Thank you Nikki!!! I needed this NOW! Pour 1/2 cup baking soda and then 1/2 cup of vinegar. Cover up the drain during the crazy chemical reaction. Wait 15 mins and pour a pot of boiling water. It totally clears up the clogged drain caused by my hair and its easier on the pipes than Drano. Works every time!
unclog drain- Drain unblocker Unblock your drains without pouring harmful pollutants into the water system by pouring down 1 c of salt and 1/2 c of baking soda mixed together, followed by a kettle of boiling water. Can also use baking soda and white vinegar and boiling water.
Every month or two, give the pipes a good preventative cleaning to keep them clear of grease, oil, and hair clogs. Pour 1/2 cup baking soda down the drain, followed by 1/2 cup white vinegar. The mixture will foam up. Let stand for a few minutes to dissolve fatty acids, then pour boiling water down the drain to wash out any clogs.
Getting rid of black gunk in drain: 1. Put pot of water to boil. 2. Pour baking soda down drain. Baking soda has ability to neutralize fatty acids, will eat away the grime while you're waiting for water to boil. 3. Pour boiling hot water down drain. 4. Let the water & baking soda work for 10 minutes. 5. Then pour 1 cup bleach down drain to kill any remaining mildew/bacteria.
Drain Cleaner: Pour 3/4-1 cup of baking soda in the drain. Pour 1/2 cup vinegar in the drain and immediately cover the drain (I use a plug or set a plate over it ) Leave everything to sit and work for about 30 mins (don’t use the sink during this time). After 30 mins, remove cover and run hot water thru the pipes for about 2-3 mins. for really tough clogs you may need to repeat.
