 Let FOG Cool, Put It In Disposable (like cottage cheese) Containers

And Into The Trash Instead

But What About FOG That Can’t Be Separated? 

Example: Brewed Coffee.  When you discard remaining coffee — a bit of oil ends up in the drains.

For this type of FOG – you can do monthly, drain-maintenance.  Though typically marketed for Septic Tank maintenance — RID-X works equally well on sewer pipes.  It’s an all-natural, enzyme drain cleaner that breaks down Fats, Oils, & Grease.  And, unlike chemical drain cleaners — the enzymes clean the entire surface of the pipe, versus only at the bottom.

All natural RID-X acts only on biological waste — it can’t harm sewer pipes.  Unlike chemical drain cleaners,  RID-X poses no risk to you during use.

WHY? Because, unlike toilet paper – Baby Wipes don’t break down.  Instead, some settle to the bottom of the Sewer Main pipes — and eventually, cause a clog.  And, because, every drain in the house drains into the Sewer Main(s) — you can end up with a Whole-House Clog.

Toilet paper is designed to break down in water.  As compared, Baby Wipes are made of assorted combinations of; synthetic materials, plastics, or polyester.  None of these break down in water.
