A Few Helpful Garburator Maintenance Tips
Here are a few things you can do to ensure your garburator remains functioning properly for as long as possible:
Keep your garburator clean by pouring dish soap in and letting it run for a few minutes after you’ve washed your dishes in the sink. Don’t ever use a harsh chemical to clean your sink/garburator. This can cause damages to the blades and/or pipes.
Try to remember to use it regularly, as this prevents rust and corrosion.
Use cold water when grinding foods, as cold water helps to solidify greases and oils for easier disposal.
Try to cut larger pieces of food into smaller bits and put them down the garburator one piece at a time to prevent clogs.
Don’t ever try to grind anything that’s glass, plastic, metal, paper or combustible. In addition, it’s not recommended that you grind cigarette butts or coffee grounds.
Try not to grind expandable foods such as pasta or rice – they can be the cause of many clogs.
Don’t grind large animal bones or anything with fibrous materials, including husks, celery stalks, onion skins, etc.
