Freeze the Grease, Save a Bundle. Keep Fats Out Of The Pipes

Freeze the Grease, Save a Bundle. Keep Fats Out Of The Pipes. Info here!

Simple Solution. Big Reward.

After big holiday meals, no one likes to be stuck doing the clean-up. But if you aren't careful with leftover gravy, pan drip-pings and sauces a grease-clogged drain could ruin your holiday and cost you a bundle.

When fats, oils and grease are poured down the drain, they stick to the inside of pipes causing messy sewer backups and expensive cleanup and repair.

The solution:
Pour the grease into a can, freeze it, and toss the can in the trash!
