Why Proper Disposal of Used Cooking Oil Is So Crucial

Posted by Bill Fenwick on Thu, Feb 22, 2018 @ 09:00 AM

Dealing with a clogged kitchen drain can be a hassle, especially when it springs out of nowhere when you are trying to prepare a meal or, worse, preparing for guests to arrive. One of the most common causes of clogs is the dumping used cooking oil down your drain. This includes rinsing oil and grease from pots and pans down your drain. Rinsing drains with hot water and grease-fighting dish detergent behind the oil won’t prevent clogs; the grease will simply jell further down the pipeline, causing the same clog but in a more difficult location.
