Avoid Corrosive Drain Cleaners
Corrosive Drain Cleaners are Never the Solution
There are a few things you can do to help with your clogged or slow drain that does not involve corrosive chemicals.
How to Unclog A Drain With Baking Soda and Vinegar • Pour a pot of boiling hot water down your drain. • Dump in about 1/2 c. baking soda. Let that sit for a few minutes. • Then, pour a mixture of 1 c. vinegar and 1. c very hot water down on top of the baking soda. • Cover with a drain plug (to keep the reaction down below the drain surface) if you have one and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. • Flush one more time with a pot of boiling water.
This will not help with a severely clogged drain, but if you have a slow drain, it can help move things along.
