Among the leading food waste products to not put in a garbage disposal unit is grease. It seems safe enough since it is primarily a liquid and soft, however can easily clog up water pipes since it can adhere to the insides of drain pipes. Grease rather should be put in the trash can. Other items that should not enter are bones, onion and potato peels, celery, shells from shell fish, big amounts of coffee grounds, and pastas (which can also make a sticky mess in ones drain pipes).

In regards to correctly running the disposal unit, ensure that only cold water is used and have the water running on high prior to switching on the disposer. Then, in percentages put food waste into it. As soon as all the waste is chopped up, run the disposal for 30 to 60 seconds longer. And obviously, keep the water running till after the disposal is shut off.

To keep the disposal blades clean and without particles, slice up a couple of ice cubes to clean it. Also, slice lemon slices or other citrus peels to assist in keeping odors away.
