down the sink. Best practice is to avoid letting either of those substances down any drain including one with a garbage disposal.
But now you’re standing there with a bunch of grease and wondering what is the best way to get rid of it. You can start by letting any grease that can re-solidify. By allowing it to cool or set you can then just scrape it into the trash. As for oil you can refrigerate it to harden it and then dispose of it. Or you can pour it into any non-recyclable container that is destined for the trash.
And since your garbage disposal is grease and oil-free you can maintain its cleanliness by making sure you utilize Arm & Hammer Garbage Disposal Cleaner. These nifty little capsules deodorize your sink with the power of baking soda and leave a fresh citrus scent.
