Avoid the Following to Prevent the Garbage Disposal Drain Clogs

There are a few things to avoid in using your sink and garbage disposal to help reduce the chances of clogs or slow draining waste lines.
  • 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.
