- YES, you can put potato peelings in garburator. However, add them slowly and allow them to process so you do not clog the appliance.

Uh huh, Yup ,Certainly , Sure can, yes with out any doubt,

Yes, you can. Just make sure to have the faucet on whenever you put something down the garbage disposal. Never put bones down the garbage disposal.

Raw cabbage leaves should not be put into the garbage disposal as it will badly plug up the disposal. Other items that should not put into the garbage disposal include banana peels, onion skins and celery.

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).

RE-Use RE-Duce RE-Cycle Recycle Fruit and Vegetable peels.

To deodorize a garbage disposal you can either put some baking soda in the drain and let it sit for a while or my favorite is to run lemon peels through the disposal after you do the dishes every night. You can use orange peels, too. Just make sure the pieces are small enough to run through without clogging it.

You can put them a garbage disposal, with the exceptions of banana peels and celery, or if you live in a rural area, you can leave them in a proper area for chickens or birds. Or, you can simply throw them in the trash.

Not a good idea as they tend to stick between the rotating disc and the casing, causing blockages that are hard to remove.

you can put it in your garbage,banana peels and other fruit peels you can put them in a composter.

Here is advice and input: * Putting orange and lemon peels down the garbage disposal makes the drain, sink, and entire kitchen smell fresh and clean. No one likes a smelly drain, and recycling these peels as air freshener can make your entire kitchen smell citrus fresh. Older citrus fruits that may be going partially bad, can still be cut up and put into the garbage disposal. If you don't have a disposal, orange and lemon juice with warm running water can keep your drains smelling fresh.. * If your garbage disposal is stong enough, its a very good idea to put orange or lemon peels down it to make it smell good. * Putting orange peels down a disposal is a GREAT idea. It rids the disposal of the disgusting smell. I wish I would have tried it sooner! * Alternatively, pour a half cup of baking soda into the drain, and then pour some white vinegar on top of it. This will foam, cleaning the area and making it smell fresh. Why waste the orange peels? Keep them and dry them out. If you have a fireplace and are going to have a fire one night throw some dried orange peels in. It makes your home smell nice! Also, you can use the dried orange peels and put them in netting and hang a little in closets, drawers, or in your bathroom.

Broccoli is too fibrous to put in the disposal.

Yes, and as with other citrus fruits, they help the disposal smell fresher. No, just broke the disposal by doing so. The repairman said not to put any fruit peels down the disposal. I suppose it might differ depending on the quality of the disposal, but you can take your chances and pay the repair bill if you like.

Yes, you can put both eggs and eggshells in the garbage disposal. Placing a lemon in the disposal is a great way to remove odors.

Take out the garbage disposal, clean it out completely and properly and snake the line with the disposal out and then put the disposal back and all will be fine.
