Tuesday Tips

To keep the garbage disposal clean and deodorized ~

grind citrus fruit (lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit) rinds
grind ice cubes made from 1 part water 1 part vinegar

pour 1/4 cup baking soda and 1/2 cup vinegar into disposal, let sit for about 5 minutes, flush with warm water

Things to never put down a disposal ~

fibrous material, such as corn husks, onion peels, artichokes, or celery stalks
potato peels
meat bones

Hot water on a regular basis should be avoided. Run cold water before, during, and after the disposal's operation.

Thank you Mrs. H, I did not know that. I always keep oranges in the fridge during season times. I will have to do that with the ones I have in the fridge now. What a great tip!


p.s. I cooked your BBQ beef sandwiches & my family LOVED them! I was so proud that the BBQ sauce was homemade too. Thank you.
