How to Dispose of Bacon Grease Correctly So You Don't Clog Your Sink



Cook your bacon until crispy. Lay two sheets of paper towels on top of a plate. Place the bacon on the paper towels to soak up the grease. While the oil in the pan is still hot, pour the powder inside the packet into the pan and stir it together.

After you've thoroughly mixed the flakes in, let the science begin. As the oil cools, it'll harden into a block. This will take about 45 minutes. Enjoy your bacon in the meantime!

After the oil completely hardens, use a spatula to gently scrape the sides of the pan to help you remove it, and dump it in the trash.
