If you have a garbage disposal, you know it’s a convenient kitchen feature, but did you know it is also an intricate part of your plumbing system? While they make food cleanup a lot easier, avoid nasty odors, drain clogs, and malfunctioning with these steps:
Clean your disposal regularly by pouring 3-4 tablespoons of Borax down the drain and let it sit a few hours. Without running the disposal, flush the Borax away with hot water as a natural sanitizer and cleanser.
Your garbage disposal is hooked up directly to your plumbing, and components are complicated and dangerous. If your disposal is not working properly – or not working at all – call a professional plumber.
