Halloween's Coming - Watch What You Put in the Drain | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Cooking for the holidays? Be careful what you put down your kitchen drain and garbage disposal.

October is best known, of course, for Halloween, the holiday that ushers in three of the other biggest holidays of the year – Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year. Halloween also ushers in a two- to three-month cooking frenzy with home cooks creating cute seasonal cookies, cakes, pies and other foods.

If you’re one of those creative home cooks or bakers, you have to be careful or you’re liable to discover that you have a Halloween gremlin in your garbage disposal or kitchen drain. That’s right, be careful what you toss or you could create a clog, or worse, break your garbage disposal.

Delish.com lists several items you should never put in your garbage disposal. Prime among them are fats, oils and grease, otherwise known as FOG. FOG will not only gum up your garbage disposal, it will block your drain and pipes as well. Other items your should avoid putting in the garbage disposal – egg shells; large seeds like peach and avocado pits; stringy vegetables like celery; coffee grounds; and bones, which will “just keep spinning around and around with the blades. And if you’re lucky enough to get them down, they definitely won’t make it down the drain pipes.”

Of course, sometimes mistakes happen and you toss something down the drain, garbage disposal, or toilet that should not go there. If that happens and a clog forms that you can’t get rid of by yourself, it’s time to call the trusted 24-hour Tampa Bay plumbers at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
