Don’t Use Your Fingers! The Children Are Watching - Use The New DISPOSE-IT-GUARD by Disposal Guard, Inc.; Safety & Convenience Made Simple

Adults rarely think twice before sticking their hands in a stopped-up garbage disposal to retrieve a dropped fork, chicken bone, wedding ring, etc. And, many find themselves regularly using their fingers to push scraps down into the disposal once it has started. So, if the disposal isn’t running, or you think you know what you’re doing, what can really go wrong? Children learn by observing adults so if they think that their parent can’t get hurt, they’ll mimic the behavior and then a lot can go wrong. This was DISPOSE-IT-GUARD® designer T.J. Dombrowski’s motivation for creating the ultimate garbage disposal accessory.

Adults rarely think twice before sticking their hands in a stopped-up garbage disposal to retrieve a dropped fork, chicken bone, wedding ring, etc. And, many find themselves regularly using their fingers to push scraps down into the disposal once it has started.

Children learn by observing adults so if they think that their parent can’t get hurt, they’ll mimic the behavior and then a lot can go wrong. This was DISPOSE-IT-GUARD® designer T.J. Dombrowski’s motivation for creating the ultimate garbage disposal accessory. Dombrowski, whose kitchen was regularly a meeting spot for neighborhood children to learn to cook, says, “I was helping them peel all the veggies into the sink, which had a disposal. I turned on the faucet and the disposal, and used my fingers to push the peelings into the disposal. I looked up and the children were watching what I was doing. It frightened me! Their hands were small enough to go all the way into the disposal!” This became a major concern for Dombrowski and he knew he had to do something about it. “I couldn’t find the right garbage disposal accessories out there. I made it my goal to prevent childhood injuries due to garbage disposals. Every day that went by without a proper drain cover was another day that something terrible could happen.”

The DISPOSE-IT-GUARD® by Disposal Guard Inc. is a heavy duty stopper/strainer that is used in place of a garbage disposal stopper. But it’s more than just a stopper – DISPOSE-IT-GUARD is a stopper, strainer, safety poker and scraper all in one. 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.

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.
