How To Clean Your Kitchen Garbage Disposal?

The most important part of this process is your safety. Never take any action that’ll compromise your well-being while cleaning your garbage disposal.

Materials Needed

Distilled white vinegar Baking soda Boiling water Ice Sea salt Lemon (or lime)

Step 1:

First, sprinkle a 1/2 cup of baking soda down the disposal. Add 1 cup of white vinegar and allow the mixture to fizz and make a bit of noise. Let the mixture sit and work for a few minutes. Then, boil a kettle of hot water. Pour the boiling water down the drain.

Step 2:

Fill the drain with two cups of ice. Pour one cup of salt over the ice cubes (rock salt is great if you have it). Run some cold water. Turn on the garbage disposal until the ice is gone.

The mixture of ice and salt will help loosen the grime and debris from the grinding elements.

Step 3:

Let's finish it of. Cut a lemon (or lime) in half. Turn the water on and run the garbage disposal. Add the fruit halves to the disposal one at a time.

That’s it, you’re done! The fruit will clean and deodorize your drain!

Tankless Water Heater Benefits

Hot water fresh from the faucet is something we take for granted but are you wasting
energy and your budget by using an old, outdated water heater? A tankless water heater
might supply your household’s needs more economically and efficiently than a storage model.
Tankless water heaters are also called demand water heaters because they supply hot water as you need it.

Tankless Vs Storage
Tankless water heaters work differently than storage water heaters, and that means benefits to homeowners.
Storage heaters maintain a tank of water at a constant temperature, but tankless heaters heat water directly
as you use it. Unlike storage models, tankless heaters don’t allow hot water to sit around losing heat as it’s
waiting to be used. The resulting reduction in energy use is as much as 10 to 15%. What’s more, because the hot
water isn’t stored, there’s no large hot water tank taking up space in your home.

Cost
Tankless water heaters are usually more expensive than storage heaters, but over the long term, you can save money.
As well as saving on energy bills, tankless heaters last up to 20 years, which is 5 to 10 years longer than storage models.

Electric or Gas?
If your home has an electric and natural gas supply, it’s worth taking the time to choose the right type of tankless
heater for your needs. Though tankless heaters use less energy than storage water heaters in total, their energy use
while they’re running is higher. Check that your gas or electric supply is up to supplying a tankless heater’s energy
requirements before you make your choice.



Before You Decide
A tankless water heater could be the right choice for your family, but there are some factors to bear in mind. Homes that use
41 gallons or less hot water per day benefit most from tankless water heaters and savings decrease at higher water use rates.

A tankless heater might not start up at a low flow rate, such as for hand washing. In addition, a demand heater’s maximum flow
rate might not be high enough to meet the needs of a large household. Running a shower and dishwasher or washing machine at the
same time might be asking too much of some tankless water heaters. If your family is large, consider purchasing a gas tankless heaters.
Gas water heaters are better than electric heaters for supplying a high flow rate of hot water. To avoid paying to maintain a constant
pilot light on a gas heater, you can opt for a model with an Intermittent Ignition Device (IID).

For most homes, the benefits of tankless water heaters are clear. You can have an on-demand, endless supply of hot water while
paying lower energy bills. For professional advice on what’s the best water heater for
your family, contact Clinton Maintenance and Plumbing at 855-500-5531.

Don't use flush-able"wipes

Those flush-able baby wipes are one of the main culprits for clogging pipes. They don’t break down the way toilet paper does. But you don't want to miss these extraordinary uses for baby wipes (just toss them in the trash instead!).

PEX stands for Cross-linked Polyethylene. It's a really strong, flexible pipe. With PEX, you can pull an entire pipe run and only have to make two joints.

A burst washing machine hose is a top homeowner-insurance claim. I’d replace those flimsy rubber hoses with stainless steel ones. And avoid these other laundry mistakes.
