What is the best way to unclog a clogged garbage disposal?
The good news is that a blocked garbage disposal may be drained in a variety of ways. Before we get started, it's crucial to understand that drain cleaners should be avoided. While these methods may work, they are not eco-friendly and should only be used as a last resort.
A plunger is one of the most effective techniques to unclog a clogged garbage disposal. You can use a toilet plunger, but for sanitary reasons, you should use a sink plunger, which is also a little smaller and easier to use.
Another method is to use a baking soda and white vinegar mixture that is both ecologically safe and effective. Pour one part baking soda and two parts white vinegar down the drain. This will result in a fizzy chemical reaction, which may cause food in the line to break down. After around 20 minutes, flush it clean with water.
