Just learned how to clean my GD.
I have had a garbage disposal for over 25 years. On my 2nd one.
Today I was taking a cloth and wiping the little rubber flaps. I pushed the cloth in and pull it out to wipe the inside of the flaps. I admit that is something I rarely do. Well the whole thing came out. I had no idea it came out. I don't think DH does either. Actually I know he doesn't as I can remember him dropping a screw into the disposal and trying to see into it to retrieve it.
Well the good news is that it was very clean inside the chamber and the underneath of the flaps. Just wiped a little gunk and snapped it back in place.
I am sharing this for those who are concerned with cleaning their disposal. I assume that they all pop out like my did.
Next I will confess how I just learned how to clean the filter in my DW ; )
