I don’t know about you, but I absolutely hate getting a clogged drain, having to run to the store to pay $6+ on a bottle of drain cleaner, and then literally pouring that money down the drain. And they only seem to work some of the time.
Here is an idea for a DIY Drain Cleaner that is simple to use and just as effective as those bought in the stores.
–Pour about a cup of Baking Soda down the drain.
–Pour 1/2 cup of white vinegar on top of the baking soda. If it foams up and baking soda remains after the foam settles, pour another 1/2 cup of vinegar in the drain.
–Allow to sit for about 30 minutes.
–Rinse with very hot water for about 2-3 minutes.
You may need to repeat the process for really tough drains. You can also do this about once a month as a preventative measure to prevent buildup. A great way to take care of one of the not so fun tasks in the house and save money in the process!
