Don't Pour Cooking Oil in the Sink | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Try reusing that cooking oil instead of dumping it.

You spent part of the afternoon at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and when you got home, all you wanted was a drink and some fried mozzarella sticks. You decided to indulge yourself and now you’re trying to decide what to do with a pan full of used cooking oil.

Whatever you do, don’t dump it in the sink. Cooking oil is notorious for clogging pipes and creating blockages that can be really had to get rid of. You could dump it in the trash. Or maybe, you could reuse it. But don’t reuse it before you clean it, says

“Have you noticed the small particles left behind from the dishes you create every time you cook …?”  asks. “These particles could be leftover batter or the skin of an ingredient that you may have fried. It is critical to remove these tiny particles before reusing the oil.” suggests two ways of removing those particles. One is to strain the oil though something like a coffee filter or cheesecloth. Another is to “heat the oil in a small saucepan. Then take sliced pieces of lemon and place them in the oil. The black particles will stick to the lemon. Take out the lemon pieces and use the oil again.” It is unclear if the lemon will flavor the oil.

No matter how careful you are, you might get a clog or blockage. If you do get a grease clog, you can try to clear it by pouring hot water or a plunger to get things moving again. If all else fails, then it’s time to call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
