Ingredients

  • 3/4 to 1

    cup baking soda

  • 1/2

    cup white vinegar

Directions

Pour 3/4 to 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 minutes (don’t use the sink during this time). After 30 minutes, remove the cover and let hot water run through the pipes for about 2 to 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. Freshen Drains with Baking Soda and Vinegar Mix 1/2 cup baking soda with 1/4 cup table salt and pour down drain Follow by pouring 1 cup of heated vinegar down the drain (it will foam and bubble) Let it sit for 15 minutes After 15 minutes run hot tap water for 30 to 60 seconds. Baking soda and vinegar are the foundation of DIY cleaning! It’s really that simple. For just pennies you can keep your drains and home fume free by using baking soda and vinegar instead of harsh chemicals or calling the plumber.
