Come on in! Join Pinterest today...it only takes like a second or so.
Yep, did my kitchen sink this morning. This def works, just make sure you leave a window open to let the fumes escape.
I will try after I finsih the dishes tonight.
I've been trying to figure out somethin to use to clean the drains bcuz mom hasn't gotten drano yet!
This is also good for cleaning floor tile grout.
My Plummer recommend this ;)
I read this as brain cleaner!! Ha ha ha ha! Thought it was too good to be true!
gotta have it
This does NOT work. I tried it 3 different times.
Vinegar is very useful to clean almost anything.
Didn't work for me either :/
Clogged drains suck! I wish that vinegar and baking soda could fix every slow or stopped up drain. How awesome would that be? This is a great fix for general drain cleaning and problems close to the sink. This is not a "fix it all, never have to call the plumber again recipe". There aren't any. :( I had a slow drain 2 months ago and tried this and a few other home fixes to no avail - boiling water, plunger, etc. I finally called in a plumber and he snaked the drain. About 30 feet out there was a blockage. It was Beans. Big red kidney beans. I live in an apartment and one of the neighbors rinsed beans down the drain and caused a blockage that was bad enough to clog my kitchen sink. I could have poured caustic chemicals down the drain, but they wouldn't have helped either. Instead I used vinegar, baking soda, and boiling water. Some things just need a professional. For regular drain maintenance I love this safe and easy DIY. I hope you beat your clogs :)!
This worked PERFECT for our clogged shower drain!! It took a couple tries, but worth the effort since its all natural and no need for harsh chemicals!
Great! I needed this today! Going to do it now when everyone's asleep.
Just did this... Worked like a charm!! :D
Bleach works better!!
For clarity Vinegar & baking soda ARE chemicals and turn into dangerous ones when combined and hot water is added
Bleach is very caustic and should never be used down your drain. If u used bleach don't do this treatment or u will get a poisonous gas that will kill u
Everything is a chemical if you want to break it down and get right to it. I do wish to concur that mixing VINEGAR and BLEACH is a BAD idea! The two combine to release toxic chlorine gas. It should not be done at home, avoid it just like you would bleach and ammonia. Vinegar and baking soda are safe to combine as millions of school aged children and young at heart can attest to. The science behind it is pretty simple and it breaks down to salt water (sodium acetate) through a multi-step reaction. The acetic acid in vinegar combines with the sodium bicarbonate in the baking soda to form carbonic acid which is unstable and instantly falls apart into carbon dioxide and water - the bubbles - what is left is diluted sodium acetate in water. Sodium acetate is a salt which is used for all kinds of things including Salt and Vinegar chips. :)
This really works! After paying for pipes eaten through by caustic product
I have used this in my drains for years and have NEVER had any bad reaction, nor has anyone else in the house. It works.
I am a plumber, and I'm tellin you that if a plunger won't work niether will this or any other chemical!
Grandma taught me this when I was a kid. No, it won't clear a clog but if you have some odors in the drain this will take care of it.
Whatever it is ...works,sorry pros!
Tried it on my stinky drain and it worked great!!
I'd like to know how to get stinky black sludge out of drains. We just bought a house, and every drain is full of it, and I can't stand the smell!
@Life With Lullabies on the same page there is a suggestion for freshening drains you might want to give a try.
i do this weekly in all my drains and have never had a clog (well one tub 3 daughters long hair)
Just did this and it worked like magic.
I use this all the time great
Worth keeping in mind!
Great idea. Thanks for the great pin!
My b/f tried drano first since he didn't believe this would work. After using the whole jug, I kicked him out of the bathroom and I had it unclogged in 20 minutes. Yep, I walked out of there like a pro, lol!
I'll have to give it a try!
Good stuff. I've been using this for a while, works better than Drano or any of those expensive drain cleaners.
I am going to try this!!! 💗💗
rePinned! dont forget to comply with me
Totally agree, have used this many times.
Just followed her instruction and waitng for a miracle.....lots of black sludge coming out but the plug I fear is still there...wll try once again...then I will call the plummer.
hope this works
It works wonders, love it.
Had to completely cut off 50 year old cast iron pipes and replace with PVC.......so it was a much bigger job than any drain cleaner could fix ;(
Yup, it works!
