Know Its Limitations
A very common cause of garbage disposal problems stems from the misconception that just about anything can be fed into a garbage disposal. This is just not true. Avoid putting very hard items, like animal bones, into your system. Also avoid very fibrous foods, such as corn husks or celery stalks, which can get caught up in moving parts. Additionally, remember that liquid fats and grease will congeal once they cool, and that they are not suitable for disposal via your drains.
Run the Water
Your garbage disposal does not chop everything that enters it up with blades. Instead, centrifugal force is used to pull waste into a grinding mechanism, which essentially renders everything into a pasty liquid that is easily disposed of through your drainage system. To facilitate the process, it is necessary that you run the water when using your garbage disposal, every single time. This will help to prevent issues with blockages, as well as damage to your system.
