Dumping Pumpkins in the Drain
Halloween means lots of pumpkin-fun. All of us love scooping out the orange-y pulp from these rigid shells. What we do not understand is that all the pumpkin-fun can turn into a complete plumbing disaster.
Want to enjoy cooping out the squishy pulp from pumpkins and want to spend a worry-free Halloween night? You need to be careful about how you dispose of the stringy and squishy guts of the pumpkin. Many people choose to dispose of the rings, guts, seeds, and pulp in the kitchen drain.
It is a convenient way to get rid of the pulp, but it will turn your Halloween into a real horror scene. The pulp you dispose of in the kitchen drain can clog the drain and put you into trouble. Nothing can be worse than a clogged kitchen drains during a Halloween party at your home!
Additionally, garbage disposals cannot handle the seeds and pumpkin seeds should NEVER be sent into a garbage disposal. There is potential for damaging the blades or getting them stuck.
Pumpkin seeds will also clog dishwashers! So save yourself a service call fee from a plumber and dispose of your pumpkin seeds appropriately or you can try drying out and eating the pumpkin seeds! Just do not put pumpkin seeds in the plumbing!
