A garbage disposal in any kitchen is a blessing… that is, until it becomes clogged and stops working properly. Even if you’re careful about what you put down your garbage disposal, clogs can happen. Generally, clogs are caused by dropping a foreign object, such as utensils, into the disposal; feeding garbage into the disposal too rapidly; or failing to run enough water while the garbage is being processed. You should also know the limitations of your disposal by checking the owner’s manual.
