You wouldn’t think Halloween and your plumbing system would have anything in common. But traditional preparations for Halloween are responsible for a number of drain clogs. Particularly in the kitchen where many homeowners like to carve their pumpkins and then push the pulp and seeds down the garbage disposal.
Spread out a thick bed of newspaper
Scoop out the pumpkin pulp and pile it onto the newspaper
