Helpful Tips for Proper Garbage Disposal Maintenance

We want to help you make sure your garbage disposal stays in excellent condition for as long as possible. If you want to clean your garbage disposal, we recommend using a few tablespoons of baking soda, followed up with a cup of white vinegar.

Otherwise, make sure you and your family members are careful to avoid putting these substances into the drains:

  • Non–foods. Any plastic wrappers, paper products, and similar materials belong in the trash.
  • Hard food items. As a general rule, only use the disposal for items you could, feasibly, chew with your own teeth. Keep meat bones, fruit pits, and other hard food items away.
  • Fibrous foods. Fibrous or stringy foods like celery, onion skins, and corn husks can get tangled up in the disposal, jamming the motor.
  • Rice and pasta. While the garbage disposal can certainly break these foods up and send them down the drain, they can still lead to clogging. Since these foods expand when they get wet, they may block up the drains and may allow for sewage to back up.
