Garbage disposals provide comfort and convenience in many kitchens. While these appliances are helpful for getting rid of leftover food scraps, experts warn that you could be cutting your system’s life short by putting the wrong items down your garbage disposal. Fortunately, it’s not too late to correct common mistakes!
