Blocked DrainsThere are several ways you can successfully unblock a garbage disposer:

  • Reset the unit.  The switch can usually be found on the underside of the device, easily accessible from under the sink.
  • Use a broom.  Unplug the garbage disposer from the power, stick the handle of a broom right down to the bottom, then spin the blade – first one way, then the other. This will, in all likelihood, loosten the blockage.
  • Use Vinegar and Baking Soda.  Half a cup of each – left to sit for hand an hour – should soften the food scraps inside enough for it to work the next time.

Got any other tips?  We’d love to hear them!
