# Unclogging garbage disposals

Unclogging a garbage disposal starts by turning it off and unplugging it if possible. Remove any stuck waste visible in the drain opening using old utensils, plungers or forceps. Mix 1/2 cup baking soda with 1/2 cup vinegar and pour into drain then cover and let fizz for a few minutes. This reaction breaks down clogs chemically. Turn on cold water and plunge drain vigorously until obstruction is cleared. If needed, use a drain auger or forceps carefully inserted into disposal opening to break up clogs further. After unclogging remove any remaining debris with water. Sharpening disposal blades prevents future clogs. Replug and test disposal before regular use. Seeking repairs for major blockages prevents costlier issues.
