How To Unblock A Clogged Garbage Disposal ?

Instead of calling the plumber the next time your garbage disposal clogs, try to fix the problem yourself. First, unplug the garbage disposal. Then, use a broom handle to manually rotate the blades. The broom handle gives you enough leverage to turn the blades even if there is a clog. Once the blades turn freely, remove the material that caused the clog. Only use your hand if you are sure that the power is completely disconnected. Once the clog is removed, plug the disposal back in, press the reset button, and turn it on. The unit should now work properly.

Can you put tea bags in a garbage disposal?

Of course there is no rule against it; however, you do not want to put certain things in your disposal. Potato peels can clog it, for instance. Also, throwing tea bags into your disposal is a bad idea as the strings on the teabags may wrap around the unit's hardware which can affect the performance of the disposal as well as the dishwasher (if it is hooked up with the garbage disposal).

What is proper way of garbage disposal?

If you have a septic tank or gray water system in your home then do not install a garbage disposal because it has been know to clog up your drain field. If you have city sewer and have a garbage disposal then I would recommend that when using the garbage disposal, you make sure you are running cold water because it helps make vegi's not stick to the sides of your drain and its cheaper and I forget but something to do with spaghetti and disposals don't mix.
