Make sure you avoid all these substances and products the next time you’re in front of your kitchen sink.
“F.O.G” stands for fat, oil, and grease. We know thee substances might not seem like a problem when they’re still in their liquid form going down your drain. To be fair here, they’re actually not a problem at this stage. The trouble comes when these substances settle and get a little sludge-like in texture. This type of substance in your drain creates the perfect environment for a clog.
When you finish eating your favorite stone fruit or making your avocado toast, make sure that your pit finds it way in the trash. Pits are hard and they’ll wreak havoc on your garbage disposal’s blades. You don’t want this so stay mindful!
Coffee grounds pose the same threat to your kitchen sink that F.O.G does. Coffee grounds create the perfect breeding ground for clogs. You might not notice the clog right away, but you will notice an unpleasant odor wafting up from your sink. This is a sign that your coffee grounds are catching up to you.
