The garbage disposal is a great tool that helps you keep your kitchen clean and running smoothly. But are you preventing your garbage disposal from running as smoothly as possible? Along with knowing the basics of drain cleaning, it’s important to know what you can and can’t put down your garbage disposal.

As you’ll see in this video, there are a lot of items that you should never put down the disposal. These include eggshells, fibrous vegetables, fruit pits, bones, rice, pasta, grease, and shortening. These items can build up and decrease the efficiency of the disposal blades.
