People rarely consider dish-washing an activity where a serious injury could occur. This misconception can lead to minimal thinking when it comes to being safe in the kitchen. A shot glass falls into the sink and there is shattered glass everywhere, including the disposal. Someone reaches inside to clean up the remains, and they could be looking at the possibility of not only a damaged disposal, but a serious and unexpected injury. Not only can these objects damage a disposal, but it’s easy for fingers, long hair and loose clothing to get caught when the disposal is running.
The possibility of an injury, however, isn’t the only risk involved when washing dishes. Because a disposal is extremely hard to clean, bits and pieces of food can get stuck between the blades, making your disposal contaminated with bacteria and germs. Using your fingers to clean up this food can be a disgusting process. This inspired T.J. Dombrowski to create the, DISPOSE-IT-GUARD by Disposal Guard Inc. It is a heavy duty stopper/strainer that is used in place of a garbage disposal stopper. It’s not just a stopper and strainer, though, but also a safety poker and scraper. A simple twist of the uniquely designed T-handle opens or closes the strainer, while the plunger is designed to avoid all contact with the garbage disposal blades even while it’s running. Just stick it in the disposal, and it’s ready to go. “I made it my goal to prevent injuries due to garbage disposals. Every day that went by without a proper drain cover was another day that something terrible could happen,” said Dombrowski when talking about his motivation for creating the DISPOSE-IT-GUARD.
DISPOSE-IT-GUARD is 100% made in America and after two years of product testing, Disposal Guard Inc. and T.J. Dombrowski himself proudly and confidently stand behind their quality product. DISPOSE-IT-GUARD is available to purchase on DisposalGuard.com and select home and hardware stores nationwide.
