When Food and Drains Clash: Five Items to Keep Your Eye On

For those of us that are NOT coffee drinkers, how about adding to this list, pumpkin insides given the stringiness of the stuff and how sticky it is. It would be right up the drain with hair but only worse. As for grease, I wouldn't have this stuff poured down the drain, which even when I helped out with the church Community Dinner last Friday, we had a lot of grease from the chicken. Given the grease had some time to cool down, I was just having the grease dumped into the garbage along with the aluminum foil. After it was full to a certain point, I compacted everything in the bag, tied it a certain way so as the grease wouldn't go every which way within the dumpster and then took the whole garbage can, lifted it over the dumpster and dumped the bag into it. No problems from that.

Pumpkin insides – now that’s something we didn’t think of! But we can certainly see how that could cause some serious problems in your drain. We also like your story about your church dinner. Putting all that grease down your drain would definitely create issues. We are glad you disposed of it in the trash!
