Ice: Your Secret Weapon against a Disposal

Grab a dozen or so ice cubes, and let your garbage disposal do the work for you! The ice will help keep the rotors sharp and remove debris that has accumulated inside your disposal.

But no matter how new your disposal is, what ultimately matters is that drain line beyond your disposal.
