Egg shells can clog up your plumbing. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help.
It’s that time of year when giant bunnies run around hiding eggs for children and adults to find. Those Easter egg hunts provide a lot of fun for adults and children alike. But, at the end, what do you do with the eggs? Well, if they’re chocolate or candy, you enjoy them. And if they’re real eggs, you can do a whole lot from making deviled eggs to egg salad.
What you should NOT do is put the shells in your garbage disposal or down the drain.
“According to a Consumer Reports survey of 1,040 people based in the U.S., about 33% thought throwing eggshells down the garbage disposal was okay. However, it’s important to note that along with grease, coffee grounds, and oyster shells, eggshells should also not make it down the drain. … [S]ending these shells down the drain after you make and enjoy your morning eggs could end up clogging the disposal, which is never a good way to start your day,” housedigest.com says.
Housedigest.com adds, “Let’s clear up the eggshell myth for good. … garbage disposals do not have blades as most people believe, and eggshells will not sharpen anything — but will cause damage to the impellers or help create clogs.”
Instead, throw out the egg shells or use them for fertilizer or something else.
If you do happen to toss those egg shells in the disposal or drain and you get a clog or other problem you can’t solve, it’s time to call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
