It’s that time of year when we get together with our friends and family - especially the little ones - and we carve and decorate pumpkins for Halloween. Sheer excitement on their faces as they clean out the pumpkin or pick out the “pumpkin brains” (fibrous strands and seeds) as some say.
While your Jack O’ Lantern may be spooky, it’ll never be as scary as the damage the pumpkin’s strands and seeds can do to your drains. So as a reminder, please discard the “pumpkin brains” in the trash.
What happens when I dump the pumpkin's fibrous strands and seeds down my drain, garbage disposal, or flush them down the toilet? We ar e so glad you asked! When you do this, you are clogging your drains. The strands can get caught as you flush them and cause a sewer backup. Unfathomable damage like clogged pipes and broken garbage disposals are disastrous when the entire city of Dallas decides to dump pumpkin guts down the drain.
Avoid clogged drains and toilets this Halloween by dumping the “pumpkin brains’ in the trash.
