ACTIVE Disposal Cleaner Usage Guide

Cleaning Your Garbage Disposal With ACTIVE

Maintaining the garbage disposal is important when it comes to maintaining a clean kitchen. For one thing, it can easily become a trap for grime and unpleasant odors if not cleaned regularly.

Why It’s Important To Clean Your Garbage Disposal

active garbage disposal cleaner tabletsCleaning the garbage disposal will not only reduce odors but it’ll also ensure that it works properly.

For example, leftover food, especially within the rubber splash guard or grinding chamber, can decay over time and cause clogs.

Not only that but certain things such as grease and stringy vegetables can also leave behind a slimy residue that won’t be broken down properly.

Unpleasant Odors from Grease Buildup

Cooling fats and oils will also solidify into greasy substances, which will cling onto the surfaces inside your garbage disposal system, creating the perfect conditions for foul odors.

These microorganisms will feed on the decaying food scraps and contribute towards foul smells while also posing potential health risks.

Problems Caused By Dirty Garbage Disposals

A clean garbage disposal is about more than just having a clean kitchen. It’s an essential aspect of home maintenance that, if neglected, can lead to significant issues.

As mentioned earlier, the food waste lingering inside can lead to grime accumulation, which will not only produce unpleasant odors but can also pose potential health risks.

Not only that but oils can also accumulate inside and that can lead to clogs, which can significantly affect the unit performance.

More specifically, the buildup can restrict water flow through the pipes, causing slower drainage times along with an increased risk of backups that can damage other plumbing fixtures around your house.

How Do the Disposer Cleaning Tablets By ACTIVE Work?

active garbage disposal cleaner tablets instructionsUnlike DIY methods (e.g. baking soda, ice cubes, citrus peels, dish soap) ACTIVE Disposal Cleaner Tablets are specifically formulated with garbage disposals in mind.

They’re designed to disintegrate food particles and oils that have built up over time inside the garbage disposal.

They work by producing a foaming solution that fills the disposal’s grinding chamber. This ensures every nook and cranny, where debris may accumulate, is thoroughly cleaned.

They’re easy to use too as all you need to do is drop one tablet into the drain with the water running. Before you know it, it will start to scrub away the stubborn fat deposits hidden inside the appliance.

Not only that but the tablet will also neutralize any foul smells at their source – rather than just masking them like some competing products do.

The best part? The tablets are safe for all types of plumbing and septic systems.

Troubleshooting Common Garbage Disposal Issues

Garbage disposals, while handy, can sometimes throw a wrench in your kitchen routine with unexpected issues.

Here’s how to handle a few of the most typical problems.

Lingering Odors Inside The Disposal

If you notice an unpleasant smell coming from your sink drain opening, chances are, it’s due to food residue stuck in hard-to-reach places (e.g. underneath the blades).

Fortunately, there’s an easy fix – just use the cleaning tablets by ACTIVE and it will scrub away all the stubborn grime.

Visible Food Debris After Cleaning

active garbage disposal cleaner tablets calendarIn some cases, food debris can remain even after using disposal cleaners. To fix that, run cold water and turn on the unit for approximately 30 seconds – that will help flush out any lingering scraps.

Make sure not to use hot water as that may melt the oils and fats, which will end up re-solidifying further down the pipes, causing clogs within the drainage system. The same goes for warm water.

If food residue is still present after these steps, try another round of ACTIVE cleaning tablets.

The Best Garbage Disposal Cleaning Products

Caring for your kitchen waste disposal means choosing the right products for the job.

Some options, such as drain cleaners, can cause harm over time due to their corrosive nature or inability to provide a deep clean.

ACTIVE Disposal Cleaner, on the other hand, will effectively scrub away the oils that are trapped underneath without damaging any components in the process. It even comes with a pleasant citrus scent.

Common Questions About Disposal Maintenance

The garbage disposal is often seen as an abyss below your kitchen sink, so it’s no wonder many disposal owners have questions about it.

Here are some of the most common questions and their answers.

How Often Should You Clean Your Garbage Disposal?

Ideally, you want to clean your disposal at least twice a month using ACTIVE Disposal Cleaner tablets.

active garbage disposal cleaner kitchen waste disposerSimply toss one in with a slow stream of water running, then turn on the disposal.

For most users, cleaning the unit twice a month with ACTIVE Cleaning tablets will suffice. However, if you notice foul odors or poor performance, additional cleaning cycles may be needed.

How Do You Clean A Garbage Disposal Without Removing It?

You can effectively clean your waste disposer by using an ACTIVE Garbage Disposal Cleaner tablet. Just place one inside the disposal and let the scrubbing foam do the rest of the work!

How Do I Keep My Garbage Disposal Running Smoothly?

Avoid feeding the unit hard objects or fibrous foods (e.g. corn husks) that could cause jams or damage the blades.

It’s also a good idea to run cold water after each use to flush down any oils. Using an effective cleaning product like ACTIVE Disposal Cleaner will also help keep it squeaky clean.

    Works better than other kinds


    Been using Active tabs for my washing machine, but just stumbled upon these for the disposal, and they’re a winner. Way better than others. Had to use 2 tabs to tackle the mess from the last tenant, but it did the trick. Definitely recommend. Price is worth it. Oh, and if you grab these, grab the Active tabs for the washing machine too.
