      Best (eco-friendly!) drain cleaner: 3/4-1 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup white vinegar. Pour in drain and cover with plug. Let sit 30 minutes, then run hot water through drain for 3-4 minutes. Voila! Clean drain.

      #Cleaning Tip- Did you know your kitchen drain should be cleaned once a month? Pour a handful of baking soda and then 1/2 cup of white vinegar into the drain. It’ll create a small erupting volcano, so cover the drain for several minutes and then rinse with cold water after 1/2 hour.

      Homemade Drain Cleaner. Same as other blog post/pin uses vinegar and baking soda. My experience is that a mico-sized snake to clean drains will really get the drain going again.

      Unclog drain: If you have a moderately clogged drain, try this homemade drain cleaner: Pour 1/2 cup of baking soda down the drain followed by 1/2 cup of vinegar. Be careful. The two ingredients interact with foaming and fumes, so replace the drain cover loosely. Let the concoction set for about three hours before running water. If you know the slow drain is from grease, try this treatment: Pour in 1/2 cup of salt and 1/2 cup of baking soda followed by a teakettle of boiling water. Allow to sit overnight.

      Unclog drain. Keep the plumber away- Natural Homemade Drain Cleaner 12 Aug posted by TidyMom 19 Comments Did you know that some Feng Shui masters say that clogged drains deplete finances, health, aspirations, travel, clog sinuses, and simply, wreak havoc in general. I don’t know about you……..but a clogged drain can be rather pesky and annoying, not to mention, rather costly if you have to call in a plumber. So to keep my life running smoothly, both literally and metaphorically, I look in my kitchen pantry for all the ingredients I need to unclog my pipes and I can do it without causing damage to the environment or my pocket book! 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 (don’t 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 – but I find if I do this on a regular basis (about once a month) it keeps my drains clear and fresh with out any problems.

    Once a month, I add a cup of Distilled White Vinegar & 1 Cup of Baking Soda (adding both neutralizes the pH but the bubbling action gently scrubs any debris you can’t get to inside the drum) directly into the drum and use HOT water for washing. Then, I add about ½ cup of vinegar into the fabric softener compartment and ½ cup of baking soda into the detergent compartment.
