How to clean your garbage disposal. Start by running hot water through your garbage disposal for a minute. Pour about 1/4 c. baking soda into the drain. Flip the garbage disposal on for 2 seconds, just to whirl the baking soda inside, and then leave it alone for 10-15 minutes. Follow with 1 c. of vinegar. Watch the bubbles erupt out of your drain. (Yay!) Rinse through one last time with very hot water and run your garbage disposal for 5 seconds.
It's simple—dab the area with a microfiber or white cloth and finish off by applying this magic formula: one tablespoon of liquid dish soap, two cups of cool water, and one tablespoon of white vinegar. Just like that the joe stains should disappear. Get the full how-to instructions from Debra Johnson at Merry Maids.
Unclog a drain with Baking Soda and Vinegar. 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 you want to keep everything inside the drain) Leave everything to sit and work for about 30 mins (dont use the sink during this time). After 30 mins, remove the cover and let hot water run thru the pipes for about 2-3 mins. for really tough clogs you may need to repeat
Okay, this stuff is AMAZING! DIY shower cleaner -- vinegar and dish detergent. Don't worry about the brand or color. We used clear store brand detergent and it was GREAT! NO SCRUBBING required. As long as you can tolerate the smell :)
