Frequently asked questions

Are you supposed to clean out your garbage disposal?

If you periodically clean your garbage disposal, it can prevent a bad smell from taking over, and can also potentially extend the life of your disposal. To clean, run rock salt and ice through it, or you can try baking soda and vinegar as well.

should you run water when you’re using your garbage disposal?

Absolutely. It washes the food particles down the drain, preventing buildup of food and food smells. The only thing a garbage disposal actually does is pulverize your food into very small particles – it’s up to you to get rid of them by washing them down the drain.

What should I not put down my garbage disposal?

A sample listing of what NOT to put down your garbage disposal could include: Coffee Grounds, Animal Bones, Nuts and Shells, Pits and Seeds, Onion Layers, Egg Shells, and Fibrous or Stringy Fruits and Vegetables. Basically, you don’t want to run anything through your disposal that you couldn’t actually eat. if you wouldn’t eat it, don’t put it down your drain. Plus some that you would eat (celery, potato peels, etc.)
