Garbage Disposal Tips, Tricks, and Myths
Your mom may have told you to throw cut up citrus into your garbage disposal to help get rid of odors and to clean the appliance. In theory, this might make sense, but the peels can also clog up your pipes. If you’re trying to keep your garbage disposal smelling fresh, pour a small amount of lemon juice into it instead. Another common myth you may have heard growing up is to run hot water when using the disposal.
For some reason this seems to make sense to people, but ideally, you should use cold water. This is because the cold water will help any grease or fat coagulate or harden, which allows the blade to chop it up. Hot water allows for grease to liquify only to cool down further in your pipes causing a blockage. However, don’t take this advice as a green light to pour grease into the drain! Finally, the ‘blades’ don’t actually need to be sharpened; they act similarly to a cheese grater and attempting to sharpen them with ice or salt will cause more harm than good.
