How do you properly use a kitchen garbage disposal?
Turn on a strong flow of COLD water
Slowly add the materials to be disposed of
Metal, large bones and fibrous materials should be disposed of in the trash
After disposing of the materials, leave the disposer on for one full minute with a strong flow of COLD water,
About once a week dump a tray of Ice cubes down the disposer while running, use care to prevent ice from popping back up into your face, use a small stream of water with this
Add any citrus peel to deodorize the disposer with the ice cubes
The ice cubes scour the inside of the disposer and remove the build up of waste food.
No grease, oil, fats or silverware!
