How Do I Unclog My Garbage Disposal Without Calling a Plumber?

You’re in your kitchen, busy preparing a meal or cleaning up after the meal has been finished. Suddenly, your garbage disposal stops working. You have a pile of food scraps you need to get rid of, so what do you do? In all actuality, it’s usually a pretty simple task to get your garbage disposal working again, and you can do it yourself.

First of all, locate the key that goes with your garbage disposal. The key can usually be found under your cabinet and looks like a thin metal bar that is angled on both ends. Simply insert one of the ends of the key into the bottom of your garbage disposal, turn it a few times in both directions, and your garbage disposal will be completely free from clogs. It’s that simple.
