Pour déboucher ses canalisations naturellement, verser 1/2 tasse de bicarbonate de soude, puis 1/2 tasse de vinaigre. Recouvrir avec un chiffon humide, attendre cinq minutes, découvrir puis faire couler de l'eau bouillante.
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.
