The week of Shrovetide is coming soon. This means that millions of people around the world will try to prepare as many pancake dishes to enjoy before the start of Lent as possible.

Andrew Simms, a plumbing expert from MyBuilder.com, says in an interview with the publication that you should never pour leftover pancake batter down the sink. The fact is that this batter is classified as FOG (fats, oils and grease). That is, pouring this batter down the sink can lead to a clogged pipe and unplanned expenses.

Clogged sewer pipes with a mixture containing various oils are very difficult to remove. That's why such problems usually cost homeowners a lot of money. Thus, you need to be responsible when disposing of leftover batter.

If you have leftover batter after making pancakes, you can use it to create other dishes, Simms says. For example, it would make a great Yorkshire pudding.

You can also safely store the leftover batter in the freezer, and when the need arises, simply defrost it and fry fresh pancakes. By the way, in addition to pancake batter, it is not recommended to pour custard, sauces, as well as cooking and meat fats down the sink drain.
