Don't Let Your Garbage Disposal Interrupt Your Holiday Dinner in Marblehead
Cooking, cooking and more cooking … it’s holiday time and large dinners with family and friends will be happening soon all over Marblehead. For many of us, it is the one time of year that we all come together and enjoy a beautifully cooked meal.
But what if your garbage disposal clogs up your sink? That’s the last thing you want when you have hungry guests waiting to enjoy their holiday dinner.
Here are just a few tips to keep your garbage disposal running smoothly.
Pour cooled oil and grease in the garbage can over some paper towels, or pour it in a can you plan to throw out! Don’t pour oil or grease down the garbage disposal even when running hot water. Remember that the fat and oil you had left from cooking those delicious meals will not stay liquid forever. Don’t let it turn solid in your pipes!
Never throw meat bones down the garbage disposal. If you can’t chew it, your garbage disposal isn’t going to want to either.
Stringy vegetable leftovers can get tangled up in your garbage disposal. Celery, asparagus, onion skins and potato peelings are better put out in the trash, or better yet in your compost can.
If it’s time to upgrade your garbage disposal to a more powerful one, check out our money-saving coupons and then give Waldman in Marblehead a call. Even the most careful cook can accidentally clog up a low powered disposal. That’s an emergency that can easily be prevented … before dinner is served!
