After I get done washing the dishes there is often a decent collection of food scraps in the drain trap -- perhaps a few tablespoons worth. This is, of course, mixed in with some soap suds. If I put this into my compost, will it cause any problems?
Out of my 5 liter compost pail, there would be maybe 200 to 300 mL of this soapy food scrap mixture by the time it's full. The dish soap I use is advertised as natural and biodegradable, but the list of ingredients includes a few hard-to-pronounce chemicals and things described as preservatives.
