Cooking fats, oils, shortenings and grease are all widely around the world for cooking of all types. In fact many products such as sauces, gravies, animal juices and other fluids with fat can create problems on home drainage and sewage systems.
Times such as during holidays, the extra use of these high fatting products can cause a problem when poured down sinks or toilets. These fats will collect inside sewer pipes and drains leading to backups in your home and costly and frustrating repairs.
Tips to deal with fats:
- Never pour greases down any drains, sinks or toilets.
- Scrap grease and put food scraps in the trash.
- Put the rest into a container and put grease and oil into the freezer preventing a mess.
- Toss frozen grease into the trash before trash day.
