Under No Circumstances Should You Pour It Down the Sink.

Trending Now

Many people don’t consider the consequences and simply pour it into the sink, which is a grave error. The grease can cause the pipes to burst, leading to a certain disaster. However, you can avoid this by disposing of fat properly.

How to Get Rid of Fat After Frying?

During the upcoming Easter holidays, when dishes requiring large amounts of fat are common, pouring it down the sink is not advisable. Instead, use a simple trick to prevent your pipes from getting clogged.

Use Aluminum Foil

Grab some aluminum foil and place it in the sink to create a "plate". Then pour the remaining fat inside (if it is lard, wait until it hardens). Gently wrap the foil so that the fat doesn't spill out and dispose of the bundle in the mixed waste container.

Remember, oil after frying should never find its way down the sink.

Alternative Use for Vegetable Oil

Vegetable oil can also be used as compost. Allow it to soak into cardboard, napkins, or sawdust made from natural materials, but remember not to pour the fat directly. This prevents soil contamination and addresses the problem of excess used oil.
