Why You Should Never Pour Grease Down the Drain

If there’s one thing every homeowner ought to know, it’s that grease and drains don’t mix. Even pouring a small amount of grease down a drain can result in a plumbing crisis. Grease and other oils contain fats that will harden and block your plumbing pipes. Eventually, you’ll have a backed-up drain on your hands, and you’ll need to phone for a plumber. If you have grease left over after cooking, you should let it cool and then throw it away in a garbage bin. Never wash a pot or pan until you have properly disposed of any grease.
