Clogged drains are very annoying!
You may have noticed that sometimes there is standing water in your kitchen or bathroom sink.
However you don’t have to spend money on different solutions that are not always efficient.
The secret ingredients for clogged drains are baking soda and vinegar.
How to use baking soda and vinegar.
You should first of all know that this method doesn’t work well if the tubes are very clogged, but it is however very efficient if you want to clear the tubes.
These two ingredients cannot be compared with other solutions that can be found in shops and that are not ecofriendly.
On the other hand you have to be patient and you will see that they really work.
Pour some hot water down the drain. Put a tablespoon of baking soda and let it a few minutes to action.
After this period pour hot water and vinegar (the same quantity).
Keep the drain closed for 5-10 minutes. Pour again hot water.
Why does this method work?
Baking soda and hot water remove dirt on the tubes and the explosive reaction that takes place when you pour vinegar removes everything else that has accumulated on the tubes.
And finally the boiled water will clean it entirely.
It is essential not to mix baking soda and vinegar.
Pour them separately and let them do their job.
Other cleaning methods:
Keep in mind that natural solutions do not action very fast and that is why they cannot be compared with chemicals.
Sometimes it may be necessary to repeat the procedure.
Baking soda and lemon juice.
This is a very efficient method and the only thing you have to do is to mix 100gr baking soda and 200gr lemon juice.
After you have poured them down the drain, pour hot water.
Salt, borax and vinegar. Mix 50g salt, 10ml vinegar and 50g borax.
This is very efficient but as I have already said it may be necessary to repeat the procedure several times
Boiled water. Pour boiled water down the drain if you want to get rid of grease or oil.
