Have you ever washed food chunks and grease down your kitchen sink drain? There are some good reasons to think twice before doing that again. 

Grease and food can get stuck in your pipes and cause clogs. They can even cause damage to your septic system. Have you ever heard of a “fatberg”? It’s a rock-like mass of waste matter that is created by flushing non-biodegradable solids (like oil and grease) down your drain. Even though some fatty liquids seem to slide down your drain very easily, like coconut oil or bacon grease, they can solidify and cause issues.

The best thing to do is clean off any remaining food chunks from your plates and utensils into your trash can before washing them in the sink or putting them in your dishwasher. Also, use a good sink strainer basket to catch food remnants before they make it down your drain. Use paper towel to wipe fats and greases off your plates and pans before washing. 

It may seem like a little extra work, but it will be worth it. Clogs and septic issues will cost a lot more than the time it took to do so.
