Out of all the modern wonders we enjoy in our homes today, perhaps the most abused is the household drain. Many of us take for granted the fact that we can harness running water, bring it into our homes wherever we like, and let gravity alone remove it in a safe and healthy way. Until suddenly the water doesn’t go away like we want.
Do your drains a favor and throw these items in the trash next time:
At the Garbage Disposal
- Vegetable Peels
- Coffee Grounds
At the Toilet
- Flushable Wipes – Sounds nice on a label, but we find them causing blockages all the time.
- Ultra Thick Quilted Toilet Paper (or specifically any toilet paper whose name rhymes with “Farmin”)
- Feminine Products
- Paper Towels
