Keeping the kitchen sink clean doesn’t commonly hit the highest rank on the to-do list. Of course, prevention is always better than cure so it’s important to understand the usual things that we do that gets us into this dilemma in the first place.
At the end of washing the dishes, It is always much easier to push all food debris down the kitchen sink waste. In fact, some may even sometimes stick the finger into the mash and force the food down the kitchen sink drain when trying to rinse the sink bowl clean.
By doing this we are packing the food scraps even more, effectively overtime making our own waste plug that’s asking for trouble.
Foods such as bread, vegetable, and fruit peels, in fact, all foods as a solid state are a major concern when entered in the kitchen sink waste pipe. Over time, and a little buildup at a time, these will cause the kitchen sink waste blockage to occur without fail.
Ensuring that all food scraps are wiped off the dishes and disposed of in the garbage prior to bringing dishes to the kitchen sink to be washed is the most important ‘routine maintenance’ rule to keep in mind.
Grease and oils are another item that seems to find themselves in the kitchen sink and down the drain but should be kept away from going down the kitchen drain as it clings on to the insides of your pipes and attract everything to stick to them slowly building up over time.
It is wiser to collect the oils and greases from dishes in a container, even the excess cooking oils when finished can be let to cool down and collect in a container as well, which can then be disposed of in the garbage.
Remembering to keep as much stuff out of the kitchen sink drain is the ultimate maintenance and precaution one can take to keep the kitchen sink as healthy, free-flowing and smelly free.
