Unclog drain mix :) 1/2 c. baking soda, 1/2 c. vinegar. Put down sink cover the drain, wait 15 minutes and pour about 5 C. boiling water down. You might need to use a something long to poke it down inside the drain to help it. Used this today and it worked!!
to get rid of the nasty black gunk in your drain: 1. Boil a pot of water. 2. Meanwhile pour baking soda down the drain. 3. Once the water has reached a rolling boil pour it down the drain. 4. Let the water and baking soda work at decomposing and sterilizing the grime for 10 minutes. 5. After 10 minutes, pour 1 cup of bleach down the drain to completely kill any remaining mildew or bacteria. this process every few months. It will also keep the nasty mildew smell at bay.
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. This really works!
One Pinner Said: This works! I used in our bathroom tub with a little more vinegar than they suggest and kept dumping periodically until no more bubbles. Never buying Draino again!
