Today I was going to put my plan of attack into action. But last night I decided I was going to make pumpkin puree and roast some seeds and apparently I let too much pumpkin down the disposal and we had a flood. I had no idea. Apparently its common knowledge but I usually throw organics out in the compost and food scraps go in the trash can, so I’m not all knowing on the business of disposal rules. No melted candy coating, no large amounts of rice and no potato skins, That’s it. Let’s talk about feeling like a dope!
My husband was and still is livid because the sink back flowed out to the washer drain and flooded the garage so right now I have no sink and no washer. So here is my plan for today…dry the garage and come up with a list of things that don’t go in the garbage disposal! In case you were wondering here is an easy way to remember:
1. Greasy stuff (meat, hot oils)
2. Hard Stuff (bones, egg shells, pits)
3. Fibrous stuff (ie pumpkins, carrots, artichokes)
4. Expandable stuff (ie rice, pasta)
I did some research on the subject and found this website helpful. So for more info click below.
