What Kinds of Food Waste can a KleenGard In-Sink Food Waste Disposer Handle?

KleenGard In-Sink Food Waste Disposers are a convenient way to dispose of food waste at home, but not everyone knows exactly what types of food waste can be disposed of using a food waste disposer.
To ensure you don’t throw in food waste that isn’t suitable to be grinded with a KleenGard In-Sink Food Waste Disposer, you should always ensure that the appropriate kinds of food waste is disposed of properly.
Here’s a list of food waste materials that are able to be flushed down your food waste disposer:
  • Soft Chicken Bones
  • Fish Bones
  • Vegetables
  • Fish Head
  • Grapefruit Halves
  • Lemon Rinds
  • Prawn Shells
  • Tea Leaves
  • Bread
  • Egg Shells
  • Corn Cobs
  • Potato Peels
  • Banana Peels
  • Fruit Pits
  • Meat
  • Noodles and Rice
  • Nut Shells
  • Coffee Grounds
While the food waste materials listed above may be disposed of with a KleenGard In-Sink Food Waste Disposer, some unlisted items may even bring benefits to your food waste disposer in unexpected ways. This includes cold running water, citrus fruits, and even biodegradable dishwashing soap.
For cold running water, is it a recommended method to help carry food waste down the drain while the food waste disposer is running. To ensure food waste scraps do not get stuck at the bottom, leading to a possible clog and bad odor, it is often wise to keep the cold running water on for ten seconds before and after using the KleenGard In-Sink Food Waste Disposer.
Another item that helps break down the gunk inside your food waste disposer while replacing bad odor with a refreshing scent is citrus fruits. This is because the acidity of citrus fruits will help break down the gunk that causes clogging and bad odor. To make this method even more effective, cut the citrus fruit into wedges and wash it down the disposer with cold running water.
Last but not least, at this point, if you’ve read the previous blog about what you shouldn’t put into a KleenGard In-Sink Food Waste Disposer, you will know that grease is an enemy to disposers no matter the caliber. Thus, anti-grease chemicals in dishwashing soap are immensely helpful in breaking down the congealed grease inside your disposer, leading to a cleaner and longer-lasting food waste disposer.
