After all the scraps from the Thanksgiving feast go down the drain, is it any wonder that the day after Thanksgiving is the busiest day of the year for plumbers? According to Angi, plumbing problems surge 50% that day. To avoid being one of the regretful crowd: Throw as many leftovers as possible into the trash rather than down the drain—and don’t discard turkey bones, poultry skin, potato peels, celery, fruit or grease in the garbage disposal. When you do use the disposal, “feed waste gradually to prevent overload,” notes Angi, and run lots of water while it’s operating. If you sense there’s a problem, don’t use the dishwasher until the drain can be inspected, as it discharges into the disposal and will only make things worse. Finally, give thanks to all the plumbers of the world, ready to help those who ignore these tips!
