What Items Can Cause Damage In A Garbage Disposal?
First and foremost, always be careful what you dispose of: glass, metal, and plastic will cause problems, as will grease or fat of any kind. Don’t throw bones into a garbage disposal, unless it’s the large and powerful commercial kind that can take care of them. Use cold water when you’re operating a garbage disposal, as hot water causes a liquefying action in solids that will lead to clogs and backups.
Other very bad foods for garbage disposing include fibery or starchy waste such as potato and carrot peels, rice, pasta, corn husks, garlic, and onion skins. The starches in these foods will expand and accumulate and form a solid ball of nastiness that will make a permanent pit stop on its way down to the main line. Even a good disposal can’t grind thin fibers down, and there’s an excellent chance they’ll eventually get into the motor, causing a motor burnout or at least a jam.
Chemicals, bleaches, and drain cleaners are disposal no-nos; they can degrade the metal blades in the machine, and aren’t healthy for your pipes. Always take care to finish grinding whatever you’ve dropped into a garbage disposal before you turn it off, and then run cold water through the mechanism for 15 or 20 seconds. This helps the waste get to where it should be going.
