‪How to Safely Clean a Garbage Disposal‬.

Pour two cups of ice and a cup of either rock salt or vinegar down the disposal and run it with cold water to clear any debris from the moving parts. To remove clogs, unplug the unit and use tongs to remove the culprits. Never stick your hand down a garbage disposal; call a professional plumber if you are unable to remove a clog.
