Down the drain
I was extremely excited this morning to notice that the water was draining really slowly in the bathroom sink. I realise that for most people this is not a cause for celebration, but now that I have discovered this awesome way to unclog the drain I’m simply delighted. (Before I figured this out I spent an inglorious afternoon taking apart the p-trap and putting it all back together rather badly just so I could avoid the use of disgusting draino).
Remove any caps/plugs etc to allow easiest flow of water and if there is any standing water in the sink bail it out or wait for it to drain out
- Pour a cup of baking soda into the drain
- Follow with a cup of warm vinegar.
- Wait for volcano action.
- Leave for 15 minutes
- Pour boiling water down drain and following with warm water until running clear.
- (You might need to repeat a second time — I did)
Its really fun, totally non toxic and works like a charm!
To maintain clog free drains, simply use the baking soda and vinegar trick once a month as a matter of routine. You’ll never need draino again!
