If you’ve ever clogged your kitchen sink, you understand how difficult it is. But you’ll never have to think about a clogged sink ever again if you adopt the following habits
No oil in the drain
Oil and grease are harmful to pipes (like the one you use for your fried chicken). They start building up on the inside, which results in a clogged drain over time. When you use fatty ingredients next time, don’t dump them down the drain. Spread aluminium foil in a little bowl instead and dump it in there. You should just trash out the foil, then
No starch or fibres in the disposal of trash
Foods that are starchy or full of fibres, such as potato skins, rhubarb, spaghetti, rice, or celery. When they start to decompose, these forms of food transform to gel, which can eventually clog the pipe. Instead, use the garbage can.
Use cold water to clean dishes, bowls, and pans
You still have it in your food even though you don’t pour oil straight down your sink. Which means that it is unavoidable to get any sticky residue on your plates. Wash those dishes with cold water to protect your sink from any oily effects. The cool water will make the oil stay more solid and slide more freely through the pipes.
Go easy on disposing of the garbage
The handling of your garbage is not supposed to cope with industrial amounts of leftovers. You will have to first scrape leftover food into the trash can to ensure that the disposal lasts longer with no clogging. Only then you can scrape something into the disposal that is left.
You want to regularly take care of your sink as best as you can, in order not to have any plumbers around. You will need to get a soft, enzyme-based substance for that. These are successful in extracting organic matter that can fill the plumbing. Leave the product overnight and in the morning, wash some water down the drain.
