Garbage disposal clogs can be irritating, to say the least. Your best defense is to avoid them.

You spent the morning at the walk/run at Withlacoochee River State Park. When you got back, you were fantasizing about a nice lunch. But while you were fixing it, your garbage disposal clogged. You managed to unclog it, but it spoiled your mood.

“Troubleshooting your disposal is not difficult but avoiding clogs and unnecessary kitchen drama is always more desirable than fixing a garbage disposal,” says. “And the best way to avoid disposal repairs you bring on yourself is to avoid clog-producing usage and properly maintaining your disposal. It really could not be simpler.” offers these four tips to help keep from clogging your disposal or kitchen sink:

  • Do not grind up potato peelings. They will form a starchy paste similar to mashed potatoes when ground up and will surely clog your drain.
  • Do not grind up banana peels. These are a similar problem to potato peels except they also add stringy fibers to the mix. Not good.
  • Do not put coffee grounds or eggshells into your disposal. They create very tiny granular waste that will stick to any sludge in the pipe and quickly create a clog.
  • Do not put ground glass in your disposal to ‘clean’ it. It will not sharpen the disposer’s cutting blades, it will not clean your drain pipes and will not easily drain.”

Of course, no matter how careful you are, sometimes clog happens. And when they do, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber
