Pouring kitchen grease down the sink is one of the leading causes of plumbing problems in homes. In addition to ruining garbage disposals, grease deposits in piping can cause water to overflow into the house. Because of these issues, it’s important that homeowners dispose of grease properly.

After you are done cooking, you can either wipe the grease out of the pan with a paper towel or pour the grease into a sealed container. Once the grease is cleaned out, simply throw the paper towel or container into the trash can. Following these simple steps will keep your plumbing working properly and make the city’s water much cleaner.
