It’s well-known, but worth repeating.
Grease should never be poured down a kitchen drain. The moment that liquid fat touches cold water or cold pipes, it can harden and block pipes.
Traditionally, disposing of grease required:
- Pouring the grease into a glass jar
- Placing the jar in the refrigerator
- Throwing out the jar once the grease had hardened
However, a new, biodegradable product called Absorb-Ease lets you go from Grill to Garbage in one easy step — with no spilled grease and no collecting of glass jars.
Just put an FDA-approved Absorb-Ease pad in a hot, greasy skillet and watch it absorb liquid like a paper towel absorbs a spill. The analogy is fitting, in fact, because Absorb-Ease is made from food-grade, fibrous tree pulp — much like paper towel.
Grease-soaked Absorb-Ease pads can be thrown out with the rest of the garbage and can be bought online in packs of 64. They cost roughly $0.27 each.
