With thanksgiving around the corner, i thought you might like to hear some handy-dandy tips that I got from the plumber, about how to properly care for your garbage disposal, so you don't have to go through what I went through.
-Don't put in celery
-Don't put in potato peels.
-Always use cold water when running the disposal. this keeps everything crisp & easy to grind.
-Afterward, run hot water down the drain for a few seconds to rinse everything though the pipes.
-Once a month, or so, fill up all your sinks with hot water (& someone else told me: a little bleach) & pull all the plugs, so the water can clean out your pipes.
