What are good samples to maintain your Garbage Disposal?

Maintaining your garbage disposal can help extend its lifespan and keep it running smoothly. Here are a few tips for maintaining your garbage disposal:

  1. Use cold water when running the disposal. Cold water can help solidify any grease or oils that may be in the disposal, making it easier for the blades to chop up the waste.
  2. Grind small amounts of waste at a time. Overloading the disposal can cause it to jam or break down.
  3. Avoid putting hard, fibrous, or stringy foods into the disposal. These types of foods can wrap around the blades and cause the disposal to jam or break down.
  4. Run the disposal regularly to keep it in good working order.
  5. Clean the disposal regularly by grinding a mixture of ice and rock salt, or by using a commercial disposal cleaner.
  6. If your disposal starts to emit a bad smell, try grinding a slice of lemon or a small amount of citrus peel to help freshen it up.
