Frequently Asked Questions About Garbage Disposals

What should I never put down the garbage disposal?

There are plenty of things that should never go into a disposal. Plastic, metal, wood, and glass are at the top of the list. You should also avoid inserting fibrous fruits/vegetables, grease, seeds, pits, nut shells, eggshells, potato peels, and dry, expandable foods.

Should I sharpen my blades?

No, do not sharpen your blades. The blades within the garbage disposal are intentionally dull by design; this helps pulverize food as the blades spin. You will diminish the unit’s performance and shorten its serviceable life span if you sharpen the blades.

How do I safely remove objects from the garbage disposal?

Never stick your hand into a “live” garbage disposal. First, disconnect the power and then attempt to dislodge any obstructions using a pair of tongs or another tool.

How do I clean my garbage disposal?

Cleaning a garbage disposal is pretty easy. First, insert some lemon peels and a little white vinegar, and baking soda. Allow these to sit for about 10 minutes. Then, insert some ice cubes and run the disposal. This will remove any debris and leave your garbage disposal smelling fresh and clean.

How long will my garbage disposal last?

This depends on the make and model as much as it does the way you use it. As a general rule, a well-built garbage disposal that is properly cleaned and maintained should last around 10 years.
